These are very tasty. I used gluten free rolled oats that were processed just enough to break up the flakes. After mixing, the mixture was allowed to rest for a few minutes before shaping. The rest period allowed for the oats to absorb some of the moisture. After forming the patties they also rested while the oil heated. The oats produced a nice moist pattie that held together nicely. At serving time they were topped with a creamy horseradish sauce.

Very good. I halved the recipe, just used 1 can sockeye salmon, 1 egg and no milk, almost 1/2 cup oatmeal. Made into 2 patties and it stayed together nice and fried up well. Thanks for another tasty salmon recipe for my collection.

My family really enjoyed this recipe. I mixed up the ingredients in advance and let chill before shaping them into patties and cooking. The dill gives great flavor but we liked them better with a bit of seasoned salt and a dash of cayene. I used fresh (frozen) salmon so estimated on the amount of oatmeal but we liked the texture of the cooked patties as well. This is my go-to recipe for salmon cakes!

I like the taste -- used fresh dill, which I think helped:) BUT consistency waaay off. Tried with quick oats and then 5 minute old fashioned, both too 'wet' to make good patties. And yes, I drained the salmon before using. Anyone who got good patty consistency care to share your secret?

I like this recipe for salmon patties because it uses oatmeal instead of bread crumbs or crackers. I add lemon pepper and salt and pepper so that it has a bit more zing. Also, since I have a dairy allergy, I used rice milk in place of the milk, and fried them in olive oil with a bit of "buttery spread". All my kids loved them; good with mayonaise on top, no bun needed. It was easy for my 12 year old to mix and shape, so it will be a regular on the menu.

I thought this was ok. It was missing something for me......salt maybe? They were ok.

What a cool recipe! I made these a while back and completely forgot to review them. This is now the only salmon pattie recipe I use. I like the fact that its pretty basic and adapts well to whatever veggies I have in the fridge. Definitely feels healthier than eating a regular tuna pattie! Thanks for posting this.
