1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
¼ cup minced onion
2 tablespoons minced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons minced celery

1 tablespoon capers
1 ¼ pound fresh wild salmon, coarsely chopped
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup panko bread crumbs
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 pinch seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)
1 tablespoon panko bread crumbs, or to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed

1. Heat extra virgin olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, red pepper, celery, and a pinch of salt in hot oil until onion is soft and translucent about 5 minutes. Add capers; cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
