Recipe - Paleo Salmon Cakes

I've had a lot of interest for our paleo salmon cakes however these could easily be a paleo fish cake if you want to substitute any fresh or canned fish that you may have

Paleo Salmon Cakes

2 Cans of Salmon + any cooked salmon that you may have left over
Flesh of one large cooked sweet potato (We roast, others boil)
2 Eggs
2 Tbsp Fresh Dill or 1 Tbsp of Dried Dill
2 tsps salt
1 tsp black pepper
Coconut Flour to Bind

Coconut Flour
Ground Pork Rinds

Combine all ingredients except the coconut flour and mix well. Everyday seems to be different and sometimes it binds immediately and sometimes I have to add in coconut flour. I'll start with a few Tbsp of coconut flour and continue mixing until it just starts to come together.

If you need to cook immediately, I would recommend baking them in a 375F oven for 15-20 minutes until warm in the middle. It's difficult to get a great crust when cooked immediately. Our cheat is to coat in ground pork rinds and it's a great paleo substitute to panko bread crumbs. Be careful though, the pork rinds burn easily.

If able, let cool for an hour in the fridge then shape into patties. If you want, coat in coconut flour and fry in coconut oil over medium-low heat for 4 minutes a side. The coconut flour is full of oil and will burn easily if the pan is too hot.

Top with some Bayonnaise and remaining dill and enjoy.

Whole30 Day by Day. Day 3

We all started out the day with a two egg omelette filled with a ton of shitake, oyster and cremini mushrooms.  Local cantaloupe on the side.  So sweet and delicious.

Lunch was leftover salmon cakes with mixed greens.  The greens were topped with a really delicious red wine vinaigrette that we make and some sliced green olives.  Chris topped the salmon burgers with bayonnaise.  We also chowed down on some watermelon.  Too delicious for photos!

And for dinner, grilled flank steak with cumin-coriander mashed cauliflower and grilled tomatoes.  Grilling the tomatoes really brings out the sweetness.

A really lovely end to the weekend.  I'm looking forward to hunkering down with a big cup of herbal tea and watching Dexter and Breaking Bad.

Whole30 Day by Day. Day 1

When I first discovered the Whole30 and Whole9 I searched everywhere for blogs that chronicled their entire Whole30, so I really thought it would be helpful if I were to chronicle my Whole30 every day.

Breakfast was some scrambled eggs, bacon and some leftover coconut almond green beans from Well Fed  And a cup of black coffee, of course.

Next up for lunch were some paleo salmon cakes, mixed greens, cucumbers and tomatoes.  The salmon cakes were quite easy to make; canned salmon mixed with some sweet potatoes, dill, coconut flour and eggs to bind everything today.  You can easily make paleo or whole30 compliant fish cakes using different kinds of fish.  I've done these with tuna before and they were quite tasty.

 And for dinner black kale and a grass fed burger topped with guacamole, a fried egg and hot sauce.

This evening it'll be a nice cup of herbal tea to end a day of eating clean. Day 2 can be seen here
