3. Form salmon mixture into four 1-inch thick patties; sprinkle remaining cracker crumbs over each patty.

4. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook patties in hot oil until golden and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

½ cup plain yogurt

1 Tbsp fresh or dried dill

1 tsp lemon juice
