These cakes are definately Southern, and definately good. I did everything the way you directed, except I added about 2 tsps. fresh lemon juice. I think the lemon gave the salmon a zestier, fresher taste. I will definately be using this delicious recipe again.

This one is a keeper, nice and crispy. I added some lemon juice, and omitted the green pepper (didn't have any). We like spicy, so I used a Habenero pepper sauce, and that gave it a pretty good kick, Made up the patties and refrigerated til time to cook and then coated them with the flour/cornmeal just before frying. I made up a sauce with mayo, grainy horseradish mustard, sour cream, horseradish and a few dashes of cayenne. (Didn't really measure)and it was great. The recipe says it makes six servings, I only got 5 normal sized patties out of it (maybe because I didn't have the green peppers in it?). But even at 6, I figure one person can easily eat two of these! Regardless, these are wonderful!! Thanks for the recipe.

These were fantasic! They got DH's highest rating ("definite do-again"). I didn't have any peppers, so I substituted a a can of Mexi-Corn. Great flavor! And very easy!

great recipe! I added a pinch of salt and I also substituted the parsley for tarragon. I really loved it!

I didn't give any stars to this recipe because I did not want to give a bad review, as other people clearly liked this recipe. But I had a terrible experience with these cakes. I followed the recipe exactly as written and was unable to even form the patties as they just fell apart, so I added another egg and some more breadcrumbs trying to get it to bind. I finally got one semi- formed and got it in the pan but as soon as I lifted it with the spatula to flip it it completely fell apart. I finally gave up and we went out to dinner. I don't know what happened here as it obviously worked for others but I just wanted to share my experience. Thanks anyway :)

these had great classic southern taste, but they fell all to pieces in the frying pan. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used fresh parsley.

Salmon cakes weren't a favorite of mine until I tried your recipe. Thanks Recipe Fairy!
