These were a little fussier than other salmon cakes I've made but very good. The garlic cream was excellent. Made for ZWT6.

Made for Zingo of ZWT6 as an appy course & combined w/Zingo Recipe #426074 as the main-course + an encore of Recipe #425179 as the finale, we celebrated the end of the Tour full & content. Icelanders revere potatoes, smoked salmon & cream sauces, so this recipe was made-to-order for us & did not disappoint. Made as written except for the addition of lemon pepper as a pers pref, the recipe yielded 12 perfect generously-sized appy patties that were easily handled & stayed intact. You are right that these are lovely cakes & the garlic cream sauce is a must. The combo is great, will be remembered as among our favourite ZWT6 tries & is certain to be shared w/our family & friends. Thx for posting this recipe for us & making the Tour even more memorable. :-)

For us these were just ok. I had some lovely smoked salmon from Portlock Salmon here in Seattle, and I felt it totally got lost in the potato. Overall I thought it need more seasoning, I added pepper but waited to add salt until I cooked them not knowing how salty the salmon would be; we did end up adding a little but maybe some dill or old bay would be good too. The garlic cream was a bit heavy for me, I also thought it needed a little pizzaz so I added extra lemon and a fresh garlic clove. Made for ZWT 6 ZINGO by one of the Unrulies Under the Influence.
