easy paleo salmon patties.

On Fridays we (sometimes) eat fish. Here’s an easy, healthy recipe for salmon patties–a long-time favorite of ours. My Grandma Eleanor made these for us all the time when we were younger–almost every Friday night during Lent. And my mom carried on the tradition as we got older. I’ve adapted their recipes a little–to make them Paleo and Whole30 compliant. Enjoy.

Grandma Eleanor’s Salmon Patties-Paleo Style

Ingredients–Makes 8 Patties

  • 1 can premium salmon
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoon fresh basil
  • 4 tablespoon coconut flour
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Juice of one lemon to taste
  • Coconut oil cooking spray

Drain salmon and dump in a bowl. Use a fork to mash salmon into flakes. Mix in eggs, dill, basil, coconut flour and lemon zest.


Use your hands to form mixture into patties. Spray your pan with coconut oil cooking spray and gently place four patties in the pan at a time.


Fry on medium-high heat until both sides are golden brown.


Serve with a little squeeze of lemon and a big squeeze of ketchup–Nanny Carol is a fan.
