This is a very nice salmon pattie. I made a couple of minor changes to suit my tastes. I subbed white onions for the green & sauteed them briefly with the red pepper. I also added the zest of half a lemon. This recipe goes together very easily & has a real nice flavor (I highly recommend the zest for a stronger lemon flavor).

great dinner! I adjusted the recipe to what was on hand and it still worked out great. I used lime instead of lemon, olive oil instead of butter and old bay instead of cayenne. To add more zest I added fresh garlic, and celery. I also dusted them with flour to help with browning. This recipe allows for the cook to be creative if he/she still follows the basic steps.

Such an easy recipe, but very tasty. The only change I made was to add a touch of Old Bay seasoning, as I use this seasoning to taste in just about all my seafood recipes. Thanks for the posting, Chris!

Very tasty, I used an additonal 8 oz of salmon (as I had it to use) without increasing the other ingredients. I also used Old Bay as my "seasoned salt" as it is a staple in seasoning MD seafood, and jarred roasted sweet red pepper. We enjoyed these a lot, thanks for sharing.

All my children raved about this recipe. I had frozen salmon and did not feel like it was good enough for grilling so I decided to make salmon cakes instead. This is the recipe I chose and I was not disappointed at all. I had tried Chris' sesame chicken recipe, and loved it, and was fully confident that this one was going to be a winner as well. I too added a dash of old bay, and a little chopped red chili pepper, and coated the cakes in panko before frying in half butter half oil.

Thank you so much for this recipe.

Very good dinner tonight....your salmon cakes were gobbled up. I too added some Old Bay and some seasoned salt and pepper.
I made these early in the afternoon and refrigerated till time to fry them. They cooked up so quickly ......a really easy meal. I also made Uncle Bill's Deep Fried Zucchini Strips and it was a good combination.Thanks Chris. Donna

Delicious! I really enjoyed this! It was a little sticky, but it fried up very well. Looking forward to having the leftover patties tomorrow as a sandwich for lunch! I made as posted, but think I'll add some Old Bay Seasoning as suggested by bobter. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.

This is the best salmon cake recipe I've tried so far. I topped them with Kittencal's Lemon Aioli (Salmon Cakes and Lemon Aioli). It was a hit with DH, too! I doubled the recipe so we can enjoy them again for lunch!

We went to Alaska on our honeymoon and my husband went salmon fishing so we sent a lot of it home. I will bake the salmon for one meal and flake up the leftovers to use for these salmon cakes and they are fantastic!!! They are almost as good as the fresh cakes we had when we were in Alaska!! Thanks for the recipe!!
