When you’re making salmon cakes, applesauce is a pleasant substitution for the egg. The cakes must be turned carefully, but they taste great and stay moist in the center. —Maggie G., Atlantic Beach, Florida
“This salmon recipe always reminds my husband and me of our wonderful vacations to the Maryland seashore,” relates Angie Philkill of Fort Gratiot, Michigan. Topped with a creamy mustard sauce, the patties put convenient canned salmon to scrumptious use.
"SINCE pinto beans and mashed potatoes were our usual daily fare, salmon was a special treat on Sundays. We ate these cakes fast as Mama could fry them—she couldn't get them off the griddle fast enough."
I combine seven easy ingredients for this main dish. When I was a girl growing up on the farm, my mom often fixed these when we were late in the field. They're also tasty with chopped green peppers added to the mixture.—Bonnie Evans, Cameron, North Carolina
