Calvin's Salmon Cakes-Southern Style

Josey James

There has to be no one in the south that has never had at least one version or other of salmon fritters or cakes. My cousin Calvin has a version that, next to my mama's, my family and I love. According to him the secret to the crispy texture is in the cornmeal. These are great with yellow grits and eggs any style.
