I’m always looking for budget-friendly ways to get seafood into my family. If I have the money in our budget I will buy fresh salmon, cause we all know that is the best. But, if I don’t have the money, I don’t stress, I just grab some canned WILD-caught salmon and find creative ways to use it. I get my salmon from Costco for a good price, along with a bunch of other things.

Last night, I made a great salmon patty with a cream sauce worth sharing. These are Whole30 and 21 Day Sugar Detox friendly!!! Hope you like it!

Salmon Patties with a Creamy Lemon-Dill Sauce

_MG_7200

Ingredients:

2 (6-ounce) cans of wild salmon

4 eggs

1 TB of mustard

1 cup of almond flour

4 cloves of garlic, minced

1 onion, finely diced

1/2 ts pepper

1/2 ts salt (optional)

1 ts dill

2-4 TB of coconut oil/or butter/or lard

Directions:

1. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium heat with your fat/oil of choice.

2. In a bowl, whisk your eggs, then add the onions, garlic, almond flour, salmon, pepper, salt, dill, and mustard.

3. Shape into 8 patties. Fry them on both sides; about 3-4 minutes per side.

4. Transfer to a plate. If you would like, you can pop them in the oven for an additional 10 minutes (450 degrees F) while you make the cream sauce. This will make sure the middle is cooked through.

Creamy Lemon-Dill Sauce

1/2 cup of thick, full-fat coconut milk (I used the thick part off an unshaken can). If you do dairy, you can use sour cream.

2 TB of lemon juice

1 ts of dried dill

Few shakes of black pepper

Directions:

Whisk all the ingredients together. Pour over the Salmon Patties and enjoy!

    Can you please tell me what brand salmon you buy at Costco. Last time I bought canned salmon there it was a good deal but then I realised it wasn’t wild. Thanks for the recipe. Will definately be trying it. I love salmon parties. I just discovered your blot yesterday and love it.

      I used up the last can yesterday so I can’t look. But it comes in a 6pack and says wild-Alaskan on it.

    Think I can sub coconut flour for the almond flour?

    • The Paleo Mama March 27, 2013 at 3:58 pm #

      Yes, but probably not as much since coconut flour soaks up liquids and is really dry

        I successfully made these with 1/2 cup plus 4 tbs of coconut flour. (The 4 Tbs was to dust the pre formed patties so that they didn’t stick to the pan).

      Hi Miriam, how did it work with coconut flour?? (if you remember :))

    Could you sub tuna?

    I made them minus the garlic and onoins. I ddidn’t have them on hand. So yummy as and very filling! Thank you! Would you say just one of these is a serving or two? It would be good with an S side!

    • The Paleo Mama August 13, 2013 at 9:50 pm #

      I would say two servings…or even 3-4.

      • Macrina August 14, 2013 at 9:01 pm #

        So 2 patties of the 8 would be consider a serving you think? Which would be 4 servings total.

        • The Paleo Mama August 15, 2013 at 1:41 pm #

          I usually eat 2 patties…but you can eat more if you want!

    What if I have fresh caught salmon? do I just use it raw and it’ll cook in the skillet?

    • The Paleo Mama August 16, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

      You could probably do it either way. You could lightly bake it before hand, or just bake it on the skillet. If you start with it raw, I would toss it in the oven to finish it off and get the middle cooked through.

    Made these tonite. Very good recipe. Could have used more dill in the actual patties. The lemon dill sauce was over the top delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Shannon October 21, 2013 at 1:29 pm #

    These are fabulous…I followed the patty recipe exactly except I added 2 tsp of old bay seasoning. Have you ever frozen the cooked patties before and reheated them later? Wondering if these could be a semi-convience food ala freezer ;)

    • The Paleo Mama October 21, 2013 at 3:02 pm #

      No I never have! They usually don’t make it that long! I’m actually about to make some more tonight! I’m so glad you enjoyed them!

    did I understand an earlier post on this recipe – that 1 cake would be considered 2 servings?

  10. Jeannette November 20, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

    I made these for the first time on Sunday, so that I would have something for lunch all week. They. are. awesome. Even my husband loves them, and he doesn’t like fish. :)

  11. Rebecca February 11, 2014 at 12:56 pm #

    I freaking loved these. So did my husband and my 8-month-old baby. Thank you so much!!!
