I am in the first week of my second round of Whole 30. I did my first Whole 30 last year and had a great experience. Your can read all about it and see what I ate by clicking here. We decided to do Whole 30 again to help us get back on track after the holiday season. Sara and I are both doing Whole 30 this January…wish us luck!!!
This time around I thought I would change it up a bit and try adding some new fish recipes to my Whole 30 repertoire. I have always been a fan of crab cakes. When I was younger that and fried shrimp were the only seafood I would eat. As we grew up my parents tried to incorporate more fish into our diets. I remember my mom used to make salmon that was baked with a little Cesar dressing and fresh ginger…I know it sounds weird, but trust me it is delicious. This dish made me fall in love with salmon…and once the love affair started there was no looking back.
For this recipe I wanted to combine my first two seafood loves, crab cakes and salmon, in one dish. These delicious salmon cakes are both Paleo and Whole 30 compliant. One of the things I like best is that it is a great recipe for using up leftover salmon. I like serving it with some lemon wedges, but I think avocado would work well with the dish as well.
12oz. salmon, cooked
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 onion, minced
1 celery rib, minced
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp chopped chives
Salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
3 tbsp coconut oil
lemon wedges, to serve
- Add the cooked salmon to a large mixing bowl. Use a fork to break the salmon apart.
- Add the onion, celery, chives, salt, black pepper, and lemon juice and mix.
- Add the coconut flour, continue mixing until the coconut flour is well incorporated.
- Add the eggs and mix until everything is well combined .
- Use your hands to form the mixture into 6 equal patties.
- Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
- Add the salmon cakes to the skillet 3 a a time. Cook for 3 minutes per side, being careful not to burn.
- Serve with lemon wedges.
Guess what? We’re having salmon patties for dinner today! Thanks for the recipe. How many patties does this recipe make?
about 6. Enjoy it!!
I tried these out last night and they were delicious. They were great with homemade tartar sauce. I’m going to add finely shredded carrots to the mixture the next time I make these. Great recipe, thanks!
