  • 16 ounces flaked cooked salmon (4 cups loosely packed) Or 14.75 ounces (about two cans) of canned salmon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2/3 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley
  • 2 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt Stonyfield Organic Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 clove chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley


  • Flake 4 cups (16 ounces) of loosely packed cooked salmon into a medium bowl. If you are using salmon from a can, this will equate to about 2 cans (14.75 ounces).
  • Lightly beat eggs. Chop the onion, garlic, and parsley. Juice the lemon.
  • Combine flaked salmon, beaten egg, 1/2 cup of diced onion, 2/3 cups of almond flour, 1/4 cup of freshly chopped parsley, 2 cloves of garlic (chopped), sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper into the medium bowl you pulled out for the salmon.
  • Gently, stir ingredients together with mixing utensil until well combined.
  • With a disher (scooper) that measures to be 1/4 of a cup (2 ounces), scoop out the salmon mixture from the bowl.
  • Once you have a scoop of salmon, gently press and form salmon mixture into an even patty. Let patties rest on parchment paper or baking sheet. Repeat for each scoop.
  • With a large frying pan and medium heat, evenly coat the bottom of pan with neutral oil of choice (we used olive oil). Place salmon patties in pan.
  • Cook for 5-6 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon wedges.

Lemon Garlic Sauce

  • With a small bowl and spoon, combine mayonnaise, plain yogurt, freshly squeezed lemon juice, chopped garlic, and freshly chopped parsley. Garnish with fresh parsley, Old Bay Seasoning, and freshly cracked pepper.
  • Pour lemon garlic sauce over garnished salmon patties. Serve!


  • We only tried this with almond flour; we do not know the success rate with white wheat flour.
  • Definitely keep your olive oil on hand as you cook the patties in your frying pan. If you are a using a nonstick pan, these patties will stick which means you will need to continue adding your oil.
