If dinner's not ready yet and your guests are starting to get hungry, then serve these quick and easy salmon cakes as a starter.
Add the salmon, cracker crumbs, egg, onion or shallot, milk and lemon juice. Mix thoroughly and shape into 4 patties.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat.
Cooke the salmon patties on both sides until golden brown and cooked through.
Use care when flipping as the patties will only loosely hold together depending on how firmly they shaped.
