Salmon Cakes with Lemon-Pepper Dipping Sauce *

These salmon cakes make a wonderful lunch or dinner meal, especially served with a generous side salad with plenty of lemons and/or the Lemon-Pepper Dipping Sauce (see recipe below). They’re easily baked in the oven, with no greasy skillets to clean up afterward. Kids really love them too!

  • 3 cans (6 oz. each) Wild Alaskan Salmon, well drained
  • 1/2 cup almond meal (preferably homemade), divided
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons finely minced onion
  • 2 Tablespoons finely minced celery OR red bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon homemade old bay seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lemon-Pepper Seasoning Blend
  • unrefined sea salt, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 or 2 fresh lemons, cut into wedges
  • Lemon Pepper Dipping Sauce (see recipe below)

Preheat oven to 425F. Have an ungreased metal baking sheet ready.

In a small bowl combine together 1/4-cup of the shredded coconut and 1/4-cup of the almond meal, set this aside.

Drain salmon well, flake into a medium-sized bowl. Add in remaining coconut and almond meal, minced onion and celery, and all of the spices. Stir to combine. Add in the oil and eggs, mixing together until thoroughly moistened.

Scoop salmon mixture into a 1/3-cup measuring cup, and using clean hands shape into small patties. Coat each side of patty into reserved almond-coconut mixture. Place patties onto baking sheet.

Bake in preheated oven for about 12 minutes, gently flip patties over and continue to cook for 3 to 5 minutes more. Serve with side(s) of choice and some lemon wedges for squeezing over top of salmon patties.

Serves 4 to 6 (about 8 patties).
