“Quick easy recipe to make after a hard day's work. For the mashed potatoes use plain cooked potatoes mashed with no added ingredients. Just cook extra potatoes the night before and take out what you will need for this recipe. If you want a little spice add 1/2 tsp hot pepper flakes I like a bit of Tartar sauce and a green salad along side or a couple of steamed vegetables. Great summer dish. This recipe goes a long way from one small can of salmon. I would like to stress use leftover cooked potatoes not left over mashed potatoes that already have got a lot of extra ingredients in them!”
6 cakes
