Spice up any holiday spread with a batch of delicious seafood cakes with tropical flavors guaranteed to tingle guest’s taste buds. Pair with KORBEL Chardonnay for a charming combination worth celebrating. Smoked Salmon and Shrimp Cakes 1 lb. deveined shrimp, tails removed ¼ lb. smoked salmon pieces 5 scallions, white and light green parts, minced ½ cup panko breadcrumbs ¼ cup mayonnaise 2 tablespoons chopped parsley 2 tablespoons chopped dill 1 egg 3 tablespoons avocado oil Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place seafood in a food processor and pulse about 10 times, so it is in small chunks. Do not overprocess. In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients, and fold into seafood mixture. Form into 8 large patties or 16 small patties (for an appetizer), and place on wax paper. Heat a skillet over medium heat, and add avocado oil. Sear patties until golden-brown on both sides. Place cakes on a baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes. Serve alone with aioli. Large cakes may be served over mixed greens. Serves 8 as an entrée or 16 as an appetizer.
