My Favorite Paleo Recipes:
Salmon-Crab Croquettes with Spicy Honey Mustard Sauce

evolution rI combined two of my favorite seafood (salmon and crab) into one dish. The seasonings and textures join to provide a tasty meal. Lots of nutrients and trace minerals make this a nutrient-dense main course. I place the croquettes on a bed of greens and avocados and top off with my spicy sauce for a satisfying and Paleo healthy dinner.

  • Place patties on a plate covered with paper towels (this absorbs excess moisture) and place in the refrigerator to chill for about an hour


  • Heat a large pan over medium heat, and add ghee or coconut oil.
  • Add the patties to pan, turn down heat to low, and cook covered until bottoms are browned (about 5 minutes). Turn and cook covered until the other side is brown (about another 5 minutes).
