Salmon Burger

Salmon is a great source of protein and omega 3 fatty acids. Leftover burgers can be used in a salad the next day.


500g fresh raw skinless and boneless salmon fillet, chopped
1 small bunch chopped parsley
2 spring onions, sliced
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
Good grind of pepper and a little sea salt
1 egg
50g almond meal to coat (optional)

  1. Combine the salmon, spring onion, parsley, lemon zest and juice, egg and a little salt and pepper into a food processor. Process until just combined.
  2. Remove and shape into 8 burgers.
  3. Coat them lightly in almond meal if using, and rest in the fridge for 15 minutes to help them firm up.
  4. Cook the burgers in a pan over a low to medium heat with a splash of olive oil until crisp, golden and cooked through.
  5. Serve with your choice of steamed vegetables, roasted sweet potato or leafy greens.
