“Here’s a quick and easy recipe that’s also a great way to use up leftover salmon. I like to serve it with a vegetable or crisp side salad.” The patties have a great dill taste! Aerial Ryan - Acra, NY

"I made these patties but used real mashed potatoes and they turned out great! My mom use to make them with real mashed potatoes but the added garlic and onion give it such a great flavor!"

"THis recipie was tasty. It was a twist on the way I usually make salmon patties, but my husband said he would still prefer the old way I make them. I put some sour cream, mayo, lots of crushed crackers, and kraft parmesan cheese...I don't use the dill, potato flakes, onion, or spices. I will probably make both recipies in the future."

"Why do people rate recipes before they make the dish, as these first two raters did. Is it just me or is that just plain stupid!"
