Okay, so I made up this awesome recipe today, and I
had a few friends ask for it, so I decided to put it up on the blog so that everyone who wants it, can enjoy it.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Allie's Salmon Cakes
14 ounces fresh salmon (about 2 normal sized fillets)
1 T olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp paprika (divided)
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/4 cup onion, diced
1 stalk of celery, diced
1/2 cup small-diced bell pepper, any color
1/4 cup canned or frozen corn
2 tsp dried flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon capers, drained
10 Ritz Crackers (or saltines, or 3/4 cup bread crumbs)
1/2 cup good mayonnaise
Grill salmon fillet, season with salt, pepper, paprika.
Once grilled, flake up all the salmon with a fork. Allow to cool.
While salmon is cooling, dice veggies. Sautee with capers, corn, parsley and more salt and pepper and paprika.
Sautee for about 15 minutes on medium low.
While veggies are sauteeing, put your rits crackers in the food processor, and grind into fine crumbs.
Combine the flaked salmon, sauteed veggies, ritz crumbs, and mayo.
Allow to chill for about 15 minutes.
Once chilled, shape mixture into 1/3 cup sized patties.
Heat T of Olive oil in a large sautee pan over medium high heat. Add the salmon cakes, and fry on each side for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
