:-very nice and easy-15 Aug 2011


The first time I cooked this recipe, I found it decent but a little bland. On second time I substituted a pound of fresh salmon, poached, for the canned and threw 2 tsps "Old Bay Seasoning" (available in most grocery stores) in the mixture, and found that this worked wonders!-14 Jan 2002

I found the original recipe a little bland and dry, but the ideas this recipe spawned lead me to this.I substituted fresh salmon that I pulsed in the food processor; (to form small chunks) used fresh bread crumbs along with a couple of tsps of Old Bay.The cakes I made were thin,(like 6 oz hamburger patties) so the salmon would cook before they browned too much.I cooked them using half butter and oil.It imparts a little better flavor then oil alone.They were extremely moist!!!I've used two sauces: first, I tried a dill flavored Hollandaise.Quite nice.Next, I made a Brown Butter and found the nutty flavor worked great.-31 Oct 2007
