Paleo Salmon Cakes

These paleo salmon cakes make for a fantastic light lunch or even dinner. They’re amazing just by themselves but also go really well with a green salad.

If you’re looking for a paleo friendly condiment to have with these salmon cakes, then I recommend something like the homemade paleo tartar sauce. This tasty sauce goes well with any seafood based dishes.

One thing that I loved to do with these is freeze the patties down. This way I can just get a couple out of the freezer when I want to quickly cook up a lunch or dinner. I usually don’t have any problem cooking them from frozen.

Cooking Tips:

If you’re not a fan of sweet potato, then you can swap it out for squash. Just follow the same steps replacing the sweet potato with your chosen squash.
You can prepare these ahead of time and keep them in the fridge. Just complete up until step 5 and then store them away. I find they often hold together better when they’re chilled for a hour or so.
Whilst these salmon cakes shouldn’t fall apart it is still important not to fiddle with them as this may cause them to break apart and become an unappetizing mess. The patty mix is basically already cooked (apart from the egg) so we’re only frying to get a nice crispy outside and heat them up.
If you don’t mind the bones, you can usually leave these in as they’re typically edible. I personally prefer to remove them as I don’t like the grittiness they add.

If you’re not a fan of salmon, then something like some paleo tuna cakes might interest you a bit more. They’re very similar to these but of course have a few differences such as replacing salmon with tuna.
