I didn't actually roll it in crumbs though. That might help it crust up.
Definitely adding more crumbs and egg next time though.

Semolina makes a sturdy crust.

I think it still would need firmed up, GF. I really think extra bread crumbs is the key, something to absorb the moisture.
If you have the stuff though, give it a try and let us know.

hmmm... maybe those would work without soaking... maybe they would help absorb the moister from the salmon as they reconstitute.
You have given me an idea, for good or for bad ;^)

Yes I think they would help with the moisture problem.

TVP would help as well, but would need to be used sparingly to avoid altering the flavor of your fattie. Other, fairly neutral binders include qinoa, farina, steel cut oats, barley, raw egg, and cracker crumbs. I like using farina as a binder because it is so bland and doesn't change the flavor of the food very much.

TVP takes on the texture of the fat granules in breakfast sausage, and also absorbs flavor from what it's cooked with. But it does add an unpleasant flavor if too much is used.

Hope this helps.

It will help if you tell me what TVP is (stands for)
