    Bergy's Note:

    Quick easy recipe to make after a hard day's work. For the mashed potatoes use plain cooked potatoes mashed with no added ingredients. Just cook extra potatoes the night before and take out what you will need for this recipe. If you want a little spice add 1/2 tsp hot pepper flakes I like a bit of Tartar sauce and a green salad along side or a couple of steamed vegetables. Great summer dish. This recipe goes a long way from one small can of salmon. I would like to stress use leftover cooked potatoes not left over mashed potatoes that already have got a lot of extra ingredients in them!

      We made the following adaptions: 2 6 oz. cans of boneless, skinless pink salmon and used leftover garlic mashed potatoes. Also, added juice of 1/2 lime and zest. Served on a bed of baby field greens with cucumber sour cream sauce. Quick, easy and yummy!

      Quick and easy and very delicious. I used instant mashed potatoes and it worked fine. My husband thought they were wonderful, the best salmon cakes ever. I did use a small amount of butter and olive oil to saute them.

      These were a hit with my husband, kids and even my 11 month old loved. The only things I did differently was to soften the onions slightly in olive oil, and I used Garlic Salt, in place of salt pepper and parsley. Also I didn't bother with the crumbing, just quickly browned them in olive oil. Lovely, thankyou.
