Salmon Patties with Cucumber Dipping Sauce (Keto, Low Carb, Gluten Free)

Kate APosted by

Gluten free and keto salmon patties with cucumber dipping sauce – I didn’t make any major new year’s resolutions this year, but I did want to incorporate more seafood into my diet. Salmon is one of my favorite types of fish. Salmon is high in omega-3’s, minerals, B vitamins and protein. While fresh salmon is my first pick, it’s not always in the budget. Wild-caught canned salmon is reasonably priced and tastes great in this recipe. Most of them do come with a small backbone, so make sure to pick that out before mixing ingredients.

I eat these on their own for lunch but they’re delicious over a bed of salad greens, with the sauce as a dressing, or paired with some steamed vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 1 14.5 ounce can of wild caught Salmon, drained and bones removed (if there are any).
  • ¼ cup finely crushed pork rinds (should be about 1 cup before crushing)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 green onions diced
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 tablespoons avocado oil

Cucumber dipping sauce:

  • 1 medium cucumber, diced
  • 2 heaping tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 heaping tablespoons sour cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

If you haven’t already, crush your pork rinds and chop your green onion. Put all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and combine together.

Pour your oil into your pan, I prefer a cast iron pan for this, and set it on medium heat. Let the oil heat up while you form your patties. You can make them as small or as big as you’d like, mine are between 2-3 inches.

Once the oil is hot, put your patties on at least 1 inch apart so you can flip them easily.

Cook until they are golden brown on each side, which should take 5-7 minutes per side.

Once they are cooked, set aside and let them cool a bit. Take the time to put together the sauce. Chop your cucumber if you haven’t already, and then mix everything together.

You can serve the sauce on the side for dipping or on top.  Enjoy!
