Recipe by Helping Hands

My husband and I like the idea of eating fish at least once per week, but, the problem is, we don't particulary care for fish (except for shell-fish). Imagine my surprise, then, when I came home from work, one night this week, and my husband had these waiting for me. This is a continuation of our attempts to experiment with fish recipes, that sort of disguise the taste of fish. And, this one was a lovely surprise, to both of us! We really enjoyed these salmon cakes, so I decided to share the recipe (for other non-fish lovers, and fish-lovers, alike). This is a low carb dish; thus, the pork rinds, instead of breadcrumbs (you can substitute breadcrumbs, if you prefer; however, the spicy pork rinds are what gives it a bit of a spicy bite). Please note that the prep/cooking does not include the one hour marinating time. Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
