Gluten Free Pistachio Salmon Cakes Recipe

This recipe includes two delicious and nutritious superfood ingredients: salmon and pistachios.

Salmon – This pink fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which has been shown to reduce cardiovascular disease. It is also a great source of protein, with around 20 grams for a 4-ounce serving!

Pistachios – While other nuts usually steal the spotlight, did you know that a 1-ounce serving of pistachios contains as much potassium as a banana?! They’re also high in protein and fiber, and recent research has shown that they can lower LDL (bad cholesterol) while upping antioxidant levels.

  • 1 pound salmon
  • ounces shelled pistachios finely ground
  • cup almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place salmon on a baking sheet and cook for 20-25 minutes, until the center is no longer translucent and the fish flakes well. Place in a bowl and, with a fork, flake the fish into small pieces. Allow to cool to room temperature. Add remaining ingredients and stir well. Refrigerate for 1 hour (this is not necessary but helps when forming the cakes).
  • Using a measuring cup, scoop some of the mixture into your hand and form into a patty. Repeat until you have 6 equal-sized patties, or until the mixture is gone. Place cakes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping gently halfway through.
