I combine seven easy ingredients for this main dish. When I was a girl growing up on the farm, my mom often fixed these when we were late in the field. They're also tasty with chopped green peppers added to the mixture.—Bonnie Evans, Cameron, North Carolina

"This recipe is delicious. I made only a few changes. Like another reviewer I doubled the Worcestershire sauce and the crackers. I used olive oil to fry the patties. Also, I used red salmon from Alaska. They were delicious. I highly recommend this recipe.

"These are very good! I tripled the Worcestershire sauce and added a bit more crackers. It made it perfect. Do not discard bones and skin, leave them in. I used olive oil to fry. Next time I will use bacon grease too! Make sure to put together in a ball in your hand and softy pat out in skillet. Make sure they have a nice brown crust before gently turning and browning other side. They will stay together that way. I give them a full 5 stars! Another recipe I make has 1/2 cup of flour in the recipe (which holds it together) but I like this recipe without the flour. The flavor is better. It's challenging without using flour but possible to do. 2/4/17 I used green onions and the Worcestershire sauce to taste (did not measure). Measured everything else precisely. I like the green onions even better!!!!"

"There are a few recipes never to stray from this should be one of them. I found this recipe to be very wet and not at all what I would have expected, I think I will stick to my own recipe."

"I made these tonight and they were pretty good. I think I can give them a little more flavor by experimenting with herbs and spices a bit as they were a little bland (thus I gave them a 4 instead of a 5). I was a little concerned because they did not seem very moist in the bowl, and I was afraid they would not hold together in the pan, but they did. I even dropped one when taking it out of the pan and it stayed together. I did mash them together pretty well when I shaped them. The only thing I did differently was to add a bit of olive oil with the butter when frying them. I will definitely make these again. This was an exceptionally quick and easy recipe. Be sure to drain the salmon very well.."
