|"I can do it..."|
If like me you are quite partial to a burger, you might enjoy what I cooked for my dinner tonight: salmon burgers.
Making these couldn't be any quicker or easier and I really loved the taste and texture. And if you want to reduce the amount of red meat you eat or just fancy a change, then I can highly recommend these. You could also replace the salmon with fresh tuna.
Salmon burgers (makes 2)
200g skinless salmon fillets (or fresh tuna)
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
2 tsp sesame seeds
a little soy sauce
a little dried chilli (or chilli paste)
optional: salt, pepper
a little oil for frying (sesame oil if you have it - otherwise any vegetable oil suitable for frying)
garlic mayonnaise or a mix of mayonnaise & plain yogurt (to cut some calories)
- Chop the salmon fillets into small pieces and add the sliced spring onions, sesame seeds, soy sauce, chilli and additional seasoning if required. You can use a food processor for this but make sure you don't blitz the fish too much - it's great to have a bit of texture to these burgers.
- Mix well and with slightly wet hands shape into two burgers. You should not need any binding agent (egg or bread).
- Leave to rest in the fridge for 10 minutes, then fry until browned evenly on both sides.
- Place the hot burger in a burger bun with some salad and your choice of sauce - I found garlic mayonnaise worked particularly well.
