Health benefits of salmon cakes

Salmon is packed with heart-healthy Omega 3 fatty acids, selenium (the feel-good hormone), tryptophan ( boosts your sleep quality and mood), Vitamin D, and quality proteins and nutrients.  Essentially, it’s a powerhouse that helps with brain, nerve and eye development. 

 

Salmon also helps reduce unwanted inflammation in the body – which is the source of everyday aches and pains for many. Add in the fact that these salmon patties sneak in some extra veggies, that makes these under-30-minute cakes an even better option for those quick, go-to meals on busy nights.
