Ingredients for the salmon cakes:

•             2 6-oz cans of salmon, drained

•             2 large eggs

•             2 tablespoons almond flour

•             1/4 cup finely chopped onion

•             1/4 cup finely chopped celery

•             1/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper

•             2 cloves garlic, minced

•             1 tablespoon lemon juice

•             1/2 teaspoon salt

•             1/4 teaspoon black pepper

•             1/4 cup coconut oil (for frying)

Ingredients for the cream sauce:

•             1/2 cup heavy cream

•             1/4 cup chicken broth

•             2 tablespoons butter

•             2 cloves garlic, minced

•             1/4 teaspoon salt

•             1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the drained salmon, egg, almond flour, onion, celery, bell pepper, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.

  2. Shape the mixture into a patty, about 1/2 inch thick. If the mixture is too wet, you can add a bit more almond flour to help bind it together.

  3. Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the salmon patty in the skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

  4. In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.

  5. Add the chicken broth to the skillet and stir to combine with the butter and garlic. Allow it to simmer for 2 minutes.

  6. Reduce the heat to low and add the heavy cream, salt, and black pepper to the skillet. Stir well and continue to simmer for another 2-3 minutes, until the sauce thickens slightly.

  7. Place the cooked salmon patty on a serving plate and pour the cream sauce over it.

  8. Serve the salmon cake with cream sauce immediately and enjoy!
