I finally got around to doing one. :) (Click here for all of the food posts… all Diabetes Friendly)
I have made ‘broiled’ salmon patties many times based on this crab cake recipe from MarksDailyApple, “Primal Crab Cakes” but this time I added a little twist… I grilled them. :)
** Note: I’ll restate this below but the key is properly lubricating the grill. I use a metal wire brush and scrub with Olive Oil. I also only turned the salmon patties once. I was anxious to see if this would turn out okay, IT WAS SO EASY!

28 oz of Salmon (any fish or seafood would work)
3 tbs of onion
3 tbs of celery
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. Chop up the vegetables – I cut up 1/2 of a small onion and one celery stalk. However, I only added 3 tbs of each to the mixture.
2. Place the salmon in a large mixing bowl, chop coarsely and add two eggs. Mix well with a large spoon. Add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Prepare the grill. I pour a small amount of olive oil in a saucer. Dipping a wire brush scrub brush I clean and lubricate the grill well at the same time.
4. Patty the salmon … while the grill is warming up. Place lightly on the grill.
5. Cook patties - I cooked these about 7 minutes per side. ONLY TURN ONCE to make sure the patties stay intact. These did not stick at all.
6. EAT! These turned out so well!!! I was relieved. I was worried they would stick but as you can see, they did not.
I ate these with cheese and jalapenos … next time I’ll use my favorite slaw recipe. Here is my “Primal Slaw” post. :)
Note: You can braise these in a skillet or in the oven as well.
There really is NO EXCUSE for eating a ‘high carb’ meal. There are so many low carb paleo options.
If you want to make your favorite dish ‘paleo’, chances are there is a way. Simply google “paleo” with your favorite food.
Say no to the high carb, grain based meals promoted by the American Diabetes Association.
There is a better way. :)
