Baked in muffin pans and served with sauce on the side, these cute cakes make a fantastic light meal. You can also bake a double batch and freeze some for a quick, healthy supper later in the month. —Nikki Haddad, Germantown, Maryland

"Thanks for the info on the egg substitute."

MY REVIEW

"Can't rate this fairly since I haven't yet tried it. But thanks to lorrettaJ for stating that she used 2 eggs rather than egg substitute; otherwise, I would have passed this recipe by. It's much more helpful - and attractive to try - in my opinion, if contributors would state amounts that are equal to the substitute when they've substituted something. Thanks much, "lorrettaJ"!"

"This was delicious! My salmon-hater husband loved it. I didn't have fresh red pepper so I substituted jarred roasted red peppers. As many others said, I will double the sauce next time. This one is a keeper!"

MY REVIEW

"I left out the celery and capers (didn't have any), but otherwise made the recipe exactly as written. We liked these, and they're certainly diet-friendly if that's a concern for you. I baked them for the full 15 minutes; they were thoroughly cooked and the texture was good (definitely not dry**), but they didn't hold together very well when I removed them from the muffin tin ... maybe they could be baked longer, or maybe they need more egg or more bread ... I'm not exactly sure how to fix that issue, but will experiment. Also, the sauce was pretty skimpy for 4 servings so I doubled the sauce ingredients. **Those who thought the cakes were dry might have used commercially-packaged dry bread crumbs instead of the soft crumbs that are called for. If so, try cutting back the amount next time and see if that helps."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 17, 2015

"Had excellent results. Based on other reviews re being dry, reduced bread crumbs to 1-1/4 c and added one more Tbsp. of mayo. Used 2 eggs in place of substitute and 2 T parsley for cilantro. Loved sauce but works out to only about 1 tsp. per muffin--I doubled for 4 servings."
