Salmon Cakes With Lemon Aioli

"This recipe makes about 7-8 salmon cakes, so you might want to double the recipe and the aioli as well. If you are serving these as a brunch to guests, then serve the salmon cakes on a platter lined with mixed greens and drizzled with the aioli on top or on the side, or just serve them on a plate...which ever way you choose to serve them they are delicious!"

    I didn't try the salmon cakes because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, but I did make the aioli. It was delicious! Thanks for another great recipe.

    SUGGESTIONS FOR SUBSTITUTIONS AND HOW TO REDUCE THE FAT I have made these a few times and have adlibbed each time. I've substitued dried bread crumbs for a combo of fresh bread crumbs and crushed bran flakes or crushed vegetables crackers. I have also used firm tofu when I didn't have enough salmon. I used left over salmon teriyaki which adds a wonderful flavour as well. I prefer fresh herbs and add twice the amount when using fresh herbs instead of dry. I added a bit of lemon zest as I didn't have lemon pepper which was very nice as well. If you use a non-stick pan you don't need any butter which will cut the fat in half. Use low fat mayo and the fat is further reduced without compromising flavour. There's lots you can do to adlib but you MUST have the lemon aioli with these salmon cakes. This is what makes this recipe SPECTACULAR.

    These are WONDERFUL Salmon Cakes. I was a little skeptical when I read some of the ingredients, however I did follow the recipe, but cut back on the dill in the cakes, and left out the horseradish in the aioli. So delicious... I can't wait to make them again. My husband loved them too.
