It's funny how certain meals you dreaded as a kid, somehow turn into the ones you kind of really miss. So it is with Salmon Cakes, or salmon patties as they were known around our house. I never much cared for them except that my mom always served them with homemade macaroni and cheese that was so cheesy, gooey and delicious that it made up for anything lackluster in the salmon patties.
Besides, canned salmon is chock full of omega-2 fatty acids and, aesthetics aside, the taste is great. You will need to pick through the meat to remove skin and bones but it's not a big deal.
Then just heat another tablespoon of vegetable oil in a skillet on medium and cook cakes until nice and golden, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
