Salmon Cakes

Please share:

I don’t even like salmon. That is unless it’s raw and melty delicious. Seriously, salmon sashimi is the food of the gods. But I digress. I don’t like cooked salmon. But I love crab cakes. A lot. And you know what? These salmon cakes are great, even for a cooked-salmon-hater like myself. And they’re even better dipped in some Jalapeno-Lime Mayo and some of The Best Guacamole. Do it.

Salmon Cakes

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 8 oz Salmon Filet, baked and cooled
  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 Tbsp small Onion, or 1 Dried Minced Onion, minced
  • 1 clove of Garlic, minced
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Sweet Potatoes, shredded
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • Coconut Oil, to fry


  1. In a medium bowl, flake the salmon with a fork. Mix in the eggs, garlic, almond flour, sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-low heat (I set my flame to 4). Scoop mixture into 3 inch patties, about 1/2 inch thick. In batches (whatever fits in your skillet), cook patties about 3-5 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Watch carefully to make sure they don't burn. My first batch was a little crispy.

  1. Hi kendra- I would like to echo Jessica’s question above and ask if canned salmon can be used for this. I’m sure it can but I wonder if you think it would turn out as tasty…thanks!

    1. I have tried it with canned salmon and it worked fine, though I do prefer fresh, wild-caught salmon.

We have enjoyed this soup both with and without the addition of the pork sausage, so it is both Whole30 and vegan friendly. This minestrone soup tastes even better than the endless soup from a certain chain restaurant, and you can make you own endless salad to go along with it.

Blueberries & Cream Gummies – Paleo

My kids love these real-fruit, no-sugar gummies and I love that they're getting the benefits from gelatin and real fruit and not the nasty side-effects of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors.
