These mini salmon cakes are moist on the inside with a slight crunch on the outside. They are busting with flavors but contain very simple ingredients so they come together easily and keep well for leftovers. Remember to choose wild caught salmon to prevent consuming harmful PCP's and antibiotics. Wild caught salmon is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are know to be one of the most powerful medicines when it comes to reducing inflammation.

Quick Salmon Dill Cakes: (PRINT RECIPE)
20 ounces wild caught salmon (canned or pre-cooked)*
2 tablespoons fresh dill
¼ red onion, minced
3 heaping tablespoons ground flaxseed
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (optional)
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon organic ghee or coconut oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges
*Trader Joes sells 14.5-ounce cans of wild caught salmon for like $3.49; best price by a long shot I’ve found out there. Or you can buy fresh wild caught salmon filets. Add some salt, pepper, and lemon juice and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Then shred to make the “cakes”.
These also taste great cold – I like to double this recipe so that I can toss the leftover patties onto a salad for a great healthy lunch option. I hope you enjoy these as much I do! Leave me some feedback below if you try them out!
