Salmon cakes with Spicy yogurt sauce

So salmon is something that we eat on a regular basis at our house,  I love it, its my absolute favorite fish ever! Normally I just pan sautee it with butter and spices but today the thought was a bit boring!  So I decided to give salmon cakes a try! They turned out pretty good and hubby loved them and since his enjoyment is how I decided what recipes to post, here is the latest. I hope everyone likes it! ♡

Salmon cakes with spicy yogurt sauce

Salmon cakes

1 lb salmon filets
1 med avocado
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
2 eggs
2 tbs coconut flour (you can use a different flour if you like)
1 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs dill
1 tbs parsley
1/2 tbs garlic powder
1/2 tbs red pepper flakes
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

In a medium pan cook up the salmon filets so you can pull them apart with a fork in to smallish chunks.  In a bowl mix up the yogurt, eggs, coconut flour, spices and lemon juice well. Add the salmon and mix together. Chop up the avocado into smallish chunks and mix all together. It's a bit on the wet side so I used a measuring cup to scoop 1/3 cup portions out onto a well buttered cookie sheet and flattened into inch thick rounds.  Bake at 350 for 15 -20 minutes till cooked through (ones in picture were served bottom side up) when still hot brush with a bit of butter.

Spicy yogurt sauce

1/2 cup 0%  Greek yogurt
1-2 tbs hot sauce (depends on how hot you like it)
1/2 tsp dill
1/2 tsp parsley
Salt to taste

Mix all up in a bowl or container and serve over the salmon cakes!

The green beans in the picture are just frozen green beans sauteed in a tbs of butter with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.  I like them when they start getting brown bits! ;)
Well I hope everyone enjoys the recipe as much as me and hubby!  ♡
