Salmon Cakes for Two

This salmon cakes recipe is almost too easy. To make it a bit more complicated, form the patties into hearts using a cookie cutter in the skillet. Remove cutter before turning the cakes. Add applesauce to the top of each cake and sprinkle a few red-hot candies into the apple sauce.
