Salmon quinoa burgers

I love salmon…raw, smoked, baked - anything! So when I saw the recipe for salmon quinoa burgers I couldn’t resist.

This healthy recipe is also pretty easy to make!

First up I made the dressing - olive oil, apple cider vinegar (she recommends champagne vinegar but I didn’t have any), shallots, dijon mustard and seasoning.

Chop the shallots...
...and then just mix it all up together.

Simple! Though mine looked a lot thicker than the recipe pics, but it was tasty so didn’t matter to me.

Next up was the salmon prep.

You need 16oz of salmon so I dug out a mixture from my freezer supplies.

The recipe says to blend up about a quarter of the salmon to help the burgers hold together.

The rest just finely chop and add to a mixing bowl.

Cook your quinoa…

…and fry up the shallots and kale…I could only find frozen kale though so wasn’t really needed.

Then basically throw all the ingredients into bowl - salmon, kale, cooked quinoa, egg, dijon mustard and seasonings.

Mix up.

Then form into patties - I have a burger press as love to make my own beef burgers so that made it very easy.

Next cook the salmon patties on a skillet for about 5 minutes each side.

While they were cooking I made a salad to accompany - cherry tomatoes, baby cucumbers, salad leaves and orange pepper.

When your burgers are cooked on both sides...

...simply serve them with the salad and dressing.


Especially with a little dressing to add a yummy ‘zing’.

Worth a go as would be an easy summer dinner party dish.
