Mom's Salmon Patties

This recipe makes 3 patties.

This is a very simple recipe inspired by my mother's recipe, and her recipe inspired by her mother, my grandmother. Grandma called the Salmon Croquettes, but she dipped hers in flour before frying. My mother had a slightly different version, and the one you see above is my revision.

As I mentioned, this is a super easy recipe. If you're using canned salmon, simply open the can and if your brand contains bones or skin, remove both leaving only the flakes of fish.

Pour the salmon into a bowl, break the fish into small pieces, add in the scrambled egg and all other ingredients. Mix gently and allow to sit for about two minutes so that the coconut flour can absorb the moisture.

Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to form patties.

Melt your favorite fat in a skillet and heat until nice and hot. Drop the patties in and saute for about two minutes on each side to brown. These stuck in my stainless skillet so be sure to use plenty of fat.

Turn down heat and continue to cook on each side about two minutes until the patties feel firm.

With an additional egg on the side, this serves one person breakfast doing the leptin reset. Three patties contains: 340 calories, 45 grams protein, 17 grams fat and 5 carbohydrates.

  1. Looks yummy. I like to make a Mexican version. I add green onion, cilantro, red pepper, lime juice, cumin. It’s great with some yogurt or mayo on top!!!

  2. My mom used to make these when I was a kid. She would leave the bones in, though, and my sisters & I would be thrilled if we were the ones to get the little bones in our croquette. It was like finding treasure to us! Thanks for the memory; think I’ll have to make some soon.

  3. @Jeannie, that is kind of funny to me that you and your sister would fight over the salmon bones. I take it you weren’t picky eaters, lol! I was so so picky as a child, finding bones in my salmon would have been a bad thing. LOL. 🙂 Thanks for visiting and commenting!

  4. I just tried these and they were awesome!!!! I am considered a very good cook and I actually like these better than my own salmon patties that are not gluten free. This has me excited because today is my first day on a paleo, gluten free diet and yours was my first recipe. This might turn out great! Thanks again!!!

  5. Wow Cathy, what a nice compliment! Congratulations on your new way of eating! I have a lot of recipes that fit with paleo here on the blog and everything is gluten free. Nice to meet you and thanks for leaving a comment! 🙂

  6. This might be a silly question, but is the scrambled egg cooked before being mixed with the salmon…?

  7. Hi LL, no, it is not cooked first. Maybe I should have said “whisk” instead of scramble. ~Starlene

  8. Thank you, Starlene! I made these tonight and they were SO GOOD! My husband, who would never order anything salmon at a restaurant, absolutely loved these. He said they tasted just like chicken nuggets. =P

  9. Hi LL! Awesome! I’m so glad that they were a hit! 🙂 Thank you for your comment! ~Starlene
