These lighter-than-air salmon patties are a favorite in my family and are especially good served with green beans and a tossed salad. -Beverly Willis, Bridgetown, Nova Scotia

"I have been looking for a good recipe for salmon patties for years, and I finally found it. My husband said they tasted like the salmon patties his Norwegian grandmother used to make."
