The flavor in these is very good and deserving of more stars. The nutmeg, mace, & dill combo really worked and gave salmon patties a new spark. That said, I had problems with the recipe. The mixture was soft, hard to form and coat with the breadcrumbs. I also found that the butter listed was far from enough to pan fry the patties. The fresh breadcrumbs soaked it up very quickly and I had to add oil. The patties completely fell apart during cooking. They tasted good though. =) I will play with this one again. Thank you Olga!!!
