Recipe by KitchenManiac
A excellent fish cake, very similar to the prawn cake I have posted, but of course not as high in cholestrol. You can also try grilling it..if you are concerned about adding on the pounds. Still taste good. I have also tried making them bigger, so that they are like a salmon pattie, and eating it as a burger. YUMMY! If you want to add a little heat to the cake, chop up some spicy hot red chilli and add it to the salmon mixture. From Donna Hay's Cookbook titled "flavours"

Yummy is the word. I made these burger sized, and got 5, even though I was a bit skimpy with the salmon. I did use a whole egg as I never know what to do with an orphan egg part. The kaffir lime adds a lovely fragrant, floral quality to the patties. I used wasabi from a tube, and that was a mistake as it practically disappeared in the cooking. I served a little on the side and it went wonderfully well with the kaffir lime and ginger flavours. As patties, they took 3 or 4 minutes to cook on each side. These would be excellent with pickled ginger.
