Servings: 2-3
Preparation Time: 12 minutes

  • 2 tablespoons onion, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons celery, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup avocado, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning (or other preferred seasoning)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • 6 oz cooked salmon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2-3 tablespoons full-fat coconut milk*
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Finely chop the onion, celery, parsley, and garlic. Place the chopped veggies, avocado, seasoning, salmon, and coconut flour to a bowl. Mix well then add 2 tablespoons coconut milk and mix again. Add additional coconut milk, up to a tablespoon, if needed to hold the mixture together. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.

Form patties and arrange on a plate or other dish. Make 14-16 mini cakes or 5-7 medium sized cakes. Cover place and place in the refrigerator for approximately an hour.

To cook, heat coconut oil in skillet over med heat. When the oil is hot, add cakes, cooking in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding. Fry 4-5 minutes per side, flipping only once (make sure first side is crispy and golden brown before flipping).

* For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)

Did you use fresh cooked salmon or canned?

Amy, I use canned salmon, but either will work.

My husband and I liked this and will be making it often. He does not like avocados and did not know it was in the cakes. I had to top mine with avocado just because I like them. I did drain the liquid off the salmon.
