Growing up my Mother made wonderful Salmon Patties and always served them with fried potatoes and creamed peas on the side. I remember her base recipe, though it wasn't written, and have used it to come up with my own version. This recipe has been a work in process, for many years, as Salmon Patties, which can be boring and bland, can be spectacular if treated correctly. I think I finally came up with the right combination of ingredients, that are not only full of flavor, but will fry up crispy and golden every time. I hope you enjoy this classic as much as I do.
