I have a huge herb garden and love using herbs in almost everything I cook. Living in the Pacific Northwest, we eat a lot of wild-caught salmon, so I use fresh herbs in this moist and delicious grilled recipe. On cooler days, bake it instead. —Michelle Glassmeyer Wunsch, Bothell, WA
My husband and I got this recipe from a chef in 1982...and we've never served salmon any other way since then! Everyone loves the mild-tasting marinade, and out here in Washington friends are always asking me for the recipe.
FISH of all kinds are meal-time mainstays for us in Nova Scotia, so my search for new and tasty ways to prepare fish never stops.
These lighter-than-air salmon patties are a favorite in my family and are especially good served with green beans and a tossed salad.

ONE SUMMER when my husband and I were enjoying our first "getaway" in years, we found ourselves stranded in our cabin cruiser with a dead battery.
When hunger set in, my husband rigged up a fishing line, and soon there were two trout sizzling on the portable grill.
We eventually made it home all right...and kept the recipe we'd devised.

For a fluffy and inexpensive way to serve seafood, try this delicious recipe. The salmon makes this dish so tasty and I love to serve these as appetizers or bring them to pot-lucks.—Marilyn Kutzli, Clinton, Iowa
"SINCE pinto beans and mashed potatoes were our usual daily fare, salmon was a special treat on Sundays. We ate these cakes fast as Mama could fry them—she couldn't get them off the griddle fast enough."
