This was very good. Made a few changes only because I did not have some of the ingredients on hand - apologies to the Chef! Used cooked fresh salmon I had leftover instead of the canned. Did not have the wheat germ, so I crushed up some Ritz crackers instead. Other than that, followed the recipe to the 't'. I served it with the Creamy Dill Dipping Sauce also on this site. Elegant and easy, thank you! Read More

I had high hopes for this recipe but was somewhat disappointed. This turned out rather bland. I thought it needed some salt and pepper for seasoning and I'm not usually one to add much salt in my cooking. I was also hoping for more of the salmon taste but thought the celery and onion over powered the salmon flavor. Read More

Mom and Dad asked me to cook dinner, and they wanted Salmon Patties. I found this recipe here, and tried it out instead. Next time I'm doubling the recipe, because I barely had enough to serve everyone kept swiping them off the plate as soon as they came out of the skillet! I substituted wheat germ as the coating for "fry mix" Cracker Meal, and used extra virgin olive oil over a very low heat toasting them. I'll definately be making this again! Read More

This recipe was delicious. I didn't use the wheat germ or the dill weed and it was still good. Read More

I changed a few things, I added mayo (like a tablespoon, and a tablespoon of sour cream, and added minced onion and breadcrumbs) Instead of frying them I put them in cupcake pan and baked them like that and it was fabulous. I baked them on 350 degrees for 45 min. or until they get brown. I used all the other ingredience along with mine and don't forget the hot sauce if you like it hot! just a little. yummmmy Read More

Very Good! I had to make some changes according to what I had on hand. I used chopped vidalia onion and rolled the croquettes in bread crumbs instead of wheat germ. I added some furikaki (a japanese rice seasoning) which made it very tasty and served with sticky rice and a green salad. Great recipe! We all loved it! Read More

Oh my goodness! Yum! Super easy, versatile recipe! My 8 yr old girl made it, with my supervision (and I chopped LOL) because she wanted to try salmon in a packet. We also added a drained can of Albacore chunk tuna, since the one packet of salmon just didnt seem like it would make enough as a light lunch for my girl, son, and I. It made 12-14 golf ball shapes of varying size, and she rolled them in crushed Ritz cracker-with-a-bit-of-cornmeal coating (appx 1/4 c cornmeal, 15 crackers) in lieu of wheat germ. I didnt add dill, though I'm sure that would have been amazing - just didn't have any. Instead, we threw in a couple shakes of Mrs Dash Zesty - like a Cajun seasoning. I also just diced up one celery stick and picked off a long green onion from my window plant - so we probably used over a 1/4 cup for each. Both kids (ages 8, 6) LOVED it. They dipped in cold Ranch dressing. My girl said, "These salmon crock-ettes change my mood!" She still cant remember how to say "croquette" LOL Definitely a keeper recipe! Read More
