Baked Salmon Patties with Chia Seed
Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

Chia seeds are supposed to be one of nature's super foods with 3100 mg of Omega-3 and 1050mg of Omega-6 and high in dietary fiber. They are recommended for diabetics. Although I am not diabetic, I use diabetic recipes for great low-carb choices. This recipe is modified from a dlife recipe. I only use Alaska wild caught salmon, and I drain it and remove the skin pieces so the numbers I've put in may not be totally accurate.
