If you wanted something as elegant and tasty as fresh crab cakes but you don’t have the money just now, this dish is a great alternative! These are not your run-of-the-mill salmon patties, nope. These are moist, thick, flavorful (yet mild) salmon cakes with a lot of eye appeal. They are certainly worth spending a few extra minutes on the details of this recipe. I love these for brunch with an old friend over a glass of Pinot Grigio or, as a light main entrée with green beans and some creamy pasta for side dishes. I usually try to submit versatile recipes in which changes make little difference but since this recipe involves only a small amount of canned salmon (you get about 1 ½ cans of salmon from the two cans once it’s been totally cleaned), any substitutions may significantly alter the flavor. I have listed a couple of viable substitutions that have worked out well for me in a pinch. Make this dish for someone special and, Bon Appétit, my good friends!
