READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bunsby

Another recipe from my mother's collection. Good for children who don't really like fish. Goes well with rice.

I used Carr's table crackers instead of the soda crackers but didn't have enough of them for two cans worth of salmon so I added flour into the salmon mix. I also added a little worcestershire sauce, finely minced onions and celery. I dredged in breadcrumbs, let chill for an hour so that the cakes would hold well. I first baked at 375F for 15 minutes and then browned the sides in hot olive oil for a better presentation.
