Salmon Cakes with Yogurt Dill Sauce

While oatmeal is a wonderful way to add fiber, grains and nutrients to your diet, most folks think of it only as a breakfast food. It’s time to take oatmeal beyond the first meal of the day!

Oatmeal is a whole grain because it contains all of the parts of the oat grain, including the bran, endosperm and germ. Interestingly, “regular oatmeal” — the kind most of us have eaten our entire lives — isn’t the grain in its original form.

Adding oatmeal to these delicious salmon cakes boosts the nutrient content and adds a delicious texture. The yogurt dill sauce complements the flavor and is the perfect topping when the salmon cakes are served on a bun.
