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.
When our family was all home, I made this recipe often. As the children grew up, it became more difficult to be together for a meal, but Sunday evenings were always ours. These delicious sandwiches helped make those meals special. —June Formanek, Belle Plaine, Iowa
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.

Chowders and stew are my specialty, because I enjoy making use of the bounty at hand—especially the wonderful variety of seafood from the cold waters of the North Atlantic, I devised this recipe years ago, and it remains one of my favorites. I often make it for my daughters and their families when they visit.
"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."
One morning, years ago, my husband, Todd, and I whipped up this dish as a way to use leftover smoked salmon...it caught on! Now we always make extra portions of this tasty fish at dinner so we can have our family favorite in the morning.
