Salmon Patties with Arugula and Roots

Salmon Patties

These salmon patties are a heart-healthy version of the classic burger. I love making “buns” out of grilled portabella mushrooms or covering the top and bottom with lettuce leaves for a burger feel!


Peppers, carrots, celery and kale or spinach (omit pepper for a nightshade-free version)
1 onion
3 4-oz. cans of wild caught salmon
2 eggs
1 tbsp. coconut flour
Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
2-3 tbsp. coconut, red palm or other oil of your choice

Chop all vegetables and sauté in a small amount of oil. Remove from heat and set aside. In a mixing bowl, empty the cans of salmon and mash very well. Add eggs, coconut flour, vegetable mixture and spices and combine well.

In a frying pan over medium-high heat, heat 2-3 tbsp. oil. Form salmon mixture into balls and flatten so that they resemble burgers. Fry patties on one side until they slide easily off the pan, then flip over and fry on the second side until done.
