1. Waffle Iron Salmon Cakes
Get your waffle iron involved with these salmon cakes. It gives the novelty of having a waffle shaped salmon dish, but also serves a useful purpose, cooking them up just right with a slight crisp to the outer portion, and cooking the insides so they’re still soft but fully cooked. Be sure to follow this recipe exactly or you may end up having your salmon cakes stuck to the waffle iron, just like a ruined breakfast when the waffle batter goes wrong. Get it right and you’ll enjoy these immensely.
2. Salmon Cakes with Cilantro Lime Avocado Remoulade
This recipe shows you how to take an ordinary can of salmon and turn it into something special. With avocados and a list of vegetables, spices, and seasonings, you’re in for a healthy treat, and the remoulade that goes with this is a big plus. You can also swap in crab if you want to make crab cakes instead of salmon cakes. It’s all about keeping things as versatile as possible so you have a great recipe for whatever you happen to have on hand at the moment.
3. Spicy Salmon Cakes
Spice things up with these salmon cakes that use cayenne pepper and chili powder to give them just the right amount of heat. You don’t see salmon getting the spicy treatment too often, so it’s nice that they’ve managed to pull this off without overpowering the flavor of the salmon. They’ve even included fajita spices so it’s going to have a nice robust taste while still conforming to the Paleo guidelines when it comes to healthy food items. Always look for ways to season up your Paleo meals so that you stay interested and on track to reach your goals.
4. Weeknight Salmon Cakes
Any night of the week is a good night for salmon cakes. This recipe shows you how to make a dish everyone in the family will love, even if they’re not following Paleo. She’s included sweet potatoes in these cakes so that you’ll be getting fiber along with your protein, and it becomes more of a complete meal. You’ll also be getting antioxidants with the sweet potatoes. Additional fiber comes from the almond meal which helps to form the patty. Cumin and paprika are pretty popular spices when it comes to flavoring up salmon, and she’s using both here.
5. Paleo Salmon Cakes
These salmon cakes turn out great because they’re using all Paleo ingredients, so you don’t have any worries that you’re not following the program right. Take for example the use of onions, garlic, and dill, which will provide tons of flavor to the cakes without veering off the path of Paleo perfection. They top this off by adding in the right seasonings to bring out the flavor of the fish without overpowering it. Just a bit of paprika and cumin gets the job done, and these salmon cakes deserve a spot on your regular menu.
6. Bacon-Wrapped Mini Salmon Cakes with Asparagus
These mini salmon cakes are sure to please because they’re wrapped in bacon. Most diet plans out there won’t allow you to wrap things in bacon, especially not a fish like salmon. But on Paleo you’re allowed reasonable portions of bacon, and they will definitely add a twist to salmon cakes that you don’t often see. These are served up with asparagus spears wrapped right into the bacon, so it’s like you’re getting the classic serving of salmon and asparagus with the added bonus of bacon.
