Paleo Salmon Cakes

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"Super delicious, super fast, super paleo! Serve with a baby spinach salad and even your guests will be impressed! Flaxseed is gluten-free and paleo. Along with the egg, it makes an excellent binder that lets the salmon taste come through."

  1. Combine salmon, flaxseed meal, egg, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix well and form into 4 cakes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Fry salmon cakes until browned, about 4 minutes per side. Let sit about 2 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Canned wild alaskan pink salmon is great to use because it can be kept in the pantry for spur-of-the-moment dinners, including for unexpected guests.

Bland and boring.

Taste was excellent

Made as recipe called for. Needs to be moister. Perhaps more oil in the actual recipe. Was OK and I like salmon so I’ll try again.
