Excellent recipe. I just made these for a dinner tonight and had 1 mini bite size piece left over, so I thought I would try it. Delicious.

Now, One bit of advice ... make sure to follow the directions. Little things like sauteing the vegetables, using both honey and mustard and FRESH bread crumbs is important. Substituting can cause the cake to be dry. If you follow the recipe, you will have a great cake. I made the sauce, but that will be for tonight. I did use fresh salmon which I think does make a difference, but I think canned would be just as good in this recipe.

Excellent recipe ! Will certainly make again

Fabulous!!! That is all I can say on this recipe.. What a winner for us, it is really easy and such a great taste sensation.. I made it with fresh cooked salmon which I feel you just can not beat, I did not find the mixture to be dry at all, but that maybe because of using fresh fish as it has far more moisture in it. The sauce is excellent and I made ours with a mix of parsley, dill and mint so it probably went over a tablespoon but the taste was so gorgeous.. I also found that the flavour of the salmon cake itself was totally delicious without the sauce but with it WOW definitely sent it over the top.. A truly fabulous recipe and one that we will be enjoying again next week as I have more salmon in the freezer and just told my hubby that it is on the menu next week and he is very happy... Totally delicious!!!!!!!!

I didn't even realize I was doing two of your recipes in one night! This was also AMAZING! I didn't have parsley so I did fresh cilantro. Great stuff! In the past I have done salmon cakes solely in the frying pan, I actually really liked adding baking on the ticket better ;) As always Sharon, muchas gracias!!!!

So as a child, "salmon patties" were a common dinner during lent on Fridays. And mom only used canned salmon. In fact, I didn't have fresh salmon until I was in my 20s!!! So I made grilled salmon the night before, so I chose this recipe to revamp the leftovers into something completely different - and so glad I chose this recipe. . .knew it would be a winner if Sharon posted it! I made it as written, but did add a little extra salmon just to use it up and it worked just fine. I used some Irish Soda bread that was on it's last leg for the breadcrumbs. . .it crumbled very easily so no need to process it. I also added a little lemon pepper and some old bay seasoning (seemed like the right thing to do). My patties were behaving in the frying pan, so I just cooked them on both sides in the frying pan then put them on a preheated cast iron pan in a 400 degree oven to keep crisping as I got all of the patties cooked on the stovetop. Hubby says the crispier the better! Served this with a side of asparagus and my hubby loved it.

Oh so yummy! Very light and delicate. I loved the color of the veggies and herbs and the sauce was fantastic.

I didn't have celery or parsley in the house but that didn't affect the taste, so I know it will be even tastier next time I make these. I used one slice of Ezekiel bread and half a cup of crushed Gardetto's snack mix as substitutes for the breadcrumbs. The dill sauce is the crowning glory and I love dill with any fish.

I forgot to rate this until I decided to make them again tonight....THESE ARE DELICIOUS!!!! My husband and kids devoured them a few weeks back and begged for more. The sauce is a perfect compliment... (I also added 1 teaspoon of mint.) I will now add these to permanent recipe collection..THANK YOU!!

These were very good. I used the food processor on 2 slices of white bread for the crumbs, and added just a little of the salmon juice until the mixture felt right. For the sauce, I had to use 1/2 cup mayo, since I had no yogurt, and 1 tea of dried dill weed. These patties, with this sauce, are some of the best I've had. Thanks.

I've enjoyed salmon patties since I was a child and we enjoyed this variation very much. The sauce is subtley but deliciously flavored. Instead of honey and mustard, I used a nice honey mustard. I also used dill AND cilantro AND parsley to flavor the sauce. Thanks for posting!

I made these for my family (using canned salmon) and we all enjoyed them. I will certainly make them again and I plan to pass the recipe on to my mother. We found them very moist and delicious. I didn't add the honey, and actually I didn't make the sauce as I had a jar of garlic aoli in the fridge - this was delicious with them. Thanks for the recipe!
