Salmon Fish Cakes Recipe From tashas

The Key Is More Fish Than Potatoes For These Famous Salmon Fish Cakes

These fishcakes are an iconic tashas menu item. They're so popular that people have been begging for the recipe since we first opened. This was the one recipe we knew for certain we had to include in the book. We use tinned salmon instead of tuna and more fish than potato for our fish cakes. They are lovely served plated or as part of a summer salad buffet.
