Drain crabmeat. Dice shrimp into 1/2-inch pieces. Purée salmon in food processor. Mix crabmeat, shrimp and salmon together gently in a bowl. Set aside. Heat oil in a skillet and sauté shallots, garlic, green onion and red and green bell peppers. Add wine and continue cooking until the liquid has evaporated; remove from heat and let cool. Add cooled vegetables to seafood. Add eggs, breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, seasoned salt, Cholula sauce, cayenne, Parmesan cheese and parsley. Mix well, taking care to retain chunks of crabmeat. Cover and refrigerate until needed. To cook, add 1/4 cup oil to a hot sauté pan. Form seafood cakes into 2- to 3-ounce disks. Place carefully into hot oil. Let cakes brown, then turn and brown on other side; continue cooking until cakes are cooked through. To serve, pour lemon sauce on plate. Place seafood cake on top. Top with 1 tablespoon Orange Chutney. Garnish each plate with a lemon half and chives.

Makes about 18-20 cakes.

For Lemon Chive Sauce: Combine lemon juice, water, shallots, salt, and pepper in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Mix wine and cornstarch together until smooth. Add to juice mixture and bring to a boil; simmer for a few minutes, stirring, adding a little more water if needed, and adjusting seasoning. Add chives at the time of serving.

For Orange Chutney: Using a paring knife, peel oranges, then cut out segments; discard seeds. Cut orange segments in half. Place in a bowl along with red onion, chives, vinegar, honey, and salt and pepper. Mix well, cover, and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
