How to Make It
  1. Place the salmon, quinoa, eggs, garlic, lemon zest, green bell peppers, and black pepper in a large bowl. Season to taste with sea salt and mix well until fully incorporated.
  2. Divide the mixture into eight equal-sized portions. Gently form each portion into a patty-shaped cake. Place the cakes on a plate and chill in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
  3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Gently place the cakes in the pan and fry for 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown and cooked through. Do this in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Remove from the heat and serve hot with lemon wedges and a watercress salad.
