Salmon Cake

Salmon cake

I always love to sneak salmon into my diet because it is rich in nutrients (espescially Omega – 3 fatty acids) that keep skin and hair nourished. Come on, who  wouldn’t want the flawless skin and perfect hair we see on supermodels?  We can grill, bake or pan-fry salmon, but are you after a delicious salmon recipe? Try out this spicy salmon cake, it’s absolutely mouthwatering and I am sure you are going to fall in love with it, instantly.
