Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 small skinless sweet potato, baked*
  • 3 (6 oz.) cans salmon, drained
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce or Sriracha
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Buns, salad greens, large lettuce leaves for wrapping


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Use a fork to poke holes into the potato and set on the baking sheet. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool, and peel off skin.
  3. Keep oven on at 425°F and put a new sheet of parchment on baking sheet.
  4. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and using your hands, mix thoroughly. Shape into 4-ounce patties - about 3 inches in diameter and 1 inch tall. Arrange patties on the tray so there is at least 1 inch of space between them.
  5. Place in oven and bake 15-20 minutes or until no longer soft, flipping halfway through. Remove from oven and serve on a toasted bun, a bed of salad greens, or a lettuce wrap.
