Wild salmon muffins

fish cakes for lunch or a snack at work and school are one of the health­i­est op­tions around. For th­ese muffins you use pre-cooked wild salmon, but you can opt for any cooked seafood you like, or re­place it with any type of mince to make a yummy patty. Served with salad and mayo, the muffins also make a great light din­ner.
