These Salmon Rissoles are a good standby when unexpected visitors drop by around about dinner time as most of us have a can of slamon in our pantries.

My husband suggested I make something different this Friday, so followed the recipe as written. The texture was lovely, crisy outside and tender inside, but I thought the flavor was a little bland. I will make it again, but I think I'll add a little dijon mustard to the mix for a little zip. It was a nice balance with the roasted garlic mashed potatoes and salad
