Salmon Cakes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

These salmon cakes are delicious as a light lunch or dinner and can also be served as appetizers. This is from an advertisement for Chicken of the Sea salmon. I have also made this with canned chicken instead of salmon with great results.

This is a very nice salmon pattie. I made a couple of minor changes to suit my tastes. I subbed white onions for the green & sauteed them briefly with the red pepper. I also added the zest of half a lemon. This recipe goes together very easily & has a real nice flavor (I highly recommend the zest for a stronger lemon flavor).
