Salmon Cakes

Whether you call them salmon patties , salmon croquettes, or salmon cakes -the facts are simple , they are simply delicious. I went with the Salmon cakes name because my recipe has similar ingredients that you would find in a crab cake. This salmon cake can be served with grits and eggs for a southern breakfast or with a meal prep next to a veggie and starch. I love making them with grits and topping them with my Tomato Scallion Cream Sauce …simply delicious! As usual, enjoy and let me know how it turned out for you . I’m always just a DM or email away!
