Salmon Cakes, Patties, Burgers, Whathaveyou

Thought I'd try something new tonight, mainly because I didn't have anything thawed or pre-made and I was feeling lazy.  It's snowing like a banshee here so I also wanted something warm, but all I had was canned salmon.  For those of you who have never had canned salmon before, it can be a bit frightening.  I grew up with the stuff, so didn't have any aversion to the skin or bones left in with the meat, but to some it might look pretty nasty.  All I can say is...try it!  It's actually delicious and full of calcium and Omega 3's and other fantastic, life-supporting elements.

Salmon Cakes, Patties, Burgers, Whathaveyou.


1 can (14.5 oz) Pink Salmon
3/4 cup Almond Flour or Meal
1/2 cup finely chopped Onion
2 eggs, beaten
Juice from 1/2 lemon
2 TBSP mayo
1 TBSP minced garlic
1 TBSP fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
Coconut oil


Drain salmon and flake into medium bowl.  Combine all ingredients except coconut oil and mix thoroughly.

Heat skillet over medium-low heat and melt a couple tablespoons of coconut oil.

Form patties with the salmon mixture (will be wet, like tuna salad).  Place patties in skillet and cook until browned.  About 4-5 minutes per side.  Flip carefully, as they will fall apart until cooked through.

Serve on a lettuce leaf with tomato or just eat plain!  Goes great with Mango Avocado Salsa.
