    This was delicious - I grew up with my Great-Grandmother's salmon croquettes and these really took me back.
    Made mine using 4MSDEE's suggestion of baking (thank you for the degree/times!) and they ended up a little bit on the dry side - probably just my oven.
    Still wonderful! Will fix again.

  • They brought back memories of my Mother's salmon patties. I almost forgot to add the cayenne pepper because it was not listed in the directions. - 12/3/13

  • Delicious and easy -- great combination!! Some of us in my family found it a bit too spicy, so I'll reduce the cayenne to 1/8 tsp next time, and maybe substitute a tablespoon of Dijon mustard for one of the tablespoons of mayo. - 9/27/11

  • I experiment with new salmon patty recipes almost every week, and this is WOW!!! It is "heavy" enough that it takes care of any fried food cravings I have. My husband and both of my kids (ages 2 and 5) loved them as well! - 2/21/11
