3. Salmon Cakes



Say goodbye to crab cakes and hello to these flavorful salmon patties, made from a can of store-bought salmon. Serve atop a bed of sautéed spinach with a dollop of spicy mayonnaise for a sophisticated meal. Got a less formal crowd? Sandwich your cake between two slices of bread for a healthy spin on a burger.
