I grew up eating salmon patties and I'm not sure why I don't make them more often now. We really enjoyed this version of them. The only change I made was to use a can of red salmon. Used the rest of the hashbrowns to make a side dish casserole.
I made these on 1/17/08 for our dinner.I thought it it was sort of unusal to add potato to a salmon recipe,but that's what made this recipe stand out in my mind. I didn't have the green onion,so two tablespoons of finely chopped white onion was used.Instead of the frozen hashbrowns,one small grated potato was used.And I "raised the spice bar" by adding 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.We enjoyed the delicate crunch on the outside,and the slight hint of lemon-pepper on the inside.Thanks for posting,this will be made again."Keep Smiling :)"
DH and I really enjoyed these. I had a small can (6 oz) size can of pink salmon that I used to make this. In place of the Ritz crackers, I used a whole wheat cracker. Coating the patties in cornmeal produces a nice crust without a lot of added fat with a tender, moist center. These will definitely be a repeat.
