Salmon Cakes

  • ¼ tsp of parsley

Directions:

  1. Ok… I cooked my fresh salmon myself.  I sprinkled salt and pepper on salmon and cooked in olive oil on the stove until done. (5-8 minutes).  You do have the option of using one 15 oz can of salmon.

  3. Beat eggs in a large bowl
  4. Mix in coconut flour, salt and pepper
  5. Add in the rest of the ingredients to egg mixture
  6. Add the salmon and combine completely
  7. Warm a skillet over medium-high heat, and add coconut oil when pan is hot.
  8. Using a tbs measurement, drop 2 tbs of salmon mixture into the coconut
  9. Fry until they are golden brown on the outside, and cooked pink on the inside (Make sure you flip them every 1-2 minutes)
  10. Place croquettes on paper towels.
