"Wow! My turned out fantastic. They're huge patties though and I made a few extra. Very tasty. We were 3 couples and everyone enjoyed them. Be careful with the amount of salmon called for. We can't buy a 14 3/4 oz. can."

"Too much liquid, the mixture was very soft and patties too mushy when cooked. Also diluted the taste of the salmon completely, my family would not eat them."
