I love fish cakes, but I rarely make them. I’m always ordering them in restaurants. I’ve made salmon cakes before, but only using canned salmon. The result is usually quite fishy and fishy just doesn’t fly in my house. When I saw this recipe for salmon patties using fresh salmon, I just had to try it. And let me tell you people, I don’t think I can ever go back! These croquettes were crunchy on the outside, full of flavor, and not fishy at all! My husband is the ultimate meat and potatoes kind of guy, and when he saw that I made fish cakes, he kind of rolled his eyes. But then he tasted them. And tasted them again. ZERO fishiness. TONS of flavor. And the sauce was equally delicious! Light, creamy, and lemony.
