"Lower fat version of salmon patties that we like. The muffin tin method is one I saw in a Taste of Home recipe."

    These baked up nice & crispy which was a welcome plus. The recipe is easy to follow and the salmon cakes had a nice texture and held together beautifully. . Next time I would add more of the Old Bay to perk up the flavor a bit. (Note: I tend to use more seasonings as I reduce salt wherever possible.) I didn't make the sauce portion of the recipe. I served with cocktail sauce instead. Thank yo for sharing a recipe I'll use again!

    I don't eat low fat or low salt. My choice is low carb. I used regular breadcrumbs but left off the topping - to cut carbs I use Crisco shortening to grease pans so that the muffins will come out. I tried cooking spray for one of them. Turns out all of them came out easily. I made a traditional white sauce on the stove with unsalted butter, flour, pepper and whole milk. It works fine if you have to use margarine and low fat milk.

    Mix is miracle whip instead of Mayonnaise


My wife and I live just outside of Atlanta, GA. Two daughters live in town, one with my two grandsons. My son is living in California. I'm a retired environmental manager at a manufacturing facility. My Mom and Dad would have loved this site. Dad was a huge collector of recipes and was in the food industry. Mom was a terrific cook as well. Another influence was a roommate at the Universtiy of Arkansas that was an excellent cook. Today I enjoy barbecuing and grilling year round and cooking in general. My latest adventure is in bread baking. I'm loving it and going to school on it right here on the bread forum. I'm active in a terrific church and also love fly fishing and fly tying.
