About Surrender Salmon 

Surrender Salmon is a family owned, fisherman owned small business. Fishing for sustainable, wild salmon in Bristol Bay, Alaska, the Surrender Salmon crew of three then delivers fresh fish to consumers in Minneapolis, and accepts online fish orders from around the nation.

By eating wild salmon, you can avoid eating farmed fish, which are often fed antibiotics and exposed to pesticides. Most farmed fish are kept in extremely close quarters, becoming diseased and highly stressed. These fish can spread disease to wild populations and harm nearby ecosystems. 

Support the movement of sustainably caught, wild salmon by buying from groups like Surrender Salmon. Order online, or find Surrender Salmon in stores around Minneapolis, or at the Minneapolis Farmers Market Annex.

 

 Savory Salmon Cakes 

Ingredients 

  • 1 4-oz can of pink salmon 
  • 1/4 cup Primal Kitchen Mayo 
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup flax meal (split into two 1/4 cup portions) 
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 2 Tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley (chopped) 
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chives (chopped)
  • 2-3 Tbsp tartar sauce 

Instructions

  • Drain the excess liquid from the salmon and flake the fish into a large bowl. Add the Primal Kitchen Mayo, mustard, and egg. 
  • In a small bowl, mix all the fresh herbs together. 
  • Add 4 tablespoons of fresh herbs and 1/4 cup of flax meal to the salmon mixture. Mix to incorporate. 
  • Shape the mixture into four to six cakes. Dust the outside of the cakes with a little more flax meal. 
  • Heat 4 tablespoons of avocado oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. In batches, add the salmon cakes and fry for 3 to 4 min on each side, until browned. Drain on paper towels; keep warm in a preheated oven at 250 degrees. 
  • Serve the cakes with tartar sauce and top with a sprinkle of the remaining fresh herbs.

Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings

Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings

Our Keto Buffalo Wings are every bit as crispy-skinned, tender-on-the-inside, spicy and sexed-up as the most crave-worthy wings out there. We used an AirFryer to get the right texture (no deep-fried bath in cheap seed oils here!), and whipped up a finger-licking-good hot sauce made with our Primal Kitchen Spicy Ketchup to coat the wings.

AirFryer Teriyaki Chicken Wings and Drumsticks

Chicken wings and drumsticks are as Primal, paleo, keto, carnivore and even Whole30 as you can get—if you don’t deep fry them in refined oil or coat them in sugary sauces. Sure, baked chicken wings do the job, but that’s no fun. The AirFryer provides the perfect middle-ground solution: You get crispy skin on the outside without coating your kitchen in oil stains, and the meat inside stays moist and tender.

(Air) Fried Guacamole

(Air) Fried Guacamole

Our Fried Guacamole marries the classic chips and guac combo into a handheld showstopper appetizer—no double dipping or browning-in-the-bowl guac concerns necessary. To keep things Primal/paleo, gluten- and grain-free, we used cassava flour and grain-free tortilla chips, and instead of deep frying, we used an AirFryer.
