Another recipe from my mother's collection. Good for children who don't really like fish. Goes well with rice.

I used Carr's table crackers instead of the soda crackers but didn't have enough of them for two cans worth of salmon so I added flour into the salmon mix. I also added a little worcestershire sauce, finely minced onions and celery. I dredged in breadcrumbs, let chill for an hour so that the cakes would hold well. I first baked at 375F for 15 minutes and then browned the sides in hot olive oil for a better presentation.

Absolutely delicious! I did them just as the recipe stated. I made a dilled mayonnaise to go with it, just a bit of mayo, coarse brown mustard, sugar, and dill. Thank you so much for this terrific recipe--it will be a favorite for many meals to come!

Thanks for sharing. I used fresh salmon instead of can. Pan fried it and added some salt and pepper to it. I also added garlic, green pepper and green onion. Instead of frying I bake them in an oven at 375 for 15 minutes. Tasty
