Salmon Cakes

These salmon cakes can be served as is, with some tartar sauce but if you were me, you wouldn’t want any sauce to divert you from the taste of these delicious fish cakes! The lemon slices get rid of the fishy smell and the lemon juice makes the fish even juicier. They are so delicate and yet bold with flavor. With the leftovers, I use them next day to make fish wraps with some fresh greens in a spinach tortilla roll with a spicy mayo dressing. Scrumptious! @sarchakra
