Hispanic Heritage Month Recipes

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, from September 15 to October 15 Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. 2021 was especially significant because it was the 200th anniversary of Costa Rican Independence from Spain. Here are a few traditional & unique Latin American recipes you may want to add to your menu: 

Salmon Cakes

Salmon is probably my favorite fish. It's a versatile, hearty fish that doesn't leave you hungry after eating like some white fish...I'm looking at you Tilapia. There are so many delicious ways to prepare it: Salmon Lox, Salmon Pie, Smoked Salmon Salad, Salmon Poke, Salmon Skewers and of course Salmon Cakes.
I adapted my Grandma Walsh's Cod Cake recipe to make this delicious fish cake using Salmon. This lemony, dill salmon cake is chock full of green veggies and filled out with potatoes making it a great lunch or dinner option. 

Here is my Salmon Cake Recipe:
