• Two 6- to 7-ounce cans boneless, skinless wild Alaskan salmon, drained
• ½ cup finely chopped red onion
• 3 eggs, slightly beaten
• 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
• 3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or 3 teaspoons dried, divided
• ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• 4 cups frozen hash-brown shredded potatoes (about 12 ounces)
• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
• ⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
• 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and chopped
• 1 teaspoon lemon juice
1. Combine salmon, onion, eggs, mustard, 2 tablespoons fresh dill (or 2 teaspoons dried), pepper and salt in a large bowl. Add potatoes and stir to combine.
2. Preheat oven to 200°F.
3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Fill a 1-cup measure two-thirds full of the salmon mixture and firmly pack it down. Unmold into the pan and pat to form a 3-inch cake. Repeat, making 3 more cakes. Cover and cook until browned on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Gently turn over and cook, covered, until crispy on the other side, 3 to 5 minutes more. Transfer the cakes to a baking dish; keep warm in the oven. Wipe out the skillet and cook 4 more cakes with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining salmon mixture.
4. Combine plain Greek yogurt, capers, lemon juice and the remaining dill in a small bowl. Serve the salmon cakes with the dill sauce. Enjoy!
