Convenient frozen hash browns and flaked salmon come together for a twist on this traditional Swiss favorite. We love the creamy dill sauce, but a dollop of ketchup is tasty too. Serve with: Steamed green beans tossed with sliced scallions, Dijon mustard and lemon juice.

" So easy to put together and another great reason to keep canned salmon in the pantry and hashbrowns in the freezer. This recipe worked perfectly for my family. They didn't fall apart, nor were the onions crunchy. I love a tzatziki...

The first time I tried this recipe I was was overwhelmed by the, taste of salt. I tried it again with fresh salmon and omitted the capers! This worked. They have a crispy crust and tender center. Thanx for sharing!raf


Used shredded fresh potato that I very lightly salted then microwaved ~ 2 minutes, they came out slightly sticky which helped them stay together while cooking. Very tasty!


fell apart completely, each time. stuck to the pan even with more oil added. I'm sure the flavor would have been nice, but this recipe does not hold together well at all. Very disappointed.

agreed. Very frustrating

Easy but Bland

My husband made these, and he wasn't sure whether to thaw the potatoes first. I think he used them semi-thawed. The resulting patties needed at least twice the salt called for, more oil, maybe a bit more pepper, and about four times the amount of sauce.

Work with it!

Love this recipe. The flavors are well put together: fish, potatoe, onion, dill. Sauce a nice complement. Cake crumbled apart while pan cooking, so I put each cake into a muffin tin and baked for 15 minutes: Perfect for me, a bit crisp on the outside, cooked on the inside. This is a healthy keeper.

I enjoyed the flavor, well balanced fish and potatoe.
