This is actually something I created a true original for me. My family loves these salmon cakes, they eat them hot or cold. I like to pair them with black beans and corn and Jasmine rice.

  3. Form mixture into palm-sized, 1/2 inch thick, round patties (8-9)
  4. Heat olive oil and butter in a large, non-stick (or iron) skillet until butter is melted and slightly sizzling. Gently place patties into hot grease and fry until light brown and slightly crispy, on each side. When done, remove to paper towel and drain grease (fry in 2 batches).
