This recipe did not taste good at all. We made a few and tried them just to see if we should keep going, and there was just something not right about it. I guess it was the picante sauce; it made it just a little too sweet and not spicy at all!

I made this with a can of salmon and panko breadcrumbs. Delicious. I also used lemon juice instead of lime, but next time will try the lime juice. The picante that I used was very hot so I upped the proportion of mayo to picante. I liked this recipe much better than my usual salmon cake recipe and so did my husband.
