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

"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.."
