That is the brand I use and I've really enjoyed it....but then I just ordered and got mine in March and this is the first coconut flour I've ever used so I don't have anything to compare it to.

The first time I made them I kept adding eggs directly to the coconut flour until I got a consistency of fluffy mashed potatoes...that way I would know for sure how many eggs to use. It took 8 eggs to get there...you might try that next time...and I did mix mine by hand.
Yes, I used 1/4 cup of coconut flour and 4 eggs and the large size ( around 400g) can of salmon which I did drain but I will mix by hand next time. Definitely will attempt these again, don't worry. They are so tasty.

It seems strange that mixing it in the food processor would make that much difference but that is the only thing that was different.

I used Bob's Red Mill Coconut flour and it turned out just fine. It wasn't too wet and my patties didn't fall apart. My son ate the last one yesterday, I was able to make 7 smaller cakes. He likes them, so they are a winner!!

I've been trying to find a way to add more Salmon into my diet. I love fish, sadly Salmon comes in as my least favorite... BUT these Salmon cakes how YUMMY.. I do like Salmon I do!!!!

That being said, for those of you who are on the line, like I was, be sure to buy WILD caught salmon... the taste is FAR superior to farm raised(which I do not like at all).

The brand I used is Sea Natural and it was Sockeye.

I can't believe I ate 2 :blush:these cakes are seriously large!!

Costco now carries wild salmon in tuna sized cans. 6 cans for about $9. I must make these and serve them with The Chicken Lady's cornbread recipe on another thread.

bumping this up because I made these salmon patties for lunch and they are just so good! Thanks for a really good recipe Chicken Lady!

I used Bob's Red Mill coconut flour, just scooped not sifted. I 1/2'd the recipe because my can of salmon was 7.5 oz. I used 2 TBS coconut flour, 2 eggs and added a bunch of different seasonings because I didn't have old bay and whisked until it was the consistency of instant mashed potatoes. I just mixed in the salmon with a fork (mine was the wild red salmon from TJ's). These held together extremely well, the ground popcorn coating was a nice addition too! I'm going to make crab cakes with this recipe soon, this base would be wonderful with any kind of fish. Thanks again!

Old Bay is a seasoning mix you find in the spice section. I think it is a rectangular can. Google the name and I bet an image will come up.

Kristina, I found this recipe for Old Bay Seasoning if you want to go to all of the work LOL May be easier just to buy the can itself. I know I wouldn't have all of the ingredients on hand.

1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
4 dried bay leaves
1 teaspoon cardamom seed
1 teaspoon mustard seeds (optional)
1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
1 teaspoon Hungarian paprika
1/4 teaspoon mace or 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt

Directions:

1 Mix spices well (use a pestle and mortar or your coffee dried herb & spice grinder).
2 Of course, as always, the measurements are not written in stone; you will probably want to change the amounts of each ingredient to suit your tastes.

I am trying these too. I have lots of Salmon and Cod in the freezer, but I think I'll start with a can of salmon. My Old Bay came in a round container. I asked for "old spice" at the grocstore . . . that's aftershave. Good grief. Nice people figured out what I was looking for. It wasn't in the spice section for some reason.

Yes, 213g is 7 1/2 ounces so you could use two cans to get the right amount of salmon for this recipe or just make 1/2 a recipe using one can.

don't have any popcorn

I love salmon croquettes and really want to try these tomorrow. But, we don't keep a kernel of popcorn in the house. Wonder if parm cheese could be use for the coating. I'll try and see what happens.

This is surely a winner. I did a light dusting with canned parm and fried in rice bran oil. Wow! DH loved the things. They'll become a regular on our menu rotation. The coconut flour was just what I needed in my croquettes.

I made them

Just recently. For those who feel that the 'red' salmon is too strong,
as I do. Look for Bear Brand pink salmon from Costco. It's smaller
tins but so delicious you could eat it right out of the can.

My patties were too dense with the coconut flour.
Next time I'll loosen up the batter with a bit more liquid.
Very good.

i use a little almond flour for the coating and works good, but i bet a little parm cheese mixed in the flour would give it a nice flavor----will have to try this week, now i am hungry for salmon patties with some mashed cauliflower--goes great together----

These are awesome. I also made a creamy lemon dill sauce that was so good. It was just sour cream, juice of one lemon, 1 Tablespoon dried dill and some fresh cracked black pepper. YUMMMMMMM
