      We loved it! I got requests for thirds from my youngest, who is an extremely picky eater, so that's pretty amazing. I'll make a few changes next time, though. I'm going to try cutting back on the crackers. I'm also going to either eliminate or halve the salt. With the salted crackers, it's really not that necessary. They were so yummy, though. My mom always served salmon patties with fried potatoes growing up, so that's what we had with them too. It's kind of a comfort factor for me. :)

      A really nice, simple salmon croquette recipe. I added 1 tsp dill weed and thought this added a lot of nice flavor. Also, I covered the croquettes in Panko (Japanese bread crumbs) instead of cracker crumbs. I found that the patty shape worked better than the croquette shape even though I used mashed potatoes. Excellent!

      I don't care much for salmon. Even less for the canned kind. This recipe was absolutely unbelievable. Her sweetness wants to eat healthy. Salmon is on top of the list of must eat foods. This not only was edible, but tasted like a million stars. I made mine with the baked potato. Man, was it good! I'm not going to lose this recipe!! Thanks a bunch!
