Fresh Salmon Cakes

I really do love a fish cake/pattie and I particularly love a tuna/salmon pattie (using tin fish) but my husband does not like the tin stuff!  We are big salmon fans so wanted to make something that still honoured the salmon, tasted awesome and was also moist to eat.  This recipe was absolutely superb!  I was worried when I put it on the plate and I didn't have anything to dip it into, momentary panic of thinking it needed a dipping sauce .... it doesn't!  An absolute joy to eat and with no left overs I'm thinking the family loved it too.  Hope you enjoy.  Eb x
