Wild Salmon Patties with Aioli Sauce

Wild Salmon Patties with Aioli Sauce

This month, we’re all about sustainable seafood! To go along with our “Should I Eat Fish?” blog, we asked our Senior Dietitian Lisa Dreher to put together a recipe for you. Here is a different and tasty way to get more omega-3 rich seafood into your diet.

Yields 10 patties


  • 1-pound fresh wild sustainable salmon OR 16oz wild sustainable canned salmon
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3-4 green onions, minced
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 large pastured eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil, divided


Aioli sauce:

  • ¾ cup avocado oil mayonnaise (see above)
  • 1 pastured egg
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp mustard powder
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce (optional)



  1. If using fresh salmon, preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and continue to step 2. If using canned salmon, skip steps 1, 2, and 3.
  2. Drizzle salmon with avocado oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 10 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. Cool in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes.
  4. While cooling, heat 1 tbsp avocado oil on a pan and sauté the onion for 5 minutes, then add green onions and sauté for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  5. Use hands to remove skin and flake the salmon. In a large bowl, add the cooled vegetables, dill, mustard, garlic, almond flour, and eggs. Combine with hands until well mixed. Form into 10 patties and put aside.
  6. Heat remaining avocado oil in a large pan on medium heat and cook each patty for 3-4 minutes per side. Let sit for a few minutes.
  7. Dip in aioli sauce or guacamole and serve with a large colorful salad! Enjoy!


If you’re having trouble finding a good source of salmon, we highly recommend Vital Choice.
