"Delicious salmon cakes made with potatoes and the added color of red bell pepper and green onion. I came up with the idea for this recipe out of pure laziness. I didn't want to wait for potatoes to boil! It turned out great and definitely became the overall favorite. I enjoy a simple garlic mayonnaise to accompany the cakes but you can pretty much use whatever you desire." — NATHALIE1

Really, really good!!! Similiar to most recipies, this one is flexible so I used 3 eggs. Because I didn't have freshly cooked salmon (which would have been wonderful), I used 3 cans of Sockeye and used some fresh herbs..also I used lemmon pepper..and that made a big difference. What really grabbed my guests...I served this dish with Mango Salsa!!! Wow!
These were absolutely awful. Usually I don't give recipes such a low rating but these weren't even edible. They fell apart no matter what modification I made to them. I fried them as directed, but they turned out entirely too heavy, I then baked them with a little bit of oil- and they were awful. The only thing I can think to do is cook the potatoes before hand to make the cakes a little squishier.
We really liked this one. Following another reviewer's suggestion, I used 2 cans of salmon so it was super easy to prepare and I did not have to get anything special from the grocery store. This is a terrific mid-week meal. I do not have italian seasoning so I used oregano, basil, salt and pepper. I also made a spicy mayonnaise dipping sauce by adding cayenne, salt, pepper and some juice from the capers to some mayo.
Delicious! I left the mushrooms out as one suggested and I used a bag of OreIda shredded potatoes - just thawed and mixed in. I did also add a little lemon pepper - very tasty. My two little ones - age 2 and 5 loved them too. They used ketchup to dip, my husband and I liked the suggested dip of Mayo, cayenne, salt, pepper, and juice from jar of capers. Thanks for sharing this one. I just had some leftover grilled salmon I wanted to use for something different.
This was a great recipe! However I did change a few things around... Instead of the Italian seasoning I used lemon pepper seasoning. I also left out the capers, banana peppers and mushrooms. Instead I used only red pepper, yellow onion and shredded carrot. Served with a little garlic mayo and steamed broccoli! Delicious!
I used canned salmon...wonderfulllllllllll
Excellent salmon recipe!
Left out Italian seasoning, mushrooms, and banana peppers. Used dill to season instead. A little taste of last summer with frozen salmon and garden potato.
