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
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
1 tsp pepper
1 egg for binding (optional)
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.
