Salmon Cakes with Remoulade

This recipe can be as easy or difficult as you want. Using canned salmon is easy, poaching and shredding fresh salmon is difficult. Making your own breadcrumbs is difficult, but you can use store-bought plain breadcrumbs if you need to. Either way you will get the needed nutrition that salmon provides.

The sauce can be made and stored under refrigeration for up to a week. To lower the PH of the sauce, remove lemon juice from your ingredients.
