Stuffed Salmon Becomes Cake

We had stuffed salmon over a week ago and there was one lonely salmon left. Nobody around here had the nerve to try it and see if it was any good. Tarnation to the rescue. All I did was mash the salmon and seafood stuffing all together, form patties and fry it in butter. Listed below I found two recipe for salmon cakes that I want to try.
