Sesame-Crusted Salmon Cakes

Updated: Mar 17

Full of fertility-boosting foods and progesterone-boosting seeds, this recipe is a go-to for patients trying to conceive!! This recipe can be enjoyed by everyone, but it is especially beneficial for those who are struggling with adrenal fatigue, infertility, low progesterone in women, and low testosterone in men.

Wild salmon and organic eggs are two main fertility-friendly foods that are paired with ginger and scallion to warm the womb. Sesame seeds are great for boosting progesterone naturally in the luteal phase of the cycle (from ovulation to the last day of the cycle). This recipe is absolutely delicious and full of flavor to boot!


  • 2 packs of 5 oz. wild-caught pink salmon, drained

  • 2 organic eggs, beaten

  • ¼ cup gluten-free panko breadcrumbs + ¼ cup saved on side

  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce

  • 2 TBSP chopped scallion

  • 2 cloves minced garlic

  • ½ tsp minced ginger or ginger paste

  • pinch of black pepper

  • ½ tsp sea salt

  • 1 TBSP ghee

  • ½ TBSP black sesame seeds

  • ½ TBSP white sesame seeds


  • In a large bowl, mix together the salmon, eggs, ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs, worcestershire sauce, scallion, garlic, ginger, black pepper and sea salt.

  • Shape the ingredients and roll into 5 balls.

  • In a small bowl combine ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs with black and white sesame seeds.

  • Roll each, one at a time, into breadcrumb and sesame seed mix until both sides are coated and flatten into a patty shape.

  • Heat ghee in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Gently place the patties onto the heated skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side until golden brown.

  • Serve as is or cut in half and stuff into a corn tortilla and top with avocado mayonnaise.

This looks great and I like the fact that you specify 'wild salmon' because most farmed salmon (if not all of it) is a GMO in the U.S. (The color of GMO salmon is actually gray and they add dies to turn it pink. Yuck!) Thank you for specifying wild salmon.
