1 Pound fresh salmon

1/2 red bell pepper

2 celery stalks

1 Teaspoon stoneground mustard

5 Tablespoons mayonnaise, divided

1 Tablespoon capers, drained

4 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1 large egg, lightly beaten

2 Teaspoons Old Bay seasoning

1 Hass avocado

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 Teaspoons chopped fresh dill


1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Prepare a baking sheet with a small amount of oil in 4 spots about 6 inches apart. Set aside.

2. Coarsely chop the red pepper and celery. Skin salmon if skin is intact and chop into 4-inch pieces. Place all into a food processor. A food processor is not required, just be sure to finely chop all ingredients before combining (including the capers and parsley below).

3. Add the mustard, 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, capers, parsley, egg and Old Bay seasoning. Pulse 4-5 times just until the salmon is chopped. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Using a 2/3 cup measuring scoop divide the mixture into 4 equal rounded mounds on the prepared baking sheet.

4. Cook for 20 minutes and move to serving plates. Garnish each cake with 2 Tablespoons avocado tartar sauce.

5. Avocado Tartar Sauce: combine the avocado, 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, lemon juice and chopped dill in a blender (or mash by hand). Blend until smooth adding salt and black pepper to taste. 2 heaping tablespoons per serving.

Bon Appetit!
