  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa I used red for this recipe because I liked the color
  • 1 medium sweet potato boiled and mashed
  • 1 6 oz can wild salmon (skinless and boneless if possible)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 green onions minced
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free cornmeal
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Oil for cooking


  • Add all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix with a wooden spoon (or your hands!) until everything is combined and a dough has formed.
  • Form the dough into 6 patties, place on a plate and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a 10" skillet over medium heat. Saute the salmon cakes for 3 - 5 minutes per side, until browned, crispy and heated through.
  • Serve warm with your desired dipping sauce (we used guacamole with sriracha mixed in)
  • Enjoy!
