This year we took part in the Food Network & Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (SOBEWFF®). The festival benefits the Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at Florida International University.

We were delighted to be selected by celebrity chef and long-time Oshēn supporter Jernard Wells to supply the salmon for his famed Creole Lemon Butter Salmon Cakes.

The entire dish is so simple and so good! If you’re only cooking for one or two—or you’ve got a bigger crowd to feed—it’s easy to scale the recipe up or down. Check out the recipe below.
