Salmon cakes!


1 large can of salmon, drained
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp garlic, minced
1/2 bunch green onions, chopped
2 tsp Dijon mustard
paprika, rosemary and black pepper to taste (I sub oregano for the rosemary and a dusting of turmeric, cayenne and black pepper)
3 tbsp ghee or coconut oil for cooking

Then, combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and gently stir together until well combined.

Melt ghee or coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat. Once melted, scoop salmon mixture onto hot surface in four patties.

It’s okay to form the patties directly on the pan, just push everything together with a wooden spoon or spatula so your patties are secure and don’t fall apart when flipping.

Once one side has browned, flip them over and brown the other side. The good news is the salmon is already pre-cooked so you don’t have to be concerned about undercooking or getting sick.

Anything with eggs. No reason to have them only at breakfast. Egg & sausage casserole. Carrot (or pumpkin, or squash) souffle. Deviled eggs.


Frogtox's idea of spiralizing zucchini is fantastic too. If you haven't made zucchini noodles, you are in for a treat!

I'm hoping you meant that as a joke. There is nothing cheap about cakes and cookies. The damage they do to your health is costly in the long run. Poor nutrition takes its toll. Around here, cakes are about $8 and cookies are $4.00 for 8 if you want them to taste like something besides cardboard. Nothing cheap about that. Yesterday I hit the jackpot at the store - compliant tuna 3 cans for $1.00. I got 10 cans - the limit.
