Salmon Cakes and Tzatziki Sauce

Salmon Cakes & Tzatziki Sauce
Salmon season is once again upon us and it’s time to make delicious Salmon Cakes. I saw the recipe on userealbutter, and because the list of ways to use salmon was exhausted, I decided to give it a try. What I love about this recipe is the fact that Salmon Cakes come out very moist on the inside with tons of flavor.

Salmon Cakes & Tsa-Tsiki Sauce

When I fillet the fish, usually there’s some fish meat still left on the bones, so I take a teaspoon and scrape the leftover fish off the bones. Guess what I do with those fish scraps? You got it! Salmon cakes!

    Could this also be done using canned salmon? Salmon is a tad expensive in these parts!
