Wow! I really loved the sauce on these! We used canned peas and didn't have dill so I substituted sage, lemon pepper and a little parsley flakes...just yummy! Also, I used 3/4 pack of saltine crackers instead of instant mashed potatoes..that got them too dry so I had to add an egg. No bother, they still turned out great! Thanks for posting and what a great idea for a sauce for the salmon patties. Definately makes "country food" seem like gourmet.
