  • 14 3/4 ounce canned salmon drained
  • 2 large pastured eggs
  • 4 tbsp collagen hydrolysate
  • 2 tsp dill weed, dried
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp pink sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp bacon grease


  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except bacon grease. Mix well to combine.
  • Heat bacon grease in a large saute pan over medium-low heat.
  • Divide salmon mixture into four equal parts.
  • Shape each quarter into a patty and gently place in hot grease.
  • Fry for 3-4 minutes, or until the bottom side is golden brown and firm.
  • Gently flip the patties and fry on the other side for 3-4 minutes.
  • Let rest in bacon grease (the patties will absorb some of it!) for about 5 minutes before serving.
