I’ve never been a big fan of seafood, but I do love salmon.

It tastes great. It’s really good for you, and it’s really quick to make.

I’ve recently decided to break my habit of not really trying new things by committing to one recipe a week that I wouldn’t make otherwise.

These salmon cakes are crazy fast to make (less than 15 minutes, y’all!) and they’re great for storing in the fridge for eating later.

Easy meal prep for the win!

One major key to this recipe’s success is the INCREDIBLE Sarayo sauce (affiliate). I used to make my own, and regularly would for recipes like these 5 Minute Spicy Tuna Rolls, but when I got the Sarayo in this month’s Keto Krate (affiliate) the game was changed forever.

Another star of the recipe is the yummy avocado creama that it’s topped with. This adds a delicious and nutritious freshness while upping the fat content of the meal.

One note about this recipe: you can use fresh salmon, and cook that, but it’s not a huge deal for me. I often go for ease, accessibility and convenience over wild caught, free range. You do you!
