Salmon Cakes with Roasted Marinated Sweet Peppers

my sister amber is leaving tomorrow morning to go back to the states so tonight was her goodbye dinner, which she picked. the salmon cakes and sweet peppers were a really good combo. here are the recipes...

...salmon cakes
recipe my own creation
4 boneless salmon fillets
cajun seasoning
1 egg
2 spoonfulls mayonaise
bread crumbs
handfull of cilantro chopped
handfull of freshly grated parmesan cheese
juice from half a lemon

Sprinkle the salmon fillets with the cajun seasoning and bake for about 20 minutes or until fully cooked. Let the salmon cool enough to handle and then flake the salmon into chunks with a fork. In a separate bowl mix together the egg and the rest of the ingredients. Fold in the salmon. Form patties of the salmon mixture with your hands and place on a baking tray. Place the salmon cakes under the broiler until they start to turn a little golden and then turn them over and place back under the broiler for a few more minutes.

...roasted marinated sweet peppers
recipe from the sociable cook by katie stewart
4 sweet peppers - red and yellow
1/2 large onion
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
salt and pepper
juice 1 lemon

Quarter the peppers and remove the stems and seeds. Place on a baking tray and put them under the broiler and cook until the skins are blistered and charred. Remove the peppers from the broiler and cover the tray with a towel and let stand for about 10 minutes until they are cool enough to handle. Peel off the skins and thinly slice the peppers and place in a serving bowl.
Thinly slice the onion. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil, add the onion and sprinkle with sugar. Cook gently unitl the onion softens and turns golden, then sprinkle with the thyme. Add the salt and pepper and lemon juice and the remaining olive oil. Bring to a simmer and then pour the mixture over the peppers. Marinate the peppers for 6 hours or overnight, preferably not in the refrigerator (although I only had time to marinate them for about 1 hour and they were still really good.
