I used tilapia fish and cake-breadcrumbs it turned out great. If your on a low salt diet like me. Then just use a little light soy sauce in place of salt.

I was looking in the frig. for the makings for a meal and seen the Saute Express Squares I seen at the grocery, and brought for the first time, but had forgotten about. Since I had never used them before I got on Land O Lakes.com in search for a recipe for these intriguing little flavor squares. Since Teriyaki was one of the flavors I brought I made the Teriyaki Salmon Cakes with the Asian Slaw. They were amazing!! I did cheat a little and used canned Salmon since that was what I had, but am going to buy fresh salmon and make this recipe again. The Broccoli Slaw was just the right flavor on top to set it off. Very Good!! Another flavor I bought in the Land O Lakes Saute Express line was the Italian Herb. I added less than half a cube of this flavor to a can of plain condensed tomato soup made with milk and served with the Teriyaki Salmon Cakes and Asian Slaw. The soup tasted like a savory tomato basil soup. Wonderful meal on a very cold day here! Glad I discovered these Saute Express Cubes!!
