  • 0 1/2 medium (approx 2-3/4" long, 2-1/2" dia) Red Sweet Pepper
  • 2 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
  • 16 oz, boneless, raw Salmon

  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.

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.

Cooking Tip

Don't pass up on making the avocado tartar sauce.  Try spicing it up by replacing half the Old Bay seasoning with 1/8-1/4 tsp ground chipotle pepper.
