gluten-free-salmon-patties

Growing up one of my favorite meals was salmon patties with a side of steamed broccoli (dripping with butter) and a large serving of creamy mac n’ cheese.

No one could make this meal as well as my grandma could! I so looked forward to a sleep-over at my grandparent’s house, because I knew the arrangement always would include the question: “What do you want to have for dinner?

Why, salmon patties of course!”

I make salmon patties for my family now and this recipe is similar to my grandmother’s… but healthier. I choose to fry my patties using coconut or olive oil instead of the nasty by-product my grandparents were raised on: CriscoEver wonder the story about how they invented that stuff?

These patties are a wonderful way to encourage your children to eat fish and provide a terrific source of Omega-3s and Vitamin D; the inclusion of dried alfalfa provides further nutritive benefits. Furthermore, using cooked quinoa instead of break crumbs makes these a gluten-free meal option while also contributing to their outer crispiness.


Salmon patties are a great last-minute meal idea if your previous dinner plans fall through.
 Not that I have any experience with this of courseYah, right.

Maybe these salmon patties will become a new favorite for your kids… or a memory-in-the-making for your grandchildren, like they have for me. At any rate, I’m a firm believer that you just can’t go wrong with salmon patties and I hope these find a place at your table soon!

Enjoy!
