These are yummy little morsels combining ingredients I had on hand with some red pepper we picked up at a farmer's market today. The binding was a bit of a challenge, but if you don't need an elegant dinner, who cares if they break apart? In the past, when I made these, they were mistaken for salmon patties. I think that's pretty cool...isn't salmon more expensive? You can experiment with your own blend of spices and herbs, but avoid tarragon. It makes the patties taste bitter. Kids like these, and they're attractive next to some buttered corn. Enjoy!
