When I first started on AIP I used to get so frustrated when I would watch the Food Network…so many things I could no longer have.  I won’t lie…I pouted for a while.  But then, as I started easing in to it, I became inspired.  Shows like Iron Chef, Beat Bobby Flay, even Guy’s Grocery…

So far, I’ve used this inside stuffed chicken, over a breakfast hash and later today, I plan on thinning some out with some more EVOO…

I have been experimenting with trying to make the perfect salmon cake for a while now…pre-AIP, I loved them!  But, without eggs and bread crumbs…alas, I was constantly disappointed.  Until now!  These are very crispy and creamy.  Don’t let the ugly photo fool you…I seasoned mine with sumac, which if you’re not familiar, tastes like…
