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. -Beverly Willis, Bridgetown, Nova Scotia
