Avocado-Caper Salmon Patties (Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Grain-free, Paleo)

Hello Friends!

I promised you all my Salmon Patties recipe, so I am delivering on that. It is a loaded version as I have added some ingredients that will increase the healthy fat and protein content, including chia and hemp seeds, avocado and almond and coconut flour. Here it is:

Avocado-Caper Salmon Patties


3 6-oz cans of Wild Alaskan Pink Salmon, drained from liquid (or 18-20oz cooked or grilled salmon)

1 organic, pastured egg

Juice of 1 lemon

1/2 avocado

1 Tablespoon chia seeds

1 Tablespoon hemp seeds

1 Tablespoon capers

1 Tablespoon coconut flour (or 2 Tablespoons if not using almond flour)

2 Tablespoons almond flour (or 1/4C if not using coconut flour)

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder or 2 cloves fresh minced garlic

1/2 tablespoon dried parsley

Optional: crushed gluten-free corn chips for coating patties

Lemon-Caper-Butter Sauce Ingredients:

3 Tablespoons organic, grass-fed butter, salted

2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1-2 Tablespoons capers, mushed


1) In a food processor, puree avocado and lemon juice

2) In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients, adding the pureed avocado and lemon juice

3) Form patties by hand

4) In a cast iron skillet, heat 2 Tablespoons of butter or coconut oil in medium heat

5) Place patties in skillet and cook on one side without moving or flipping for about 5-6 minutes, until golden brown. Carefully flip each patty and cook on other side until golden brown.

6) Serve with lemon-caper-butter sauce (just melt butter and add lemon juice and mushed capers) and your choice of vegetables. Also great as a salad topping!


Stay Happy and Healthy,
