Paleo Mushroom Salmon Patties and Homemade Emerils

These heart-shaped salmon patties exceeded my expectations in flavor and texture.  They were moist with a perfect balance of spice.  I should not have been surprised as hearts make everything better 

Mushroom Salmon Patties
Makes 2-3 patties

Ingredients: salmon fillet {boneless,skinless, and wild-caught if possible}, onions, garlic cloves, mushrooms, broccoli, Dijon mustard, kale, salt, tomatoes, smoked paprika, Emerils, coconut flour, olive oil, and butter/ghee

First, sauté in a small skillet with olive oil:
•1/4 cup chopped onion

Then add:
•1 finely chopped garlic clove
•2 finely chopped mushrooms
•1/4 cup finely chopped broccoli
•1/8 cup finely chopped kale

Cook covered on medium heat for 5-7 minutes

While cooking pulse your salmon fillet in a food processor until ground up, approx. 5 seconds. 

Then mix together in bowl:

•The ground up salmon
•Cooked vegetables
•1 tsp Dijon mustard
•1 egg white {or whole egg if doubling the recipe}
•1/8 tsp salt
•1/2 tsp smoked paprika {or regular}
•1 tsp Homemade Emerils {recipe is below}
•1/2 Tbsp coconut flour
•1/8 cup chopped tomatoes

Form into 2 medium or 3 small salmon patties {heart-shape optional }. Cook in the skillet over medium in a mixture of olive oil and butter/ghee for 2-4 minutes on each side.

Then enjoy as a burger or w/ cauliflower rice.  Usually I like to add ketchup and mustard to my salmon patties, but these were perfect just the way they are!

Homemade Emerils {or Emeril's Essence} is my family's favorite seasoning.  We use it for grilled fish, BBQing steaks, homemade potato wedges, etc.  It is the perfect everyday spice and makes everything delicious.

•2 1/2 Tbsp paprika {smoked or regular}
•2 Tbsp garlic powder

•1 Tbsp dried oregano
•1 Tbsp dried thyme

•2 Tbsp salt

Don't be afraid to sprinkle on anything and everything ;)
