Keto, whole30 and paleo air fryer salmon cakes recipe!
This salmon cakes are very healthy by its own. This recipe is low carb and fits most of low carb diets.
If you are looking for a good quality salmon with most nutrients and health benefits, use wild caught fish. I usually just buy a whole salmon fillet(or even a whole fish), then slice it in portions and freeze.
You can get a good quality fish at big fish markets or get it already frozen to avoid farmed raised salmon.( “Atlantic salmon” is farmed as well, just FYI)
Can i use frozen salmon?
Of course you do. If you are making salmon patties, you will need to defrost the fish first and then cut it very well or mince to make cakes.
You can even make a lot of salmon cakes at once and freeze them for later use
Also you can use different fish to make this fish cakes:
But our favorite is salmon! Patties comes out juicy and tender each time!
You can eat them just like that or use it as a patty for a burger. Add some fries and call it a meal!Great for a party!
I used sliced lemon under the salmon cakes to prevent them from sticking to the air fryer basket. It also add an extra flavor that nothing can beat.
How long do you cook salmon patties in air fryer?
The process of cooking salmon is very simple. Usually it takes about 7 minutes to fully cook your fillet or cake, but i depend on a thickness of a piece.
Maybe you will need to adjust the time by 1 minute!
How to serve air fryer salmon cakes
Step1. Make a stack! Top it with sour cream or coconut cream or yogurt ( just a whole30 option). Well, we like it with sour cream and chopped dill.
Step2. Just put all the patties on a wooden board or a parchment paper and serve with a side dip( could be anything- from spicy aioli to sour cream with dill or just about anything)
Step3. Serve it in a burger! Great option for a party.

I’m not sure if this goes with your diet, I’m not on it. But ground Salmon and Miso Soup mix is truly made in Heaven. I can’t have lemon or egg. I’ve tried it several ways with crackers, very few. Crush Tofu, chop Leek up small, Always extra Garlic. Salmon is very forgiving. And if you’ve never used it before, it’s very moist. Air fryers are truly wondrous, frying in olive oil is good. Enjoy it, I do!!! 😉
