I wanted to try these because I thought they would be healthier than the ones I usually make with the "rich buttery round crackers". The taste of the salmon shined in this recipe, but the texture of the cornmeals was a bit much. It reminded me of the breading typically used on fried catfish. Having said that, both my partner and I did enjoy them.

These were definitely crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside, but the taste was very bland. More cornmeal-y than salmon-y.

we thought this tasted almost like a salmon-flavored hushpuppy...seemed to be an awful lot of cornmeal in there. My husband also felt they needed a little "something" as a flavor boost. Next time I might try some lemon juice and/or some dill weed.

I'm sorry , but I found these to be quite bland & dry. Not sure what I did wrong, but they did not come out tender as they did for other reviewers.

Well, I had to make these with tuna instead of salmon so I'm leaving this unrated for now, but the way my kids raved over them, I know I'll be back to rate the real thing soon! I make tuna and/or salmon patties a lot but had never used either cornmeal or grits, and although my family will eat both I really was not sure how they would go over in the patties. The kids said they never wanted me to go back to the old way, lol, and all went back for *thirds*! (For those who might try it, I don't think the tuna comes close to doing this recipe justice and I had to add a bit of olive oil, lemon juice and some other spices to try and replicate the richer flavor of the salmon; it worked alright but I know the recipe as written would be ten times better.) I had mine with tartar sauce and lemon, one dd had ketchup, another had ranch dressing, and yet another melted cheese on hers, lol. Tell Emaw 'thanks' from my brood! :o)

I made these into little appetizers and they were the first to go! I wasnt sure how they would turn out as I used all cornmeal, but the texture was perfect and the taste~marvelous. I served them with tarter sauce and chipotle mayo on the side. Tell E-maw it's OK to be bossy when you have a winning recipe! Thanks again Riff for posting this~I will be making this again very soon.
