Salmon Cakes with Miso Sauce
This is a great way to use the end pieces and leftovers from salmon fillets. When I buy a piece of salmon I usually end up cutting off the non-uniform end piece and throwing it in the freezer. When I have about a cup and a half of salmon, I make salmon cakes.

- 3 scallions green parts only finely sliced
