While I liked this I found that the flavour of the salmon, lime and ginger were heading a bit in the same direction and something was needed to offset that. The texture and consistency of the patties was terrific. I think for my personal tastes about 500g of salmon would be better maybe with a little sweet chilli and/or soy. I thought this recipe may be more suited to the milder taste of tinned salmon rather than fresh salmon which at the end of the day is a fairly expensive option and it just had a bit too much salmon flavour for the other quantities involved.
