Salmon Meatballs with Dijon Lemon Sauce

Salmon Meatballs with Dijon Lemon Sauce {Low-Carb, Keto & Grain-Free}I can’t even fathom that I now have 2 amazing recipes for Salmon Meatballs here on HSITK! My latest recipe for Salmon Meatballs with Garlic Lemon Cream Sauce only happened because I had ground wild caught salmon but not capers – so I couldn’t make my wildly popular Salmon Meatballs with Caper Dill Tarter Sauce.

I love it when I’m forced to be creative in the kitchen!

Even if it is by force 🙂

  1. This is awesome! I made it with coconut milk and pre-packed frozen salmon meatballs from IKEA (like a cheater) and it was so fast and delicious. Thank you!

  2. I am going to try these with canned salmon…..please is anyone has, let me know so I can learn from you. also I will post how mine turn out…

      1. Terese – Good to know! Of course, everything tastes better when you use fresh ingredients, but other than the salmon, all the other ingredients are things I have on hand at any given moment. With salmon in the cupboard, this can be a last minute go to meal! Thanks for letting us know!

  3. hi,
    can you make these with canned salmon? because i only have frozen salmon on hand and i have no idea how itll turn out after thawing

    1. You are welcome to try adapting the recipe how ever you’d prefer. I personally don’t think they will turn out the same, cooked salmon used in the meatballs will make them more like salmon patties.

    1. I purchase my salmon already ground but you can grind it with a meat grinder or gently pulse in your food processor. You don’t want it to become mushy just tiny bits.

      1. They were delicious! I ended up pulsing (about 15 secs) together the salmon, chives, and cooked onion and garlic. The food processor did a great job of mixing everything then I added the remaining ingredients in a bowl to make the meatballs. Thank you for the easy and yummy recipe!
