This recipe came from my grandparents, who got it from Good Housekeeping magazine. I have not yet tried it, but we have a freezer full of salmon, so I plan to try it soon!

Yummo - saved to a WW cookbook. I ended up just using 1/2 the salmon and keeping everything else the same - came to 12 points plus for 1/2 of it made that way - so great recipe for WW - and tasty too! THANK YOU! So glad I came across it this morning, as all the ingredients were already on hand!

- 3⁄4 cup nonfat yogurt, plain
- 1⁄4 cup egg substitute
