Delicious and so much healthier than potato packed fishcakes. I used green Thai curry paste because that's what I had but otherwise followed the recipe and it was very successful.

My family love these and they're so quick and easy to make. I use green curry paste because I prefer it and have added spring onion as others have suggested. Yummy !

This was really tasty! A couple of things - I added spring onion and garlic, and some chilli flakes to give it a spicier kick. I thought I'd need some flour to hold together but wasn't needed. I halved the ingredients for 2 people, but we could have eaten more so would next time do the full amount. Recommended!

Delicious - I'm not a great salmon person as I usually find it rather bland but these have a fantastic flavour - will definitely be making these again

I have made this recipe many times and it has alway been delicious. It is quick, healthy and really tasty. It's remarkable how the salmon manages to hold together with no binding agent. A highly recommended recipe

Extremely tasty and healthy burgers that are very simple to make. These will become a regular dish in our house. I also served them with rice & soy sauce!

Got a bit messy making these, but well worth it. Served them with rice and salad. Found it a much more interesting way to enjoy salmon. Boyfriend loved them too. Will be a regular in our house.

This has become a huge favourite between my partner and I! We have these at least once a week. I add spring onions to the salmon burger and garlic - this makes it extra scrummy!! We usually serve ours with sweet potato wedges dusted with smoked paprika, cumin and salt and pepper!
