Salmon burgers are a fresh and tasty alternative to a regular beef burger. We’ve marinated our salmon in lime, soy and honey before cooking so that it is packed with flavour. Wassabi adds a great punch to these salmon burgers, but if it is too spicy for your liking, you could serve with a lemon mayo instead. Beef burgers may be a barbecue favourite, but salmon is a healthy and delicious alternative. This super fish is packed with omega 3 fatty acids, which help boost brain function. What’s more, by having this grilled salmon fillet burger instead of a processed pre-made beef burger, you are cutting out any nasty additives and preservatives. We’ve used one large salmon fillet, then cut into four before serving, but you could also use individual fillets if you prefer. The way we have prepared and cooked the salmon is perfect for a burger, but would also make a delicious light meal when served with an Asian salad or rice noodles. Make a change from the normal barbecue fare and try these zesty and flavourful salmon burgers.
