A family favorite when I was growing up. A nice change from burgers and quick to whip up after a long day at work.

Very good salmon patties, the only thing I did differently was to add yellow pepper to the mixture and I used Panko crumbs for rolling them in. I fried them in a combination of butter and oil.
