Lemon-Dill Salmon Cakes

Omega-3 rich salmon: the best food for fertility and pregnancy

These salmon cakes achieve all of our dinner time desires; easy, quick, healthy, the whole family loves them and they're packed with naturally-occurring omega-3 fats, making them a superfood for fertility, pregnancy and beyond. 

But, let's be real.

What we really love is that these salmon cakes are crazy-delicious!

They store well in the freezer and pack-well for lunch the next day so make a big batch and feel like a winner.

You got this, mama!

quick easy salmon recipe ideas

Lemon-dill Salmon Cakes (gluten free)


  • 14.75 oz can of salmon (ideally wild caught like this one
  • 1/2 cup capers (drained)
  • 2 tbsp ground lemon-pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 small onion, very finely chopped
  • 2 ribs of celery, very finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp coconut flour (this makes the recipe gluten free, but you can substitute any kind of flour on hand). 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup fresh dill, lightly chopped + 2 tbsp fresh dill for garnish 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or butter for pan-searing 
  • Optional toppings: Plain yogurt, fresh chives & lemon juice


  1. In a large bowl break the salmon up with a fork and mix in all of the remaining ingredients except the cooking oil and 2 tbsp of fresh dill. Mix thoroughly. 
  2. Set your burner to medium high and add ~1 tbsp oil or butter to a large skillet (I like using a toxin-free non stick pan).
  3. With your hands (yes, it gets messy!) shape into ~14 patties, roughly 2" wide. 
  4. Add the patties to your pan and cook until the sides are golden brown, roughly 3 - 4 minutes on each side. It usually takes 2-3 batches, depending on the size of your pan.
  5. Top with plain yogurt, chives a squeeze of lemon and fresh dill.

I always make extra patties and freeze them for a later date when batch cooking just didn't happen that week.

Why not plan for a future that's a little easier and a little more delicious?! 

Hope you love them!
