How To Make Fresh Salmon Cakes

Bored of having the same old meat cake? Why not switch things up by using minced fish instead of ground meat? It would give your dish a whole new spin that’s equally delicious! Not to mention, fish is packed with healthy fatty acids. So if you’ve got some in your freezer, you can try whipping up either of these easy fish cake recipes. Stir the flakes together with classic spice blends, or explore flavors from different cuisines. You’ll have plenty of options to choose from!
