“This is a recipe I concocted after a visit to Hawaii,” writes Susan Coryell. The Huddleston, Virginia reader shares her flaky salmon in a flavorful sauce that would be perfect for a rushed-for-time weeknight or special event alike.
"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."

This maple salmon is special because it comes from my mom, both my children like it and it's easy to prepare. I serve this recipe with rice and broccoli. The sauce tastes great on the rice. —Danielle Rothe, Greenville, New York
The combination of tender salmon, fresh cucumber sauce and a crisp, flaky crust makes this impressive dish perfect for special occasions. Mom likes to decorate the pastry with a star or leaf design for holidays.
This is a terrific way to fix salmon...and it's so easy to do. The marinade mellows the fish flavor, and the dill sauce is a wonderful complement. I once served this recipe to 12 people from the Pacific Northwest who declared it was the best salmon they'd ever eaten!
