Paleo Salmon Cakes with Garlic-Dill Sauce


Give the ultimate upgrade to that can of salmon that’s been sitting in your pantry. Not only does using the canned version save time in the kitchen, but these colorful cakes taste just as fresh as if you’d flaked the salmon yourself. Crispy on the outside and full of omega-3-rich fish, tender veggies and flavorful spices, they’re a surprisingly elegant – and nutritious – meal. Top each with a dollop of garlic-dill sauce and feel free to eat until you’re stuffed to the gills.
