I was craving salmon patties the other night, but then I realized that I had some wheat buns from Whole Foods, so I decided to make a salmon burger instead. It was super easy to make, and is a nice alternative to a beef burger. And, it is much better for you! With one can of salmon, I ended up with 6 burgers. So this is a cheap way to feed a family.
- 1 can of salmon, boneless or pick the bones out
- 1/2 onion, finely chopped
- 1-2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp coriander powder
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 tsp cumin powder
- 1/4 tsp red chili powder
- salt, to taste
- 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
- 1 green chili, chopped
- 2 tsp besan
- bread crumbs, for coating
- oil for saute
In a bowl, add all the ingredients except for bread crumbs and mix well. If needed, use another egg for better binding. Shape into burgers. Dip each side in bread crumbs.
Heat around 2 tsp of oil in a pan. Once hot, add the burgers, but don’t overcrowd. Cook on both sides till nice and golden brown.
*I made mine into a burger, topped with red onions and tomato, coriander chutney and spicy ketchup.
*For a vegetarian version, try the aloo tikki burger.
