Healthy salmon burger recipe


Super Healthy Salmon Burgers
 
After the weekend excesses, why not start the week as you mean to go on with something a bit lighter than potato-packed fishcakes; try these simple oriental-style burgers.

The firm, meaty flesh of our lovely fresh salmon fillets lends itself perfectly for this uber-healthy burger with a kick.

Enjoy with steamed rice or if you just can't live without bread, why not keep it healthy with some wholemeal flatbread or pitta?
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 of our boneless, skinless salmon fillets, about 550g/1lb 4oz in total, cut into chunks
  • 2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
  • Thumb-sized piece fresh root ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 bunch coriander, half chopped, half leaves picked
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • Lemon wedges, to serve
  • For the salad:
  • 2 carrots
  • Half large or 1 small cucumber
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp golden caster sugar
Instructions
  1. Tip the salmon into a food processor with the paste, ginger, soy and chopped coriander. Pulse until roughly minced. Tip out the mix and shape into 4 burgers. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then fry the burgers for 4-5 mins on each side, turning until crisp and cooked through.

  2. Meanwhile, use a swivel peeler to peel strips of carrot and cucumber into a bowl. Toss with the vinegar and sugar until the sugar has dissolved, then toss through the coriander leaves. Divide the salad between 4 plates. Serve with the burgers and rice.
