Sweet Potato and Salmon Cakes

I must confess something. I did not cook these. I bought all the ingredients with the intention of coming home to make these after I got home from work but by 2pm on a Friday afternoon, I was over it. I was grumpy and hungry and completely stressed out by all the assessments I need to complete over the next few weeks, including an International Law assessment due in a few days which I have yet to begin writing because I have yet to come to a complete understanding on what to write. Yes. I am very much over it.

So I decided I did not want to cook when I got home. Lucky for me my boyfriend was working from home that day so I decided he was going to cook me my salmon cakes. So I sent him the recipe and off to cook he went.... and oh my, he did it well too! These salmon cakes tasted liked little bites of heaven that danced on my tongue and made all my upcoming deadlines go away, at least for a while. 

I complimented these salmon cakes with a light garden salad with the lettuce coming straight from my garden! It was a very exciting meal for a meal that was so simple.
