Alexandra came home from college this weekend, and I love making something special to welcome her home. If you could believe it, she loves Salmon as much as I do. When I made Salmon with Tomatoes, Onions, Olives and Capers last week, I couldn’t help but miss her and wish she was home to enjoy it with us. So, I decided to surprise her when she came home this weekend and made Walnut Crusted Salmon Cakes for the first time.
We served the Walnut Crusted Salmon Cakes over Orzo Pasta and topped them with Parsley Garlic Caper Sauce. My oh my, they were incredible! It was the perfect way to welcome my college girl home from school and spend an afternoon Around the Family Table!

- 1 small Onion, finely chopped
- 2 stalks of Celery, finely chopped

What made these Salmon Cakes so delish… there was no bread filler and no mayonnaise. We let the flavor of great ingredients shine through, and they were incredible!
