We brought some frozen King Salmon tail pieces from home that we had purchased in Wheeling WV at $7/lb. and there was a unanimous decision to turn it into salmon cakes (salmon patties in my family) using the recipe from our previous batch. Wow, how time flies as it had been July, 2011 when last we made them and I had saved the same Ina Garten recipe twice from fellow bloggers who had made them since then.
After weighing the salmon and discovering we had two pounds, we decided to cook it all, eat half and use the other half for the cakes in a day or two. Since we had some blackening seasoning with us, we used it for the first meal along with some salad - note the watermelon radish.
Just as last time, they were very good and since we didn’t have sauce ingredients, we ate them unadorned .
And for breakfast the next day, it was a toasted English muffin, the cakes reheated in the micro wave topped with baby Swiss cheese, and poached eggs.
These were fantastic and almost inspired me to whip up some Hollandaise for the next morning.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
