Summary: These Coconut Flour Salmon Cakes Gluten free SCD PALEO are a game changer! These gems are way better then traditional restaurant versions AND they eliminate all those filler ingredients like breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, and Worcestershire; see below for why I never use those ingredients! When you open my fridge you’ll often find these salmon cakes for quick grab, but they are totally EASY, eloquent, and redic delic as an appetizer or entree for guests and at holiday celebrations. This recipe uses coconut flour and eggs as binder, and they hold their shape beautifully! They are PALEO, SCD, GAPs, and UMass IBD-AID legal. They are FODMAP and AIP legal with the garlic and onion HACK and other modifications detailed below. Truth be told, we often snack these at the end of the night, with a glass of red wine (a great anti-inflammatory — see here), candle light, and a drizzle of real fermented SCD Dijon Mustard — recipe is on my Pinterest Condiment Board. This is the lifestyle pillar I talk about so often! Hitting your body with safety signals from as many different directions as possible truly FEELS and tastes great!

Coconut Flour Salmon Cakes Gluten free SCD PALEO and the Healing Diets:
PALEO, SCD, GAPs, and UMass IBD-AID: legal as-is. Enjoy!
Garlic and onion: Garlic and onion FODMAPs are not fat soluble therefore you can achieve garlic and onion infusion through the oil. How? Saute garlic and onion slices in the hot coconut oil before adding the patties to fry. Remove the garlic slices prior to frying the patties. Alternatively, use the green parts of spring onion or chives as a replacement for onion.
AIP: In the Savory Spice Blend, omit the paprika and black pepper and instead substitute 1/2 Tbsp ground ginger. For the eggs, omit and try subbing 1/4 cup mashed bananas, plantains, or applesauce and increase coconut flour to about 1/4 cup in order for the patties to hold together. Also see here for other egg substitute ideas.
Why I NEVER use Mayonnaise and Worcestershire Sauce
Most commercial versions of mayo and Worcestershire Sauce contain what I call cheat recipe ingreds because they contain hidden crummy gut harming ingredients. While you certainly can make your own clean whole foods version of mayonnaise and even Worcestershire Sauce, I don’t waste the time since there’s so many ways to substitute for it in recipes.
What’s in commercial mayo that I don’t like?
Lets label decode Hellman’s Real Mayonnaise. Ingredients are: Soybean Oil, Water, Whole Eggs, and Egg Yolks, Vinegar, Salt, Sugar, Lemon Juice, Concentrate Calcium Disodium EDTA (Used to Protect Quality), Natural Flavors. The red colored ingredients are GMO, high Omega-6 rancid pro-inflammatory industrial seed oils or CAFO product, industrial salt which is associated with autoimmunity (in lieu of sea salt), and/or chemicals. Certainly nothing real there.
What’s in commercial Worcestershire Sauce that I don’t like?
Lea & Perrins Original Worcestershire Sauce ingredients are: Distilled white vinegar, anchovies, garlic, molasses, onions, salt, sugar, water, chili pepper extract, cloves, natural flavorings, tamarind extract. The red colored ingredients are GMO, industrial salt (in lieu of sea salt), chemicals, and for molasses, GMO since: “According to U.S. labeling laws, “molasses” simply means the thick syrup byproduct of processing sugar beets or sugar cane. Since 95% of the sugar beets grown in the U.S. are genetically-modified, you want to avoid molasses unless you specifically know that it is from sugarcane.” -From Food Renegade post which label decodes FRENCH’S WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE which is even more loaded with yuck than the Lea & Perrins I highlight!
