Salmon Cornmeal Cakes
One of these salmon patties has 1200 mg of omega-3s. Super simple to serve them with salad, squash, or as salmon sliders.
- 1 can of wild salmon 14.75 oz is standard but size varies
- 1 Tbsp. chia seeds Can substitute 1 egg
- 2 1/2 Tbsp. water
- 1/3 cup yellow cornmeal finely ground
- Sunflower or avocado oil Can substitute light olive oil
Mix chia seeds and water in a small bowl and set them aside for 7 minutes to "gel"
After time has elapsed, mix canned salmon (with liquid drained) with gelled chia seeds and cornmeal. Mixing with clean hands works best for this.
Form patties by hand, making circles about 2.5 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick. Press the mixture together firmly enough so the patty stays together.
Place patties on a clean plate
Fry cakes on medium heat using sunflower or avocado oil (light olive oil can be substituted) for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Flip and brown the other side.
Serve warm and enjoy!
