  • 2 cans Safe Catch Wild Pink Salmon, drained (I used the one with no added salt)
  • 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup yellow onion, finely minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons avocado oil, ghee or cooking oil of choice


  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • With clean hands or a spoon, mix the ingredients together until everything is evenly blended.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Using a heaping tablespoon or a small cookie scoop, portion out the salmon mixture. Form portions into balls and slightly flatten a bit before adding them to the hot skillet.
  • Cook each side for about 5 minutes or until a crust starts to form and popper firmly holds together.
  • Enjoy warm with your favorite dipping sauce (I love them with ranch dressing) or store cooled leftovers in fridge for up to 4 days.


  • The Omega-3 essential fatty acids found in oily fish like salmon help to protect those lovely brain cells of ours!
  • They have also been found to improve cognitive function in infants and children!
  • Plus salmon is an amazing source of protein, potassium, and B vitamins.
