Salmon Balls by Primally Inspired (Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free)
  • 12 ounces canned salmon, drained (I use THIS canned wild-caught salmon)
  • 1 shallot or ¼ cup red onion, finely diced
  • 1 egg
  • ½ lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 tablespoon green onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill or basil, chopped
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fat of choice for greasing (olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, etc. - I use THIS avocado oil)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients, except your fat of choice (oil) together in a bowl until well incorporated.
  3. Form into 1-2 inch balls (makes about 20 balls).
  4. Add your fat of choice to a baking pan and then place your salmon balls on the pan. Lightly roll the salmon balls in the oil so they get coated.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes and enjoy!
We love to eat these with an easy homemade dipping sauce!
Add 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs (I usually use dill and/or basil) to ⅓ cup mayo (HERE is my really easy, 30 second homemade mayo recipe). You can also use sour cream or Greek yogurt in place of the mayo.
