Salmon cakes have become a new family favorite. They’re healthy, delicious, and easy to make – just combine cooked salmon, mayo, capers, parsley, and plantain chips, with eggs and coconut flour to bind everything together.
Consuming wild seafood and sea vegetables 2-3 times a week is a smart way to get the necessary iodine into our diets. The thyroid relies on iodine to make thyroid hormones, so it’s very important we get iodine from natural sources each week.
Whenever I bring up the topic of iodine, I’m asked if it’s ok to take or eat iodine when diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. Kim Schuette, CN, and I tackle this topic in one of our recent “Thyroid in Five” videos over on Facebook. I think you’ll find our answer very interesting!
Most salmon cake recipes call for breadcrumbs, so I substituted with plantain chips that are ground down to crumbs. If you have other recipes you want to convert to grain-free, plantain “crumbs” are a great substitute.
These salmon cakes have so much flavor they don’t need a sauce, and they make for great leftovers!
