  • 1 - 15 oz. can salmon - flake with a fork, removing any skin pieces but mashing any small bones
  • 2 pieces whole wheat bread - make into crumbs with your blender or food processor
  • 1/3 - 1/2 of a red sweet pepper - chopped small in food processor
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or chives
  • 1 small onion - chopped small in food processor
  • 3 - 4 Tbsp. hummus
  • 3 - 4 drops Tabasco sauce or 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. fresh or bottled lemon juice


  • Mix all ingredients together. 
  • Shape into patties (I make 8 from this recipe). 
  • Spray your largest frying pan with a cooking oil spray (olive or canola oil) and fry until browned on each side.

Makes 8 patties.

I serve these with Tahini Sauce (although my kids are happy to eat the salmon patties plain):

  • 1/4 cup Tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 clove garlic chopped very small
  • 1 - 2 tsp. lemon juice

Makes 1/2 cup of sauce.  A serving is approximately 1 T.


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
