Mini Salmon Cakes

I love to make these for breakfast or lunch. For my boyfriend they remind him of a similar recipe his grandma Dottie used to make and he always mentions that when he smells them cooking! I eat these plain with a bit of organic ketchup and a pickle or two. They are also good served on a salad or with some grits or polenta. The photography does not do these justice. They are very yummy and filling little bites. They are also high in protein and calcium. Plus!
