This is a favorite of my kids.... Its easy, tasty, and quite a penny stretcher. And goes great with the 99c bags of broccoli, cauliflower and carrot frozen vegetable melody, and a quick cheese sauce (3 tbsp. butter, 3 tbsp. flour, let cook 1 min. 1 1/2 cups milk, and and a cup of processed cheese like Velveeta (but the save-a-lot brand taste just as good and a lot cheaper) cut cheese up into cubes let melt. add about a dash of nutmeg, and a dash of pepper) and your done. Under 5 bucks to feed a family of 4 and probably with some leftovers. ALSO THESE SALMON PATTIES IF MADE INTO SMALLER PATTIES MAKE FOR A GREAT APPETIZERS SPECIALLY IF YOU WRAP THEM IN PUFF PASTRY AND BAKE (remember you must fry first). makes about 24 small 1/2 dollar-size appetizers. LEFTOVERS: They also make great for sandwiches, for school lunch bags or brown bags and picnics.

For myself, there is a LOT of seasoning flavors going on here. Almost to the point of distraction from the taste of salmon. Your directions didn't say to drain the salmon or not , so I did. Even with draining it , there was no way they could be formed into patties. I used my ice cream scoop to plop them in a fry pan and then I used the back of my pancake turner to flatten them down somewhat. I'm sure there are others that wouldn't mind the amount of seasoning at all. Just a personal preference thing I'm sure :) Made for Think Pink '08
