Canned salmon is great in egg scrambles and salads, but here’s a way to get a hot meal out of the convenient food.

Salmon cakes are a great way to enjoy canned salmon warm.

  • 1 8-oz. can salmon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs. chopped chives
  • 1 Tbs. Trader Joe’s hot sauce
  • 1-2 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbs. unsweetened coconut
  • coconut oil for frying

Heat a frying pan with enough coconut oil for a shallow fry. Mix all the other ingredients together. Use about 1/4 cup of the mixture at a time to form patties. Once the oil is hot enough, drop the patties into the pan and fry for a couple minutes on each side, until they’re browned up and cooked through.

Dipping sauce

  • 1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise
  • 1 chopped pickle
  • a shake each of onion powder, garlic powder, paprika

Mix it all together, serve with warm salmon patties.
