Waffle Salmon Cakes

I’m always looking for new ways to use my mini Dash iron. Waffle Salmon Cakes were another experiment that yielded success. If you don’t already have a unit, I HIGHLY recommend! I have no idea how often I would use it. Dash irons come in several shapes and colors, take up very little space, and only cost ~$10! Shopping information linked below.
