Teriyaki Salmon Patties with Grilled Pineapple

 


Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs fresh wild caught salmon (2-3 cups flaked)
  • ½ cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh chives, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated
  • 4 large garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. toasted sesame seed oil
  • 2 Tbsp. Sprouts Brand Apple cider Vinegar
  • 4 Tbsp. coconut aminos
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • Sprouts Brand Coconut Oil
  • 1-2 cups sliced pineapple, grilled
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Cilantro for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven broiler on high.
  2. Cook the salmon fillet on a baking sheet just until cooked and easily flakes, about 15-20 minutes.
  3. Using two forks, flake the salmon away from the skin and put into a food processor.
  4. To the food processor add the herbs, garlic, oil, vinegar, coconut aminos, egg and salt.
  5. Pulse the food processor to combine and chop all the ingredients together.
  6. The mixture should be slightly moist and hold together well when formed into a patty.
  7. Heat two tsp. coconut oil in a large saute pan over medium heat.
  8. Using a 3-4 oz. scoop, place the mixture into your hands to form a round patty.
  9. Place the patties in the hot pan being careful not to splash yourself with the hot oil.
  10. Add four patties to the pan at a time depending on how big of a pan you use.
  11. Cook until the patties are golden brown on one side about five minutes and carefully flip to cook on the other side until golden, about another five minutes.
  12. Complete the cooking steps until all the patties are cooked.
  13. Serve with grilled pineapple slices, avocado and sprinkle with cilantro.

**Note: these patties can also be cooked in the oven by laying the patties on a lined baking sheet. Cook at 375 degree F for 5-8 minutes, flip them over and cook another 5-8 minutes. They won’t get as brown in the oven, but will be delicious just the same.
