Delish recipe, really flavoursome and a nice alternative way to have salmon. I made extra and froze them (prior to cooking), these were just as nice when defrosted and cooked. Served with green beans and brown rice.

These were brilliant. I put a little bit too much paste in as I had less salmon than suggested, which made it slightly soggy but I think had I put a small amount less it would have been perfect. Will definitely be making again! Highly recommended.

I made this recipe for the second time tonight and really enjoyed it again. We don't have a food mixer so I chopped everything as small as possible and grilled as patties. There were a little wet but just turned down the heat and flipped them over to ensure they were cooked. Can't recommend more!

Coated these with panko breadcrumbs and they cooked beautifully. Must make again!

They were too soggy, i wish id used my brain and added some flour or breadcrumbs they were also quite heavy so i doubt that i will cook them again though they tasted amazing

Great fishcakes! So easy to make and very tasty. Added a small amount of flour to firm them up a bit and they held together well when frying.
