Pierside Salmon Patties Recipe

Pierside Salmon Patties Recipe

A creamy dill sauce enhances the flavor of the salmon in this enjoyable entree I served my card-player friends at a "Let's Go Fishing" luncheon. I hosted it at our summer lake cottage, the perfect setting for my special theme. —Martha Conaway, Pataskala, Ohio

"BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY THIS! ABSOLUTELY AWFUL! This has got to be the worst recipe for salmon patties! What a waste of salmon! Will stick to the "fillet/ steak" from now on!"

"I think I will just stick to eating my salmon in "steak" form and forget about making it into patties. Makes me remember why I hated salmon/tuna patties as a kid."

"The recipe description originally mentioned a lemon dill sauce. The recipe is correct as published without any lemon in the sauce. We appologize for the error, it will be corrected here soon.

"I made these salmon patties to freeze for individual dinners for my husband to take to work. Mine did not look like the picture, I think like the other reviewer- if I would have coated them in panko crumbs they would have resembled the photo more. I havent gotten the rating from my hubby but because its salmon I am sure he will enjoy. easy to freeze individually and then place frozen patties in large freezer bag, removing as you need them."

"I made a 1/2 portion and they turned out well. They were tender but needed a little more flavour, for my tastes. I might add a little fresh ginger or garlic to the patties next time. I made my own tartar sauce but found when I topped them instead with a little of the coleslaw that I had brought in my lunch, they perked right up. I did it on a whim but plan on doing that the next time - it was different & yummy!"

"This recipe is great. I love salmon. The only change that I made was to make the patties and roll (or pat) them in panko bread crumbs before cooking. They get really crunchy like my family likes."

"Although I haven't made this recipe yet, it sounds delicious & I will try it soon. My 94 year old mother makes salmon patties for some of us when we're visiting her. All my family like salmon patties. It's good that salmon is a healthy choice! The lemon in the salmon patty mix is a nice addition. Why would you not give a recipe a good rating if you haven't even tried it?"

"actually I did not try this recipe - how can it be lemony dill sauce with no lemon in the sauce? Was thinking maybe something else was also left out of this recipe!"
