  2. Shape salmon mix into 4 patties each about 3/4 inch thick place on a plate, spread remaining crumbs in a shallow dish....Heat a non_stick skillet over medium heat, brush the pan with a thin layer of butter andwork with 2 cakes at a time, dip cakes into crumbs and fry them 3 to 4 minutes each side until golden brown and hot in centre..brush skillet with remaining butter and cook the other 2 cakes the same..
  3. In a bowl toss the greens with half the horseradish cream and arrange on to 4 serving plates top with cake and drizzle remaining cream over top and scatter tomatoes onto greens and cake. I sometimes sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over top as well.
