These were great! I made substituting the oat bran for oatmeal. I fine chopped them in the blender before adding them to the mix. Worked well. Loved these burgers and will have again. I like the fact they are fairly healthy and they really taste great! Thanks for this recipe Paula!

We loved this for a couple of reasons. This year (2008) is going to be an inflationary year, what with oil at over $100 per barrel (!) and this is an economical recipe. Also, it's delicious!! In a sense fish cakes are fish cakes, but Paula's recipe makes the most of canned salmon and is healthy as well. I did not sub anything except didn't use skim milk but 2% milk, and real eggs. We felt these were best with a glob of good real-tomato ketchup. This recipe is healthy and low-fat and highly recommended. The quantities given are perfect, and I had no need to add liquid from the cans. Thanks, Paula, for a recipe I'l use again and again. PS, 2 days later: Husband said, "Not true, I did NOT need ketchup at all!! I loved the burgers just as they were!" He used the leftover burger as a sandwich filling the day after I'd made them. Just so you know, Paula, LOL!

Yumm! We really liked these. We didn't have rosemary, but used thyme and sage and lemon pepper instead. The flavor was yummy, however they didn't stick together very well. I'm not sure what I did wrong - they almost seemed too moist, so fried a couple of patties and then added more oat brand to the next batch - nothing seemed to work. No worries though, it was more of a crumbled salmon patty, and it was still excellent on buns with mayo. Will make again and will keep experimenting to find the perfect combination that will stick together :).

When I saw this recipe I thought Ah!! just what I am looking for. I have had a tin of Alaskan salmon in my larder just waiting for this recipe. Everything about this recipe is healthy and so good for you I made them just as written, and I had mine with a small side salad and a little light mayonnaise. I will definitely make them again I do like tinned salmon, maybe I will have them on a bun next time. made for diabeties month November 2010 Thank you for posting.

Really marvelous! I made a half amount using a 7 1/2 oz can of salmon and it made 4 lovely patties. DH and I both enjoyed one and we have 2 left so it's very economical as well as delicious! Lots of good health things happening in this recipe. Thanks bunches for this one Paula!

Instead of oat bran I used seasoned bread crumbs and left out the jalapeno pepper. I used one egg to bind them together and they turned out fine.

These were really sensational, Paula! I don't use oat bran much and love that these burgers use it! The burgers hold together but don't use an excess of binder. The jalapeno/rosemary flavors really "make" the flavor. We grilled them (gas grill) and find it better to cook longer on first side to ensure ease in getting off the grill. Note: I used two small cans of Costco salmon, real eggs, and less milk). Thanks Paula, for posting. Roxygirl
