smoked out.

Mara went to Frank's Smoke House this week and at some point retasted his lightly smoked salmon cakes with mango chutney and found them to still be delicious. Since this is a household that really likes fish cakes, we decided to see if we could recreate these even without owning our own smokehouse.

Two minor points of interest: we used Liquid Smoke for the smokey component here, but I'd also like to try smoked salmon (maybe two tablespoons minced is where I would start?), or bacon would probably also be not terrible.

And, you may notice that there's no egg in these cakes. Didn't need it.
