This is one of my favorite lunch dishes… It’s pretty easy and good whether eating it cold or warm. Also great for breakfast. This is also one of my “I’m feeling lazy” meals because I will typically purchase the salmon out of the can and bottled mayo… I know, I know ‘it’s not Paleo..’ For this one, I don’t care cause this is a simply a recipe that’s a quickie for me. Feel free to make your own mayo and use fresh salmon, I’m sure the flavors would be even more amazing.
The Good Stuff:
- 1 (15 oz can) wild caught Alaskan Salmon
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon ground flax (+ 1.5 tablespoons water)
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- .5 tablespoons parsley (optional)
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onion (optional)
- Dash Salt & Pepper
- Mayo (to taste)
- 1 Lemon
- Dill (to taste)
The How To:
- Beat the egg.
- Mix flax and water together and let set a couple minutes to make the flax pasty.
- Drain salmon and finely break up the fish with a fork.
- Mix together egg, flax, salmon, almond flour, parsley, onion, salt, pepper and juice from half of the lemon.
- Form into patties and heat up oil over medium – medium low heat.
- Saute patties on each side for 3-4 minutes until browned. (check for doneness)
- Squeeze the juice from the other half of the lemon into a bowl. Add may a little at a time (tasting as you go) until you get the flavor and texture that you want. Then add the dill, doing the same thing.
- Serve the patties with the sauce and enjoy!
