This was my mom's recipe (Trixie was my dad's nickname for her; sure to get a reaction!). It's quick, easy, inexpensive, and true comfort food. Be sure to serve with homemade mashed potatoes to get the full effect.

I make this recipe regularly for my family as did my mom. It's delicious and the creamed peas are a must!! I did make one change in that I don't like as many crackers in the mix...makes it a bit harder to form the pattie. I used 2 15 oz cans of salmon and one tube of crackers. Otherwise, all is the same. My 10 yo daughter was in heaven. :-) Pam

Made these for supper tonite & they were pretty good. However, IDK how you get 8 patties out of this...I got 6. I also think it could use a little more seasoning, but then that's probably just me. <br/>I love peas...especially creamed peas....think next time I'll add a little chopped onion. <br/>THANKS for sharing!!!

Fantastic recipe! I did leave out the poultry seasoning and used about 1 Tbs of chopped green bell pepper. I also rolled my patties in flour before frying. Turned out great! The peas was wonderful too. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
