Salmon Burgers with Pickled Ginger and Coriander Recipe
We all love burgers, but since I don’t eat red meat, I have to cook mine slightly differently.
One day my husband and I decided to create our own recipe for cooking burgers, but without red meat.
We tried various different meats – but Salmon was a clear winner. For those who need it, you can serve the healthy Salmon in a gluten free bun.
Salmon might be expensive but it is wonderfully nutritious, full of good fats and protein. Just one ounce of wild salmon provides a full days requirement of vitamin D.
Serving: Serves four burgers which can feed a whole family well as they are quite filling
Diet: Protein packed meal and brain food!
One pound of your fishmongers finest salmon fillet. Discard the skin and slice into 1 inch cubes
Two tablespoons of drained pickled ginger
Half a red online, a small one will do and chop it up
One third a cup of cilantro leaves
Two teaspoons of soy sauce
Two teaspoons of toasted sesame oil
Half a teaspoon of sea salt
One quarter teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
Two tablespoons of vegetable oil
Mayonnaise of your preference
Place the salmon on a flat pan or dish and freeze it for fifteen minutes. It should grow cold but not freeze within this time.
While you are waiting, you can put the bowl and knife in the freezer too. After fifteen minutes, you can use the very cold blade to cut the salmon easily.
You’ll want to cut it into pieces that are around a centimetre in size.
Place this salmon into a mixing bowl and add flavourings such as ginger, red onion, cilantro leaves, and oil. Mix thoroughly and then place the mixture into a blender.
You can take the mixture out and roll this into patties, you can make four since we’re making four burgers.
Place the patties in the refrigerator and leave overnight. This will help improve the flavour overnight.
When you want to cook the patties into burgers, you can warm a grill and place the patties on a baking tray in the center of the oven.
Add some vegetable oil to the burgers to keep them from drying out while cooking. You should cook the burgers until they are brown and firm.
This should probably take around five minutes on each side. The mayonnaise you prepared earlier can be used as dressing on the burgers.
An Alternate Healthy Tuna Salad Recipe
I don’t eat much Tuna as it is a deep water fish that is high in the element mercury. From time to time, Tuna makes a delicious treat.
Here is my own Tuna Salad recipe.
Serving: Quite flexible, but two to four people
Half a cup of Tofu and one quarter of a cup of Vegenaise
Two teaspoons of Dijon mustard
One tablespoon of lemon juice, fresher the better, it doesn’t last long in the fridge
Eight ounces of fresh tuna packed in olive oil which you will later need to drain
One tablespoon of white onion chopped finely
Four finely diced cornichons
A pinch of celery seeds
A pinch of sea salt
Black pepper at your discretion
Turn the Tofu into Puree and mix in the lemon juice and mustard.
Use a powerful blender. In a separate bowl, gather the other ingredients and mix together. It is important that the tuna is finely broken up.
Serve with gluten free bread and a side of vegetables for a super healthy lunch with the family.
