Salmon Cakes over Lemon Harissa Pasta

Feb 12, 2021Cakes Recipes

Author Notes

My husband and I really l like the flavor of harissa. I like to have a jar of it on hand in case I want to add extra flavor to vegetables or a something different to my usual meals and snacks. Depending on your preference for spicy, you can add a little less or more of the Harissa when preparing the pasta sauce for this recipe. —HealthyTwistKitchen
