Salmon Cakes for the one you LOVE!

The gorgeous salmon cake takes the spotlight.  This is the dish you pull out when you simply want to show someone you love them.  Packed with omega 3s, and one of the tastiest little cakes known to man.  This cake also works well as an apology.  Oh let me count the ways to express my heartfelt sentiments.  Place a top a salad for a heart healthy meal, or gobble them down fresh out of the pan.  My honey bunny likes me to make him french fries on the side.  Either way…. it’s all going to be a great meal. Cheers to your love with salmon cakes.

  7. Oh yum! I made something very similar with Chef Oropeza and it was so delicious. He used canned tuna, but I love the idea of using FRESH salmon. Great idea! I’ll be making very soon! My mind is racing with inspiration. And now my tummy is growling 😉
