I have made salmon patties all my life, but I have never tried making them with this twist before. Who knew that potato chips would be the star of the show. We really liked the flavor of these Wild Alaskan pink salmon patties. We just kept eating them, but managed to save a couple for fish sandwiches the next day. My tartar recipe link is in the list of ingredients. Enjoy!
