Salmon cakes I have always known about. It’s the low carb shrimp cakes that came new to me. They were far more work. I don’t mind a more difficult recipe for the flavor, but I don’t always feel like it. To add, what makes these great is no chopping if you use wild caught salmon straight out of the can.

A few things my grandmother use to make while I was growing up was corn bread, banana pudding, devil’s food cake and salmon cakes. In honesty, it’s the one recipe my mother could perfectly duplicate of hers.

I would soak them down in hot sauce. Maybe too much hot sauce really. But, they were so good! They had a cripiness that I remember as fresh as tasting these.

After these, walnut salmon is dead for me. Life is about progression I don’t digress here. So, let us adapt and move on to something far bigger and better!

Wild caught salmon is a must over farm raised. I didn’t know until I actually looked for it but wild caught comes in the can as well. The only thing is I think they toss the entire salmon in there. Better yet I know because there were so many hidden bones in the can I couldn’t deal.

Grandma didn’t tell me that!

A small price to pay for not having to cook the salmon first. See to buy it fresh is always a great idea. Yet, you have to cook the salmon down first then shred it. The canned just allows you to save on the double cooking step.

I added a little cayenne pepper for a hint of spiciness at the end. You don’t feel it while eating the salmon but give it minute. After a few chews with you swallowing that tongue will begin to tingle.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a tasty way to get more fish into your diet here it is. It’s said we should have fish weekly and salmon is one of the most nutrition filled choices. A great blend of spices to provide a little heat and herbs to bring them down. I like shrimp but I like them better individually. Yet, I have always loved salmon. With my very own low carb salmon cakes I have another recipe in the books!
