    Absolutely delicious! I added the rind from the whole lemon so it had a beautifully strong lemon taste. I used tuna instead of salmon. I loved this recipe because I didn’t need to use the grater/food processor - I have weaker wrists so grating hard vegetables can be quite tiring. I’ll definitely make this recipe again.

    Great recipe! Tweaked it a bit by adding in some chili paste, lime juice, ginger, and corn in lieu of capsicum. Worked great!

    Very, very tasty, fell apart a little in frying perhaps due to size i.e.I made 7 instead of ten. Will definitely go again but with smaller patties. Yoghurt as a side, with seasonal asparagus was delicious. Majella, Ocean Grove. Vic
