Salmon Potato Cakes with Dill & Lime Mayonnaise Recipe

This is a departure from the great salmon patty. I know there are a great deal of recipes out there for salmon potato cakes, but the lime mayonnaise may truly be the thing that makes these stand out from the rest. Potato cakes are additionally scrumptious in a burger bun with the added mayonnaise to avoid them from being excessively dry.

Fresh dill was used here but dried dill will work fine.  One tablespoon of chopped fresh dill is the equivalent of one teaspoon of the dried kind but if you want more delectable flavours then try to take the fresh herb approach.  

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
