Salmon Cakes - Our Paleo Life

Salmon Cakes

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.

Author: Kendra Benson


  • 1 8-10 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.

    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!
