Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place sunflower seeds in the food processor. Process into a fine meal.
  • 2. Add everything else (except the celery) and process until well combined. (You may need to stop processing a few times and scrape the sides of your processor down with a knife.)
  • 3. Transfer processed mixture into a bowl and add your optional chopped celery (for texture). Stir with a spoon. Your raw salmon salad pate is now ready!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This practical recipe is super quick to whip up. No soaking or prep is required.

I use sun-dried tomatoes that have been pre-soaked in olive oil. (If you're using dry sun-dried tomatoes then you may want to add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the recipe.)

This raw mock salmon salad pate is great served on a green salad with a small splash of apple cider vinegar as a dressing. 

This recipe can be eaten right away, but it also keeps well in the fridge.

I'm going to try this today (need a couple of things from the store), but I was wondering if these can be shaped into patties and dehydrated into Salmon Burgers???

This is so delicious. When I was making it tonight, my cat was going crazy. I think she thought it was the real thing. I can't get over how similar it tastes to the real thing. You are a genius Laura-Jane. Thank you!

Will a vitamix get similar results to a food processor?

Hi Stephen! No, not at all :)

They are very different. This recipe should be made in a food processor.

A blender (a Vitamix or any blender) is used to make wet recipes, like smoothies, sauces, salad dressings and icing.

A food processor is for dryer recipes, like nut pates (like this recipe), pie crusts, brownies etc.

I explain this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jF0b2ekugyk

I hope this helps!

I'm following a juicing diet (The Juice Diet), and it incorporates a lot of raw foods/meals in the beginning and I wanted to amp it up just a little. This was SO perfect for my salad! Simple and curbed other cravings I had as it was so satisfying!

I made this more than a few times and my family and I really enjoyed it, i added kelp and dulse to it and really enjoy it that way but now im pregnant and i think sunflower seeds dont agree with my stomach, is there a substitute i can use instead of sunflower seeds?

Hi Devona!

Yes, sunflower seeds are easy to replace in this recipe. You could definitely use almonds or cashews instead.

Pretty tasty!! Great on lettuce! I may add a touch of lemon and some kelp or maybe even apple cider vinegar to mimic capers in there and see how that pairs. Always fun to experiment.

I love the suggestions of stuffing an avocado with it!

I just made this and it is so delicious and filling, just like you said in the video. A little bit goes a long way, so I still have a lot left over for later. I am such a huge fan of yours. I absolutely LOVE your recipes.

This was really amazing! I added 1 tsp garlic powder and 1 tsp dried minced onion. I was surprised that it had a faint fishy flavor. I made these to top a salad. It's excellent with ACV/EVOO dressing.

Love this! really satisfying meal. I halved the quantities as it was my first time making it. Had to scrape the sides of the processor a few times as it stuck a bit. This is so tasty and the tip for the apple cider vinegar and salad really complemented the flavour. I added a tiny bit of chilli powder to mine and it worked well. :)
Thanks again for another delicious raw dinner!

If you are going for a substitute and want a more "fishy" flavor, I suggest adding a touch of dulse and kelp powders.
