Recipe Review : Salmon Patties - QFITT p.132
« on: January 14, 2012, 11:32:18 am »
Oh my goodness --- the best recipe from this book for me so far.  Delectable!

Simple, clear, concise recipe.  To die for taste!  Classy serving suggestion which I ignored as I was too tempted by the patties.  

I have to admit to a tweak as I only had a 200g of salmon so I added a 170g can of crab to make up the difference as I used to make a tasty crab and salmon dip in my youth.  I will definitely be coming back to this recipe when I *do* have the exact ingredients but for tea tonight I was more than happy with the compromise version.  

The subtle little additions of sour cream, mustard, paprika and fresh herbs (I used coriander) were so lovely.

You would never think while eating that the seafood was tinned.  Just wonderful  Don't delay.  If you have Alyce's book, try this one and see if you too give it 5/5.

Thanks Cecilia, great review!

I love the idea of using half crab meat - I hadn't thought of that but sounds like a fantastic variation!

these were absolutely delightful. makes a quick light meal, and the sour cream and sweet chilli sauce are an absolute must in my eyes. I'd give them a 5/5 too

Placing Kezza's review here with the others.

Made these tonight for dinner and they were very nice.  I doubled the recipe and all okay to do this. However, when blitzing the rice which is the first step, I was wondering if 3 minutes on speed 9 was too much for the rice.  I actually put double the amount in, and it definitely did not need 3 minutes. I think I stopped the machine after 1 1/2 minutes and the bowl was really hot.  Not sure if this was misprint or not.

I noticed that the jug was warm too when I was putting the rice flour aside. The temp read 37o

Great to hear the feedback! It does seem like a long time I know, but from experience if you do not do it long enough the pattie has a sandy and gritty texture which is horrible! So I always do it a little bit longer than you think it needs - 3 minutes ensures a great texture :)

Thanks Alyce.  I'll just keep an eye on it.  My patties were fine, not gritty at all and believe it or not, my DS who does not like anything 'fishy' and turned his nose up when I told him what was for dinner, ate more of them than the rest of us and has just polished off the last one leftover from last night :-))

Don't you just love it when that happens! My dad was convinced he didn't like corn until he had the corn, pancetta and chives dish.

Great to hear the family enjoyed them kezza :)

Really enjoyed these!



Loved there was no potato in these, and really delish served with lettuce, sour cream and sweet chilli sauce as Alyce suggests.

We had these the other night (for the second time now) and they are a hit for sure.

I too love that there is no potato in them!

Great summer food with a salad for this house, get a bit sick of the meat and salad in summer so they were a fantastic change.

On a side note, if you need to make a double batch (as I do  :-))) make sure that you do the batches one after the other. It is takes too much processing if you do it all in one batch and you over process the whole mix. Just as quick to make 2 batches and if you mill the rice in 2 batches one after the other you won't need to wash the bowl in-between  ;)

Made these last night- Delicious Delicious! I think they will become a regular feature in my home- GREAT way to get more fish into the diet!

Held together well when cooking, not too fishy, lovely and light with the rice flour. :)
