Easy Baked Salmon Patties Recipe: A Healthy & Nutritious Gluten-free Dinner

Salmon is one of the healthiest proteins you can eat for lunch or dinner. And salmon patties are one of the easiest meals you can prepare for your family. This baked salmon patties recipe is healthier than most because it also has vitamin-rich sweet potatoes, fresh herbs and is made with almond flour, so it's a gluten-free recipe.

For this healthy salmon patty recipe you'll need canned salmon, mashed sweet potatoes, an egg, almond flour, green onions, fresh parsley, fresh dill and smoked paprika. The ingredients are mixed together, formed into patties and baked until hot and slightly crisp on the outside. Quick and easy!

If you don't cook with almond flour, you could use whatever flour you like. If you're not sure about canned salmon, we have some tips on cooking with canned salmon for you. Serve these baked salmon cakes for dinner with a vegetable and a side salad. If you have to dip those salmon patties, make some homemade tartar sauce.
