I really liked these cakes. I did change things a little by adding more seasoning, and spinach. They held together fine and I freeze them and eat them for lunches along with a salad. A great, and easy lunch on the go!
Mediterranean Salmon Cakes with Cucumber Sauce

My husband and I both enjoyed these salmon cakes. I used leftover grilled salmon and added 1/4 cup of dried onion flakes. Minced onion would probably have worked as well. I used 2 whole eggs for extra moisture and flavor. The sauce was very good with them. I'll definitely make these again.

The cakes were very tasty. Lots of flavor and seasoned just right. The thing that didn't work for me was the cucumber sauce. It didn't have much flavor and drowned out the salmon cakes when I had them together.

I used leftover salmon instead of canned. I didn't make the sauce but a remoulade instead. These were really tasty with a nice mix of flavors. I did have a little problem getting them to stay together while cooking them. They could have used a little extra binder.

I could not get these to stay together.

These were delicious; especially with the yogurt sauce (added 1/8 tsp. of salt to sauce); definite repeat! For those that had a problem with them falling apart, I believe can salmon will hold together better than cooked fresh salmon.

These were delicious and straight forward to make! Following advice from other comments, I used whole eggs-and the patties stayed together beautifully. The cucumber sauce went really well, making for a delicious meal!

These salmon cakes with the yogurt cucumber sauce were delicious. I used 0% fat Greek style yogurt, canned red salmon, fresh whole grain bread for the crumbs, and added 1/4 cup of finely chopped onion and 1/8 cup of diced red bell pepper. Had a problem with the mixture holding together so added another egg white. Really really yummy. Will be enjoying leftovers for lunch.

I love these and make them all the time. As others have noted, they don't hold together well -- adding an extra egg white might be helpful. They freeze well too!

I love salmon and chickpeas on their own, but I have to say I didn't like this combination. The taste of the chickpeas overpowered the salmon. Great yogurt sauce, though.

Awesomely awesome-- and easy, too. Add some mayo (Ya, I know, more calories) to get them to hold together better. And refrigerating them before cooking will also help keep them firm when handling. Canned salmon is the way to go on this one.
