    Altered ingredient amounts. Use two tins of salmon instead of one. Add garlic. Also add onions and green peppers. I make a sauce with mayo, lime juice & dill for dipping. Like I said, these come out consistently fantastic.  -  07 Aug 2008


    Something else. I made a dipping sauce to go with it: 2 tbsp light mayo, 1 tbsp lemon juice, pinch of basil.  -  07 Aug 2008


    Yum is all I can say! I love these and they are a regular in my house, especially useful when you have a boyfriend who likes to do the messy bit! Lovely flavours, I use a bit less bread in the form of grated wholemeal pitta but that's the only change, lovely with watercress and sweet chilli dipping sauce in a pitta, wrap or in a lettuce leaf! We make larger patties, burger sized which take a bit longer to cook but they are delicious the next day in a wrap or on top of a salad. Thanks!!!  -  22 Nov 2011
