Salmon fishcakes

Simple sweet potato fishcakes

These super tasty and simple-to-make fishcakes are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  The ingredients are light and fresh - perfect for the start of spring/summer.

They are packed with healthy protein and anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids from the salmon.  And the sweet potatoes are rich in antioxidants and beta carotene, which gets converted into vitamin A to support your immune function and eye health
