So it turns out having to go Gluten-Free isn’t as bad as I had originally thought! These insanely delicious salmon cakes are not only paleo, gluten free and low-carb, but they are also incredibly moist and flavorful too! Plus, Scott didn’t even notice that they didn’t have breadcrumbs or eggs in them. Winner! I personally made these with fresh salmon, but you could also use canned salmon (or tuna even) for a quick and easy weeknight dinner.

And to sweeten the deal, they are totally freezer friendly too! Hello easy meal prep!
