I eat salmon at least twice a week because it’s high in omega 3 fatty acids. This week I decided to switch it up a little bit because I was tired of making it the traditional way. Using leftover salmon from earlier in the week, I decided to make Salmon Cakes. I love Salmon Cakes because they are so quick and easy to make. My local Whole Foods makes some delicious salmon patties that are served on their hot bar. Inspired by their recipe I decided to make my own. This healthy recipe is also kid and man-approved. What’s your favorite quick and easy weeknight dinner dish?
