This is a great recipe! I have never made salmon patties before, and I am so glad I chose this recipe! I did add a few things, however. I added a shake of dried parsley leaves from one of the big honkin' containers, which probably equated to about 2 Tablespoons. I also added a couple shakes of paprika, for a little bit of spice (maybe about 1 tsp., or a little less). I also added a shake of garlic powder from the same type of honkin' container (probably about 1 tsp. or so). I don't really measure spices for stuff like this.... I dumped most of the salmon juice (eww...salmon juice) out, but I saved about a tablespoon and put it back in the mixture, just for a tad more moistness. I used canola oil to fry, and I rolled the patties in balls a little bigger than golf balls, then pressed them to about 3/4" thick. Cooking time was right-on. My husband really liked them, and I did too. Thanks for the wonderful recipe! :)
I have made salmon patties from many different recipes, looking for one that I really liked, and THIS IS IT!! It is my favorite, and so simple. The saltines are what makes a great improvement in taste over other recipes. Thanks, Cheri, for posting a winner (and so simple)
