#TripleSBites ~ Salmon Cakes with Vinaigrette Pasta




Welcome to another day of #TripleSBites!  The SPICY, SAUCY, SEXY bloggers have come together to bring you some mouthwatering recipes to plan your special Valentine's Day meal for your loved one between February 2nd though 9th!

Today I am sharing these delicious salmon cakes served on a bed of tangy, lightly sweet (and definitely sexy) Roasted Beet Vinaigrette Pasta. I loved this meal. The salmon cakes were tender, and lightly spiced from the delicious "Spicy Everything Mayo" from Intensity Academy, the pasta soaked up the beet vinaigrette, and the combination was perfect. Neither flavor overpowered the other, they just went well together!

If I had beet lovers in my house, I would have chopped some beets up and tossed those along with asparagus (which is also a no-no in my house) and maybe some gorgonzola with this pasta and called that a DELICIOUS meal (maybe with some diced grilled chicken too?) The options are endless. This vinaigrette is fabulous and has a lovely, earthy note to it that I really enjoyed. In any event, topping the pasta with a salmon cake was a safer option with my beet-adverse boys, so that's the route I went!


The salon cakes were delicious too - I loved the light spice the mayo gave them, and I will definitely be making them again soon and serving them as sandwiches (with MORE mayo!!) That was my son's idea - and I agree that it sounds fantastic!
