Recipe: Herbed Salmon Cakes with Tartar Sauce

These tasty, healthy salmon cakes are full of clean, lean protein and omega-3s with a multitude of health benefits. You can easily swap out the salmon for fresh tuna and get just as spectacular results for both your tastebuds and the rest of your body.

Be sure to choose wild-caught salmon to avoid the awful dietary and environmental impact of farmed salmon. I get mine delivered to my door from Vital Choice Seafood – incredible quality plus complete convenience is a winner every time!

Herbed Salmon Cakes with Tartar Sauce is a part of our Holiday Party menu, joined by more tasty, healthy dishes perfect for your next shindig: Smoked Paprika and Cayenne Roasted Almonds; Virgin Stuffed Mushrooms; Roasted Artichoke Dip; and Champagne Twist Cocktail.
