1 cup almond meal/flour (or substitute bread crumbs)
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1–2 teaspoons lemon zest
oil for pan-frying (I usually use coconut oil)
If you are using salmon with the skin and bones, mash them together well with a fork in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the oil) and mix it together well.
Cover a large skillet with a thin layer of oil and heat it over medium heat. To make patties, use about 1/4-1/3 cup of the salmon mixture and form it into a patty shape. To make nuggets, use about 1 tablespoon. Cook the cakes/nuggets in the oil, about 5 minutes per side for the cakes, a little less for the nuggets, until they are golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
