2Shape 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..
