"My daughter and I love salmon patties, and we found this version that is healthier than salmon patties made with mayo. Everyone I've made this for has asked for the recipe. I would love to hear any improvements and/or variations you make to this simple recipe. Enjoy!" — tinalyn

I made this for dinner tonight. Usually, my husband doesn't like my salmon patties, but tonight he ate two and put away two for his lunch. I tripled the recipe because I had a 14 oz can of salmon. I didn't change anything else. I did make the dill sauce about 5 hours ahead of time so the flavors could mix well and that seemed to work out fine. I would make these again.
I make salmon patties quite often and don't use a recipe. I followed this to the letter except for adding a little chopped red bell pepper which I had on hand. The ingredients are pretty much the same as I typically use, and I never use mayo. I found the breadcrumbs overpowered the salmon flavor, and I use a very high quality canned salmon. I would use fewer breadcrumbs, just enough to hold the patties together. I mixed up the sour cream-dill sauce, tasted it, and thought it was fairly bland, so I added a little seasoned salt and some lemon zest. Don't really mean to knock this recipe because we did enjoy it but, honestly, didn't find it to be anything out of the ordinary, pretty much the same as I've been making for years.
I love this recipe. It is perfect for the small can of salmon. I used crushed garlic bagel chips instead of the crackers for more flavor. The dill dip is wonderful also. I got 4 small patties with this recipe. A perfect meal for two people along with cream potatoes and green peas. Yum Yum....This is a keeper..
Great recipe. I followed the suggestion to cut back on the breadcrumbs (used Panko). Good flavor, quick, healthy meal and my husband loved them! Thank you!
