Salmon Patties with a different twist

Since wild caught canned salmon is so reasonably priced I have been trying to think of other ways to use it besides  my recipe for Mom's Paleo Salmon Patties which is all I ever make with it.  Tonight all I had for protein was canned salmon and I was running short on time, so I jumped on the internet did a quick search and found this really quick version of Salmon Patties, it saves just a little time because there are no veggies or onions to chop.  As far as flavor we liked it, I didn't have any lemon pepper so that would make a big difference, but honestly I'm not sure I would like the flavor the lemon pepper would bring.  We kind of liked the subtle lemon flavor of these patties.  I also have the real small cans of salmon and she used large ones so my ratios may have been a bit off, since I used 5 small cans.  I had also planned to whip up a batch of tarter sauce for them but the kids scarfed them down to run off to a meeting before I had a chance to do that.  Maybe next time, there are plenty of Paleo Mayo recipe's out there, if you're interested in making some.  And finally I bring you  Simple Paleo Primal Salmon Patties, by the Prudent Wife ( I can't necessarily recommend the site but this recipe is worth sharing).

Simple Paleo Primal Salmon Patties have a fresh, light, lemony dill taste that is out of this world!

  • 2 cans wild caught salmon, drained (we use skin and bones and the larger size cans)
  • 3 eggs (you can add a 4th egg if needed to hold patties together)
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon mustard (we used horseradish mustard for some kick)
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon cracked lemon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • Optional - 3-4 chopped green onions
Heat a cast iron skillet or flat bottomed skillet on medium heat with oil of your choice.
Meanwhile, drain canned salmon. Ignore what it looks is brain building, just use the WHOLE can! Throw salmon, and the easily mashable bones and skin (ewww, I know) into food processor. 
*Note*  I use canned salmon that has no bones or skin and just mixed it with a fork*   
Add eggs, dill, pepper, salt, coconut flour, lemon juice and 3 eggs. Pulse several times to mix thoroughly. Add chopped green onion if using (I did not use the green onion).
Drop by 1/4 cup servings into hot pan of oil (My notes:  I actually roll them into balls and flatten them on foil first.  Then use a spatula to scoop it up and then slide into the pan of oil). Cook a few minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Place in preheated oven (set to about 250 degrees) as you cook, to keep Salmon Patties warm, as you cook the rest of them.

Makes 12 Simple Paleo Primal Salmon Patties, again, for right at $5! We had a great lunch, and plenty leftover for lunches all week. Wild caught canned salmon is such an affordable way to squeeze maximum nutrition out of a tight budget, and a killer deal for those following a low carb, paleo, primal, GAPS diet lifestyle!
