1⁄3 cup
canned pumpkin
2
eggs
3 tablespoons
coconut flour (or 4 tablespoons)
1⁄4 teaspoon
salt
1⁄4 teaspoon

chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, cilantro, basil, dill (optional, to taste)
 
chopped garlic (optional, adds flavor)
2 teaspoons
dried herbs (if not using fresh)
Yields:
Patties

Instructions

Drain and mash canned fish to incorporate the bones. Mix in pureed pumpkin, and then coconut flour one tablespoon at a time. Add chopped garlic and herbs if using. Beat in the eggs.

Mix well until batter is tick enough to form into patties. If batter is too runny, add 1 tbsp more coconut flour.

Form into 5-6 balls, and press until about 1-inch thick patties. Can use parchment paper for ease.

Pan fry in oil over medium heat, 3-4 minutes per side
