This Salmon-Quinoa burger recipe is by far, one of my favorites. I made it with yam fries and salad for my mom who was visiting at the time. She was so impressed and complimentary which meant a lot to me since I regard her as the best cook in the whole world! Thank you Nourishing Meals for making me look good!
Here are the ingredients you need:
3 to 4 green onions, ends trimmed
1 large handful fresh cilantro
1 to 2 teaspoons lemon zest (optional)
1 teaspoon Herbamare
freshly ground black pepper
1 to 1 1/2 pounds raw wild salmon, skinned and deboned
1 cup cooked quinoa
"Using a food processor fitted with the "s" blade process the green onions, cilantro, lemon zest, Herbamare, and black pepper until it is finely minced.
Add the salmon and quinoa and process again until desired consistency. I like to have a few little chunks of salmon still left. You might want to pulse it until you get the consistency you want.
Form into patties and place onto a plate. Heat a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon or so of olive oil and place a few patties in the skillet. I cook only three at a time in a 10-inch skillet. If your pan is hot it should only take 2 to 3 minutes per side to cook. If your pan is not quite heated it will take about 5 minutes per side and they may stick a little."
