Paleo Salmon Patties

This is one meal that my family NEVER complains about!  This makes 8 patties.


  • 2 14oz cans of wild salmon, drained
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 tsp coconut flour
  • coconut oil for frying
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

In large bowl, combine salmon, eggs, onion, garlic, mustard, and all spices.  After mixed well, add coconut flour to thicken it up.  Form into 8 patties.  Over medium heat, melt enough coconut oil to have around 1/4 inch in pan.  Place a couple of patties in the pan, allow them to brown on one side before flipping (~5-6 minutes), flip and cook on the other side until brown.   I like to serve these with dill mayo-  Just mix a little dill weed into some mayo, easy peasy! Enjoy!!


Paleo Brussel Sprouts

These are one of my family’s favorites!


  • 2lbs fresh whole brussel sprouts, stem trimmed and halved
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Melt oil in pan on medium heat.  Add sprouts, salt and pepper.  Cover, stirring occasionally, for around 10 minutes.  Then remove cover and continue to cook for around 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until starting to brown.  Enjoy!  This is a big recipe, you can definitely cut it in half if you are not as much of a brussels fan as we are!
