"My kids do not like anything fishy. I snuck this one by them and they loved it. I serve them as snacks, sandwiches, or as dinner with rice and a veggie on the side. Personally I like to dip them in horseradish and snack away!! Hope you like them."

I love this recipe! What a great switch from the old boring way of making salmon patties! Here's where I am confused... it seems so many allrecipes fans don't actually "rate" the recipe as submitted but instead, totally rewrite the whole recipe to suit themselves and then give themseles four or five stars. Is this how it's done? I thought we were to rate a recipe based on the ingredients listed and not a "new" recipe that's been tweaked to death until it's nothing like the original recipe!

These were okay, but I'm not going to use this recipe again.

These were delicious and fun to make. I used this as a base and tweaked the recipe heavily to my liking. I baked some fresh salmon and shredded it instead of using the canned salmon. Mixed in 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs, eggs and 2 sliced green onions instead of regular onion. Added 1 tbsp each of dijon and lemon juice and a few dashes of hot pepper sauce and salted to taste. Also added about 1/2 cup of shredded hash browns. No celery seed or dill. Formed patties with wet hands and dipped in more panko before frying in olive oil. Served with a lemon caper sauce from another cooking website (1 cup mayo, 1/4 cup each chopped chives and Italian parsley, 2 tbsp each minced shallot and lemon juice, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce and 2 tbsp minced capers). It definitely needs a sauce with it. Next time I will try a dill sauce. They were not dry at all-I had to turn them gingerly in the pan because they were so moist. An interesting way to cook salmon. I uploaded my photo of the recipe. Yummy!Thank you!

These were great and we liked them better than the recipe I've been using for several years. I doubled the recipe and per other reviewers' recommendations, I sprinkled in some shredded cheddar cheese. Because it was a little dry, I added some milk. Because we try to avoid fried foods, I used a 1/4 cup and scooped them into muffin tins that had been shot with a quick spray of oil. I baked them at 350º for about 40 mins. I served them with lemon sauce from this site. Fantastic recipe, Joy!

Great patties! The only change I made was baking them on a baking sheet (10 minutes for each side) instead of frying them. I had never used celery salt for anything else than tomato juice and cubed appetizer cheese: huge mistake! It really adds an interesting flavor to the mix.

These were delicious! I used real mashed potatoes (with no butter or milk)instead of the flakes. They were not a bit dry. Will definitely make time and time again.

Very good recipe! I actually doubled the recipe, took out all the bones & skin after draining the cans of salmon. I used fresh dill, ritz cracker crumbs, a little old bay seasoning, green onions (only 3 chopped up finely) and I didn't have any potato flakes, so I threw in a couple of handfulls of frozen hash browns, and made large patties (hamburger sized). I fried them in canola oil in my electric skillet until they were good & brown & crispy. They were just delicious! These are great on a hamburger bun with mayo, tomato & lettuce, and I even ate a few of the leftovers for lunch today just with some cucumber ranch dressing and no hamburger bun! Just as good leftover, but not as crispy after warming in the microwave, but just as tastey! Thanks for a great recipe!

My family and I LOVED these patties! I made a few adjustments according to other reviews - fresh celery, an 1/8 c. sharp cheddar, plain bread crumbs with Mrs. Dash and a splash of lemon juice - wow, they tasted sooo yummy. Not fishy at all and flaked while it melted in our mouths. There's nothing overpowering about this recipe, all ingredients blend very nicely together. Thanks, it's a keeper!!!
