Cooking time




  • 3 to 4 green onions,

  • 1 large handful fresh cilantro

  • 1 to 2 tsp. lemon zest

  • ½ tsp. sea salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 to 1 ½ pounds raw wild salmon, skinned and deboned

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa

  • Olive oil or coconut oil for pan frying


  • Using a food processor fitted with the “s” blade process the green onions, cilantro, lemon zest, salt, and black pepper until it is finely minced. Add the salmon and quinoa and process again until desired consistency – leaving some chunks of salmon.
  • Form into 6 patties and place onto a plate.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat.
  • Add a tablespoon or so of oil and place a few patties in the skillet. If your pan is hot it should only take 2 to 3 minutes per side to cook. If your pan is not quite heated it will take about 5 minutes per side and they may stick a little.
