My kids don't like fish, but they like these salmon cakes.

These were awful! I actually had to throw the leftovers away because my family would not eat them. The recipe would be good without the capers though. They made the cakes taste like a buttery pickle and are what ruined it for us. I’ll keep this recipe and not include the capers next time and see how it turns out.
