Happy Sunday! I love when I try a recipe for the first time and it’s easy and delicious! I remember when I came across canned salmon for the first time last year – something I had never tried before. I found Wild Alaskan canned salmon and tuna in olive oil at my local Costco, and remember thinking, I will figure out something to make with the canned salmon. I am so glad I finally found a recipe for the cans of salmon I have in my pantry!
Easy Salmon Cakes
Prep Time: 10 minutes, Yield: 4 cakes
2 6-ounce cans wild salmon, drained
1 egg, beaten (or flax egg substitute)
1/4 cup minced shallots or yellow onion
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup scallions, minced
1 tsp. dijon mustard
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. onion powder
1 TB. fresh parsley or dill
fresh ground pepper, to taste
1-2 tsp. coconut flour (optional)
coconut oil, for cooking
Combine the salmon, egg, shallots, garlic, spices and mustard in a bowl and mix well. If the mixture is too wet, add some coconut flour over the mixture, and mix.
Form the mixture into four equal patties. Add enough coconut oil to pan to create a layer. (I use my cast iron pan and it browns them beautifully!). Add the patties to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes on each side. (I set the timer and check before flipping. Allow them to cook all the way through.
Serve warm over mixed greenss or wrap with lettuce for a quick salmon burger. Enjoy!
