When creating my recipe for Hellmann’s I replaced eggs in my salmon cakes with Hellmann’s Olive Oil Mayo – it actually made the more flavorful and moist. My family loves these salmon cakes, they are quick and simple to make and best of all, healthy. The avocado mayo makes the salmon cakes even more appetizing to the pallet, and look incredible when placed on top with a sprinkle of fresh chopped cilantro and slice of lime.
