Makes 4 servings
Total prep time: 1 hour
1 cup sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
1 pound/450 grams salmon fillet or 1 14.75 oz/400 grams good quality canned salmon, drained
1 onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons scallion
1 large egg, lightly beaten
¼ cup coconut flour or almond flour
sea salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Add water into a pot till just about covers potatoes, then bring to boil. If using fresh, place fish in a steaming tray on top of pot, cover and steam for about 10 minutes, until fish and potatoes are cooked. Alternatively, you can broil the salmon for about 15-20 minutes.
Remove steaming tray and drain potatoes. Flake the salmon with a fork and mash potatoes coarsely. Add rest of ingredients, except lemon. Mix well and form into patties.
Heat oil in a pan over low to medium heat. Cook patties 2-3 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Serve with lemon wedges and a green salad.
