Paleo Dinner Recipes
This recipe was kind of a risk for me because I bought some canned salmon at Whole Foods awhile back but I was took scared to try it. Whole Foods is kind of my litmus test for if a food will be on my “to-eat” list. So if Whole Foods sells canned salmon it must be OK right??
In my pantry it sat…
But alas the day came when I forgot to defrost my frozen salmon and dinner had to be made. On the menu were these amazing salmon burgers inspired by a recipe I got once from E-meals. I decided to give the canned salmon a go. And let me tell you, I couldn’t taste the difference! It was super easy too because I just had to open the can and drain it. Would I use it again? Sure, if I was in a pinch, absolutely. I almost always prefer fresh to canned but in a pinch its better to make a clean recipe than go for something less healthy right??
Herbed Salmon Burgers – one of my new favorite paleo dinner recipes!
10 oz fresh salmon, thawed salmon, or 2-5 oz. cans wild sockeye salmon (from Whole Foods preferably!)
1 large egg, beaten
2 TB coconut flour (can substitute almond flour if you prefer)
2 TB fresh chopped basil
1/2 medium red pepper diced
1 small shallot diced
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Dry fresh or thawed salmon with a paper towel or drain canned sockeye salmon. Carmelize shallots in a drizzle of olive oil. Combine salmon with shallots, peppers, egg, flour, basil and spices. Shape mixture into 2-3 patties. Transfer to a prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, flipping once mid-way, or until cooked through.
