“While I’m in Paris” will feature guest posts from seven different ladies. Each post will have a unique twist, but a common love for Parisian and French culture! I hope you’ll enjoy this series while I galavant around the city of Paris, and we can all pretend we’re together. Make sure to show these girls some love by commenting below and visiting their blogs!
Hi y’all! My name is Tania, and I blog over at “The Mama Mantras” and “Confessions of a Life Addict”.
I’m so excited to be guest posting for Jenna while she is away gulping in the beautiful Parisian air!! Ah! Paris! Tu as pris mon coeur et tu me manques tellement! Hubby and I visited Paris for the first time in Nov. 2010 as my « babymoon »
[you can’t really tell but I’m 6 months preggo here]
Since then I can’t wait to go back! Mostly because I got my first LV from the beautiful Champs-Elysee but also because its such a breathtaking city! Next time I go I am DEFINITELY heading back to catch the Louvre since it was closed on our visit! In the meantime I will be concocting delish Parisian fare in the comfort of my kitchen for the fam to enjoy as we pretend we are chatting away in fluent French (hubs and I took French in high school so we randomly try to practice. But mostly we fail at it and sound like we are learning to talk for the first time).
One dish with French flair that I LOVE is salmon croquettes. So, when Jenna asked if anyone was down to guest post, I figured I could come up with a Paleo version either on my own or with the help of my trusty high-speed. The high-speed did not disappoint and I found this AMAZING recipe for Gluten-free Paleo Salmon Croquettes by A Girl Worth Saving. I tweaked the process a bit, but all-in-all I feel it turned out well. They definitely were not as pretty as hers, but BOY were they delicious!!
Gluten Free Paleo Salmon Croquettes
Adapted from A Girl Worth Saving
Prep time: 5 mins (it takes me WAY longer to dice so, I would say 15)
Cook time: 10 mins
Total time: 15 mins (factor in the extra dicing time and its up to 25)
- 1 6 oz. Can of Boneless and Skinless Salmon
(I use bags, which are 5 oz. )
- 1/2 of a medium onion, diced
- 1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. of Coconut Flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 rib of celery, diced
- 1 tbsp of dried dill
- 1 tsp of lemon pepper
- 1/4 tsp of Sea Salt
- 3 tbsp of coconut oil
My patties definitely did not look like “croquettes” at first. I think the1 oz. difference between canned salmon and bagged salmon really is in meat and not juice! Mine were a bit more mushy, but they stuck together once I started browning them.
My final product was a bit more brown than golden, so I might try a slightly lower temperature on my glasstop, but as mentioned before SO tasty! I hope you enjoy them!
