"Darren is a close friend of ours and has been a chef for over 27 years. He worked in an English pub called "The Pig and Whistle"; this is their recipe for salmon patties. Serve hot with chips and either tomato sauce OR tartar sauce; both are suitable but not together! I make this when I have leftover mashed potatoes OR I make extra for this meal the next day. Cheap and the patties can be made the night before. Recipe can be doubled and tripled. Recipe does NOT include resting time."

"What a different way to make salmon patties. We really enjoyed the taste of the mashed potatoes in the salmon, but did feel it made them a little mushy. They do have a nice flavor. Made for ZWT8."
"These were a great change of pace from my usual "cracker crumb and egg" salmon patties! My 2 year old especially enjoyed them; I think she ate more than me! We liked the texture of the mashed potatoes, it really sort of made these a cross between a fish cake and a potato pancake. I used about 12 ounces fresh cooked salmon, and since leftover mashed potatoes don't exist in my house I boiled and mashed a few. As a result they were unseasoned, and I think if you are going to use unseasoned potatoes there needs to be a bit more spice in the rest of the recipe. I added a fair amount of salt, and think more Worcestershier, some Old Bay or Cajun spices would have been even better. I cut back on the pepper for little tastebuds, using 1/2 t, and that was more than enough to feel the bite and get the flavor. I think 2 t would have been way too much for us. Thanks for posting; we'll be making these again! Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch."
