I didn't have the cajun seasoning so I used lemon pepper instead. It was fabulous. The only other change I made was to add more pickles to the tartar sauce, which had an unusual but delicious taste. Quick, easy, and really good.

I used canned salmon and it worked well. I had to triple or more the cajun seasoning. It was tasty, but the patties were a bit dry. I will add cream or yogurt next time. I did not put mayo in the sauce, just doubled up on the well. This is a great use what is on the shelf recipe.
