Old Fashioned Salmon Patties

Old Fashioned Salmon Patties

When I first traveled to Indiana to visit my husband’s parents for the very first time, everyone told me they loved my mother-in-law’s (Chris’s) salmon patties. Especially my father-in-law! They were his favorite. She also had a SHRIMP DIP recipe that people insisted she make and bring to any party. If she didn’t bring that dip to every baptism, christening, wedding, potluck, first holy communion or bowling league night, people were seriously disappointed!
