Serves 4

For aioli:

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

¼ teaspoon bottled minced garlic

For cakes:

3 6-ounce cans skinless boneless pink salmon in water, drained

¼ cup sliced scallions

¼ cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons plus ½cup dry breadcrumbs, divided

1 teaspoon salt-free Cajun seasoning blend

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon canola oil

Chopped fresh parsley

Lemon wedges

1. Prepare aioli: Combine ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

2. Prepare cakes: Combine salmon, onion, mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs, Cajun seasoning and mustard in a medium bowl. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a ½-inch-thick patty. Dredge patties in remaining breadcrumbs.

3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan and swirl to coat. Cook patties three minutes on each side or until lightly browned and heated through.

4. Serve aioli over salmon. Garnish with parsley and lemon wedges, if desired.
