    On a side note, this recipe could easily be adapted to a salmon loaf - a bit easier than shaping a frying many patties. Just pat the ingredients into a loaf shape in a pan with edges and bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes. - 1/13/09

    You don't really need to remove the skin and bones; they add calcium. Just use a fork to mash them up really good. You will never know they are there! - 1/8/09

    You can also make these under the broiler like I do. Just spray each side with a bit of cooking spray, I like the butter cooking spray, and broil for about 5 mins per side. Maybe a few moments longer depending on your oven. Great recipe - 1/24/09

    If you don't like chopping the vegies, I get Pic Sweet Seasoning mix in the frozen food section usually about 99 cents for a 10 oz bag. That way I have it on hand and don't have to worry about the vegies going bad if I don't get around to using them all. - 1/16/09

    I substituted tuna (didn't have salmon) and did this low-carb style with low carb breadcrumbs. Excellent recipe that got seconds from my husband. It's easy and fast. Note that there wasn't enough egg to bind, so I needed to add more eggs and the patties are fragile, so be careful flipping them. - 2/3/09

    Great recipe! We started cooking up our patties on the gas grill if it's not too cold (under 15degrees around here!)-- it makes them even ligher in fat, and tastes great! - 1/23/09

    Reply from JANEINE (1/23/09)
    The grill sounds good. I use a George Foreman Griddle. You might also like to try it with fresh salmon. I always use any leftover for them when I serve the fresh filets. I just remove the skin and flake it then add the other ingredients. I also sometimes use dill and other spices. enjoy

  • I loved this recipe and plan on making it regularly for lunches with both salmon and tuna. By the way, I use 2 5 oz. cans of boneless pink salmon and Italian seasoned bread crumbs, which yields 4 hearty patties at about 150 calories each.

  • My husband and I both agree this recipe was a 4 star recipe. I would make this again. I didn't us the green pepper, celery or onion but it was really good and easy! I am not sure how much is a serving. How do you figure that out? - 6/30/11

  • I love salmon, so I fixed these for dinner last night and they were wonderful! The only thing different that I added was about 1/8 tsp. of black pepper. - 6/20/11

  • I had a 6oz can, so used half crumbs and seasonings, full egg and celery stalk, added one glove garlic, a few shakes of onion powder, and left out the green pepper. I was really surprised how tasty it came out, and this will definitely be used again. I'll add shredded carrot next time. Yum! - 6/13/11
