I am shocked I have not rated this yet because I have been making it for years. I hated salmon patties until this recipe. The onions are key for me. I use panko instead of flour. They are so good. We tend to eat them on buns like a sandwich and we also like them cold--I like a lot of food cold but these are excellent. Thanks Kittencal. You have so...

I prepared this for low carb and not low fat. It was very good and the sauce is like a sophisticated tartar/dill sauce. It was creamy and very good and easy. A keeper for sure. I omitted the cheddar cheese due to reviews and didnt miss it."

These were great! I doubled the all seasonings and I will do even more seasonings next time.
