Remove crusts from bread, break into pieces, and process in a food processor until they become fine crumbs.

Chop remaining scallion. Serve salmon cakes with sauce and garnish with scallion.
Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce
If using regular yogurt, place it in a strainer lined with a paper towel. Put the strainer over a bowl and place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to let the yogurt drain and thickened. In a small bowl, combine the thickened or Greek-style yogurt with mayonnaise, ginger, sesame oil, and soy sauce. Whisk until smooth.
