  12. They look perfect Raymund! And even Mr Chippy likes salmon in risoles (potato cakes).

  13. Oh yes, crispy salmon cakes! Better than chicken patties! I’m sure my kids will wolf these down in a minute!

    I love crab cakes but I hate the thin bones/cartileges(?) that sometimes come with it, so this salmon cake is a better alternative for me since I love fish cakes, too. 🙂

    So simple but it looks so delicious. Do you ever make a sauce for it or just serve it with lemon?

  17. These would be so moor-ish. You can’t just stop at one !
