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.
I fixed this for my husband and I for dinner tonight and it made a lovely meal! I really enjoyed the creamed peas for a sauce and will do it that way from now on. I may try the asparagus next time. Thanks BeachGirl!
This was delicious. My toddler ate it and asked for more. I'll definitely cook it again
Made this tonight and WOW was it good! The creamed pea sauce was an excellent topping. I remember my mom making creamed peas years ago when I was a kid and this really took me back! I made 8 smaller patties and I used 1/2 cup instant mashed potato flakes and 1/2 cup ritz crackers. Can't wait to have the left overs tomorrow!! Thanks for posting this.
I make this with leaft over mashed potatoes It is awsome
Very good and inexpensive meal. Like some of the others, I used Ritz crackers instead of the instant potato. I also sauteed some chopped onion and a little green pepper and added to the salmon mixture. The creamed peas were great on both the patties and on the mashed potatoes I served with it. Good Recipe. Thanks
I just came accross my old recipe for salmon patties. I used cracker crumbs instead of instant potatoes, I will try the instant spuds, and we always sprinkled chopped eggs over the white sauce. I will try the peas. I think that baking the salmon in muffin tin is a great idea, doing that and using egg sub takes the fat down to 12 grams. Thank you for reminding me of a great recipe.
I had never heard of eating salmon patties with creamed peas -- I didn't know that it was classic comfort food for a lot of people. I had bought salmon patties at Trader Joe's and needed to use 'em up, so I made this, thinking it would probably be terrible, but at least I would have tried something new .... surprise! It was really yummy! My husband looked extremely skeptical when he sat down to dinner, and had the same surprised reaction I did -- this is really good! We'll definitely make it again. I used fat-free half-and-half instead of milk, and because I had no liquid from the salmon (since I used Trader Joe's salmon patties), I threw in some other spices. Worked out beautifully. Definitely a keeper -- thanks for posting it.
