Salmon Patties with Green Peas


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!
