This meal is fast- a whole foods equivalent of boxed macaroni and cheese. One bowl to mix, a pan to fry, and you're ready to eat! I found wild canned salmon at Costco (Kirkland brand) for 9.99 for 3 cans. We used two here, so this is a little more expensive than mac n' cheese, but also much richer in the good fats, calcium, and protein. I served with (heated) frozen peas- my children, who generally like everything, don't eat peas. I blame it on myself for not serving them often enough, and their father who refuses to eat them (which is the reason why I don't serve them often). But I like peas, so we had them with this fast meal.
- Two cans of wild caught salmon
- Two eggs
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut to hold together (and make GAPS friendly) breadcrumbs could also be used.
Use a fork to mix, form into patties with your hands, and fry in palm kernel oil or coconut oil on medium-high heat. Flip once browned, about 5 minutes on each side.
Cost breakdown: About $8 to feed our family of 4. Not too bad!
