Since fish fillets don't always come in perfectly pre-measured packages, this is a great recipe to use up your leftover cooked salmon. Using almond flour helps keep these salmon cakes low-carb, and the grilled asparagus and avocado lime puree add light, fresh flavors to round out this quick and satisfying meal.

Ingredients

  • 5 oz salmon, smoked
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 dash table salt
  • ½ cup asparagus
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fat-free mayonnaise
