A really great basic salmon pattie recipe - I could not use the onion due to intolerance reasons but otherwise made as directed just upping the amount and using a 410 gram can of pink slamon and a 210 gram can of red salmon with a heap of left over mashed potato (dry mix not smooth). The DH reconned the mix needed an egg in it but I had to disagree as the patties formed and coioked really well at about 5 to 6 minutes per side (I got 7 patties at 150 grams each - yes I weighed them on the scales for uniformity) and they were crispy on the outside and warmed inside (I did refrigerate for about 1 hour before cooking to set the burgers). Thank you Sara 76 for great recipe and to Averybird for her recommendation, made for I Recommend Tag Game.

This was just what I was looking for. My grandma used to make fish cakes like this! I think she used white fish of some sort. The salmon could not have been easier, as I used the boneless skinless one, and the onion added a lovely sweet crunch to the pattys. I would recomend chilling the patties before dipping and breading to make them easier to handle! Thanks Sara these rock!
