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.

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
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.
