Paleo Salmon Cakes

We love salmon and these cakes are great for cooking in a skillet or out on the grill. The fresh flavors are a winning taste sensation no matter what the season. We served them with some grilled asparagus (pictured). You could also top each patty with our Avocado Dip for a creamy mayo style topping.
We always make more than we need, and then freeze, for a quick midweek meal option.

Calories 190 kcal


  • 12 oz Sockeye Salmon Fillets (Cooked) Flaked
  • 1/4 cup Coconut flour
  • 2 ribs Celery Finely diced
  • 4 cloves Garlic Finely diced
  • 1 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Cilantro
  • Salt & ground black pepper
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 6 tbsp Coconut Oil For Frying



  • In a mixing bowl, flake the cooked salmon fillets. Then add the coconut flower and mix until fully combined
  • Beat the eggs in a separate bowl, then stir into the salmon mixture until fully combined
  • Form the mixture into 8 patties (they were approx 3oz each when i made them) about 2.5-3" across.

Cooking in a skillet

  • This next bit depends on the size of your frying pan or skillet! I cooked them in 2 batches of 4 cakes. If your pan is large enough you can do them all in one go.
  • Heat the coconut oil in your frying pan or skillet on a medium heat. When hot, add the salmon cakes and cook for roughly 3-5 minutes on each side (depending on how thick your salmon cakes are) They should be golden but not burned :)

Cooking on the grill

  • If you would like to cook out on the grill instead, just brush each patty on both sides with coconut oil, before placing on the grill.
  •  Use indirect heat to cook on both sides for about 4 minutes.
  • Finish for 1-2 minutes on both sides, on the direct heat to get the nice grill marks.

Serving up

  • Serve with lime wedges
