Salmon Burgers

These salmon burgers was basically created by scraps as I was butchering a whole fish the other night :) You know, them ugly end pieces that are too thin to be juicy when you cook them, and also kind of look ugly looking (and we all know that all I really care about is my food not looking like s--- :) They turned out good! And, I also suspect they might be a great gateway for those of you who aren't a fan of that fishy flavor. Spices and onions help!


4 burger patties: 

  • 1 lb wild caught salmon, turned into a paste in the food processor :)
  •  1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard  (make sure it's free from crap :) 
  • 1 tbsp of your favorite hot sauce (again, crap free, clean ingredients)
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika  
  • kosher salt to taste  
  • grassfed butter for cooking  

Set oven to 400. Mix all ingredients (except for salt and butter) together in a bowl. Form 4 patties and sprinkle salt on both sides. Sear in grassfed butter 2-3 mins in each side, then finish in the oven for 12 mins. I ate mine with a side of sautéed kale, roasted sweet potatoes, some mashed up avocado and salsa 🌶
