Ginger Spiced Salmon Burger

This recipe is so easy to make, and will serve 4 people. Perfect for on-the-go people who want to eat healthy. You can make these ahead of time, and freeze them, or refrigerate for up to 3 days before cooking.

You will need:

  • 1 1/2 pound skinless, boneless salmon
  • 2 tablespoons coarse ground mustard
  • 2 Green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon capers, drained
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil, or organic canola oil

To make the ginger-mustard “mayonnaise”

  • 2 Tablespoons Soy “Mayonnaise”
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon finely grated, peeled, fresh ginger root
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tamari sauce

Mix all ingredients well in a bowl.

To make the Salmon burgers:

Cut the salmon into large chunks and put about 1/4 amount into a food processor with the coarse ground mustard. Process until the mixture becomes pasty, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the green onions and the remaining salmon and pulse the mixture on and off until the fish is chopped and combined to the puree. Scrape the mixture into a bowl and by hand stir in the bread crumbs, capers, salt and pepper.

Shape into 4 burgers. If using immediately, heat oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Cook the Salmon burgers for 2-3 minutes per side.

You can serve on a bed of greens dressed with the ginger-mustard “mayonnaise”, buns, or with lemon wedges and a dollop of the ginger-mustard “mayonnaise”.
