Salmon Burgers

I love a good burger. Not a fast food burger but a hearty one made with good ingredients. Salmon is my favorite fish and an easy alternative to the usual beef burger. These are light yet absolutely tasty. Salmon’s also great because it’s full of protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin B12.

Salmon, dill, chilli and lemon make such a good flavour combination. I used canned salmon, which makes these really convenient. If you are in a pinch and don’t have any of the spices, feel free to make your own alterations. I love these with a zesty side salad or some homemade sweet potato chips. Go a step futher and make your own bun if you’re feeling so inclined!
