Calories Per Serve: 255

Time To Prepare: 25 minutes

Serves: 4 with 2 burgers each

Ingredients:

  • 500 g fresh raw skinless and boneless salmon fillet, chopped
  • 1 small bunch chopped parsley
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • Zest and juice from 1 lemon

  • 1 egg
  • 50 g (1/2 cup) almond meal to coat (optional)

Directions:

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

Notes: These burgers keep for 2 3 days in the fridge after cooking. They are also delicious thrown into your lunchtime salad for an added protein hit.

  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 spring onion (scallion), sliced
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
  • Combine the salmon, egg, parsley and spring onion, then season with freshly ground black pepper. Have a look at your mix and test cook a batch to see it holds together when cooked. Place spoonfuls of the salmon mixture into a pan and cook over a medium heat with a splash of olive oil for 1 2 minutes each side until golden.
