Hubby had a great time in Fernie over the weekend, snowboarding and hanging out with the boys. This has been an annual trip of theirs, which usually involves a lot of red meat (i.e. ribs, ribs and more ribs!). Needless to say, this week needs to be filled with lots of fish and veggies.
I had wanted to make salmon burgers for a while and this was the perfect opportunity. I didn’t really measure, just threw in some flavours that I thought would work well. I took one pound of salmon which I cut into chunks and then pulsed it in the food processor. I added some chopped onion, an egg, some soya sauce, sesame oil, ginger, salt, pepper and then binded it all together with some bread crumbs. When I play with flavours like this, I always like to cook off a little bit and make sure that it tastes good before making patties and cooking off the rest.
I let the formed burgers rest in the fridge for a bit and then pan fried them with just a touch of olive oil. Served on a toasted whole wheat bun with some mayo and topped with slices of creamy avocado, it was full of flavour and totally hit the spot.
