  • 1 14 ounce can of salmon
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon psyllium husk powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ cup onion (finely diced)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup avocado (cubed)
  • Salt to taste


  • In a large mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients for the salmon patties.
  • Mix the ingredients, using the back of the spoon to mash the avocado cubes against the side of the bowl if necessary.
  • Once the ingredients are well-combined, place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
  • After chilling, divide the mixture into 6 equal portions, then shape each one into a small patty, about ½ an inch to 1 inch thick.
  • Heat butter or oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the patties and cook for 5 – 7 minutes per side until golden and cooked through.
