The first time I cooked this recipe, I found it decent but a little bland. On second time I substituted a pound of fresh salmon, poached, for the canned and threw 2 tsps "Old Bay Seasoning" (available in most grocery stores) in the mixture, and found that this worked wonders! - 14 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I found the original recipe a little bland and dry, but the ideas this recipe spawned lead me to this. I substituted fresh salmon that I pulsed in the food processor; (to form small chunks) used fresh bread crumbs along with a couple of tsps of Old Bay. The cakes I made were thin,(like 6 oz hamburger patties) so the salmon would cook before they browned too much. I cooked them using half butter and oil. It imparts a little better flavor then oil alone. They were extremely moist!!! I've used two sauces: first, I tried a dill flavored Hollandaise. Quite nice. Next, I made a Brown Butter and found the nutty flavor worked great. - 31 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
