    Where are 11 grams net carbs coming from in this dish? Seems too high.

    Onion, garlic, sour cream and the salad all add to the carb count in this recipe.

    I'm sorry, I don't have the nutrition breakdown by meal component.

    I added finely cut shrimp that I squeezed the liquid out because I didn't have enough salmon (about 1/4 or a bit more)
    After following the instruction, I found it was very "wet" so I added about 1 cup of pork rinds and still in the pan didn't
    hold together as good as in the picture. Could be 2 things as I see it, I minces the onions instead of shredding but should not of mattered,
    2, I might have made them too thick. The feta cheese sauce was amazing. I did add about 1/4 cup of Costco Caesar salad dressing and added powder garlic instead of raw garlic. Would be overwhelmingly be too garlicky. Add powder and taste, repeat till you have the amount of garlicky taste as you want.
    My take and it was great. Added more fat! :)

    The likely culprit here is the shrimp.

    Hi Kristen, what do you think about freezing the patties before frying to make this a freezer meal?

    Could I add a bit of almond or coconut flour to help hold together?

    The egg will help hold them together as it cooks.
