Salmon Potato Cakes

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Olha7397

This recipe combines two of my favorite foods--potatoes and salmon. To make same day preparation easier, cook the salmon and potatoes the day before. This is a "wow" brunch dish. Gracious Country Inns & Favorite Recipes.

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!!!
