Yummy Mummy Monday: Salmon Burgers

To celebrate the sockeye salmon run we have here in BC in late Summer, I’m featuring some delicious & nutrient- packed salmon recipes to inspire you to try this delicious fish. My hubby’s family still fishes commercially and my father- in- law gave me his recipe for salmon burgers (they’re a huge hit in the family!). A delicious meal for a hot Summer evening.
Yummy Mummy Recipe: Salmon Burgers
Ingredients:
Makes 4- 6 burgers
2 lb Fresh or canned salmon 
1 bunch kale, pureed in food processor
2 tbsp fresh dill
2 tsbp dijon mustard
1 onion, finely diced
pinch salt
1 tsp pepper
1 egg for binding (optional)
Directions:
1. Preheat bbq or grill to a medium heat. If using fresh salmon, de- bone the meat. If using canned, drain the juices.
2. In a bowl, combine all ingredients ( if using fresh salmon, you may need to use a food processor to shred the meat). Add extra seasoning to taste. 
3. Shape patties into desired size (these won’t shrink the way beef patties will)
4. Place patties on grill & cook for 5- 10 minutes (for fresh fish, make sure patties are cooked through)
Serve with your choice of fixings on a whole wheat bun ( or pick your fave gluten free option). 
I love coleslaw or tartar sauce, avocado & lettuce- I think keeping it simple with these burgers is best.

Yummy Mummy Monday: Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

We’re due for an epic sockeye salmon run in BC this Summer. To tempt your taste buds and help you prepare for this delicious local bounty, I thought I’d toss a recipe your way that does justice to this amazing fish. It’s so versatile and a perfect candidate for the grill! Packed with nutrients, it’s delicious served hot or cold.

Yummy Mummy Recipe: Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

Ingredients:
For the salmon:
1 side of salmon
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp each ground coriander & cumin
2 tsp dill (for the best flavour, use several stems of fresh dill)
1/2 white onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1tsp pepper

For the avocado salsa:
1 avocado, sliced
1 red onion, thinly sliced
2 limes, juiced
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 jalapeno, finely chopped (use as much or as little as you like, to taste)
salt to taste
Optional: 1- 2 tomatoes, finely chopped

Directions:
1. Mix the ingredients for the salmon rub in a bowl; in a separate bowl whip up the avocado salsa. Refrigerate both for 30+ minutes to let flavours combine
2. Pre- heat the grill/ bbq to a medium heat
3. Rub the mix on the salmon & place on grill. Cook until light pink/ flaky
4. Serve the salmon topped with the avocado salsa

Delicious served over rice.


What is your favourite salmon recipe? Sockeye is the popular choice and perfect when you can get it fresh. Spring/ king/ chinook salmon is a less pricey option and also delish (and my favourite!).
