i made these tonight, i am from florida so i love sea food and made these with Manhattan clam chowder soup, they were good. i think i made them a little too thin but i did everything the recipe says except no parsley, i added the veggies in raw like the one person suggested and added one tablespoon mayo like another suggested. unfortunately i only had butter and no olive oil tonight so thats what i seared the bottoms of the cakes with in the pan. olive oil would have been much better and then when it says to flip them over onto the baking sheet i didn't understand if they meant the side already seared in the pan or the raw side up so i did half and half and the half that i had already cooked faced down didn't stick so that was a plus. i think an addition of some olive oil and salt right into the mix would be good. but all the bread crumbs were needed to make it all stick together. so anyways all in all they were really good healthy home made salmon cakes.
