This is one of the recipes that looks like it has too many ingredients but in reality is simple to get together. The ingredients are nothing you’ve never heard of and marry together for a great texture and flavor combination!

Salmon is such a great way to change up your protein source and can be made so many ways. Fresh is certainly my preferred choice when using salmon, but the frozen fillets or even canned salmon can make a really easy and delicious dinner.

I love these Baked Salmon Cakes with the pieces of onion and yellow pepper mixed in the hearty patty. It’s a very filling bariatric meal!
