Reviews for Crunchy Salmon Cakes with Greek Yogurt Sauce
"Hello Simplefoods, you can make this with can salmon. I would just look at the ounces of salmon needed. One and a quarter pound is twenty ounces. I am not sure what size can salmon comes in, but you probably need at least two cans unless it is the smaller cans like tuna then you probably need at least three. Hope this helps, salmon patties are delicious!"
"Can't rate this properly as I haven't made it yet - need to know: has anybody made this with canned salmon? Fresh salmon is horribly expensive here and will sub, but am not sure how much. Any suggestions? I really want to try this - sounds delicious."
"This was a great recipe for salmon cakes. It stayed together well, and that is usually the hard part for me when it comes to salmon or crab cakes. I will make these again, maybe add some more herbs to the mix."
"The salmon cakes and sauce are both amazing. I got tons of compliments when I cooked them for friends. Also, very easy to make."
"I made this recipe just like it said. Also made the sauce and both were excellent."
"My entire family loved these salmon cakes. I didn't make the sauce though instead served with tartar sauce."
"This turned out exactly as advertised. It's an easy, no-fuss recipe and really delicious."
