IMG_2449.jpg

These salmon burgers are such a quick, delicious and healthy meal! I love making these whenever I have leftover salmon from dinner the night before. I came up with the idea because I always found that I was wasting my salmon leftovers since I don’t love the way it tastes just re-heated the next day. These burgers were the perfect solution!In the pictures, I show the burgers served over my Kale + Quinoa Greek Salad, which I think fits it perfectly.Enjoy!Ingredients:1 ¼ cups cooked salmon (use canned or cook before making burgers)1 egg¼ cup almond flour or GF breadcrumbs¼ tsp paprika¼ tsp salt1 tsp Dijon mustard1 tsp lemon juice1 tbsp fresh chive¼ tsp garlic powderOlive oil for cooking For the sauce (modified from Betty Crocker recipe):1 single-serve container of plain greek yogurt1 tbsp dill1 tbsp lemon juice, plus more to taste1 tsp lemon zestDash of pepper and salt Steps:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients thoroughly with a fork. Make sure the salmon is in fine shreds.
  2. Pat the mixture into about 4 burgers and cook in a frying pan with olive oil at medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until heated through and nicely browned on both sides.
  3. Serve hot over salad, with a dollop of yogurt sauce on top.
