salmon cakes with lemon caper mayonnaise

whatever you call them croquettes, burgers, cakes.. etc.. they are good we actually ended up eating ours on toasted ciabatta bread with spicy cocktail sauce (ketchup, prepared horseradish and a squeeze of fresh lemon) and a slice of purple onion.. very good.. now working with canned salmon is not for the weak of heart or stomach for that matter.. i drained mine into a colander and picked out the bones and skin before adding to my mixing bowl.. and there is no picture.. they wouldn't let me take it they were hungry.. ha ha.. i served with sweet potato fries and smoky fry sauce..
