Salmon Bacon Broccoli Cakes With A Bacon Dijon Sauce
The closest Whole Foods is about 50 minutes from me, and I have to go over a toll bridge to get there. Needless to say, I’m not able to go every week. But, I do make it over once a month for a stock-up trip. Their 365 Everyday Value brand is a lot more affordable than the groceries by me, plus they have a larger selection – including carrying the only bacon that is safe for me to eat. If you’ve seen my recipes on here, you know how much I love cooking with bacon. So, naturally, I wanted to create a recipe using Whole Food’s 365 Everyday Value brand bacon since that’s my favorite 365 product.
Crab cakes used to be a yummy splurge meal for me. Living here in Maryland, it’s easy to find really delicious ones. Unfortunately I can’t eat shellfish anymore, so I figured I would try making some salmon cakes instead. I put a little twist on them by adding broccoli and bacon. These salmon cakes are A-H-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Plus they are paleo and free of grains and eggs – both of which you typically find in crab cakes.
In this recipe, the 365 brand products I used were their uncured pork bacon, their boneless and skinless wild caught salmon, and their frozen broccoli. All of the products taste fresh and go great together. Another bonus is that the broccoli says Non-GMO Product Verified on it.
Makes 7 large cakes.
2 cans (12 oz) boneless and skinless wild caught salmon
8 oz (½ lb) broccoli
4 slices of bacon
2 cloves of garlic
½ cup almond flour
1 flax egg – 3 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 6 tablespoons water (or use 1 egg)
For The Sauce:
½ cup melted bacon fat
¼ cup + 1 tablespoon dijon mustard – Whole Foods 365 dijon is made with apple cider vinegar instead of corn vinegar.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Cook the bacon, and save the “oil” from it.
- Roast the broccoli and garlic in the oven.
- Make your flax egg and set it aside in a large bowl.
- Put the bacon, broccoli, roasted garlic, and salmon into a food processor and process until each piece is broken up. You can split it into two batches if you need to.
- Dump that mixture into the bowl with the flax egg, then add in the almond flour.
- Form into patties, and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Bake for about 15 minutes. Feel free to flip them over to brown the other side.
- To make the sauce, whisk the melted bacon fat with the mustard.
