  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon cooked*
  • 2 cups zucchini shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons onion finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil for frying
  • Avocado Jicama Salsa optional, to top


  • Add the salmon, zucchini, eggs, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice and salt to a blender, and process until everything is mixed together well.
  • Form patties about 1/4 cup in size.
  • Add almond flour to a bowl, and gently coat both sides of the patties in almond flour.
  • Head avocado oil in a large skillet over medium to medium high heat. Add coated salmon patties into the hot oil, and fry for about 5 minutes on both sides, until golden in color. If they are cooking too quickly, turn the heat down. If they aren't browning well, turn the heat up.
  • Remove browned salmon patties from the skillet and set on a plate lined with a paper towel.
  • Serve immediately. These also store well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or frozen wrapped air tight for up to 3 months. Bake at 425º F for 15-20 minutes to reheat and serve (they are also delicious cold!).



*If you don't have left over salmon to use in this recipe, wrap salmon in foil, and bake in a preheated oven at 425ºF for 15 minutes. This will slightly undercook salmon, keeping it from drying out when cooked a 2nd time as a salmon patty.
