These quick healthy salmon burgers came about when I managed to pick up a couple of salmon fillets in the reduced section of our local supermarket.

Those of you who know me well enough will have heard me talking about “hanging around” the reduced aisle regularly and checking it out for any such bargains! I’m always amazed that prices are slashed by more than half on some items which have just reached the day or day before they have to be sold by.

These are the kind of bargains that I look for eagerly and if I haven’t got a use for them instantly then they’ll go straight into the freezer for when I do! On this occasion the salmon fillets were perfect for grabbing and putting together as these excellent budget quick healthy salmon burgers, a recipe I’d been thinking about conjuring up for some time.

Complimented with a garlic mayonnaise, light side salad and baked sweet potato fries, they tasted amazing!

I debated waiting until January to post this recipe but I thought I would get away with it at the end of November just before all the festive recipes flood in.

It’s great to be enjoying ourselves at Christmas and perhaps over indulging a little, but still having the 80/20 rule for eating in mind. There’s sure to be plenty of turkey and lots of other delicious foods to be had and especially in my case, hopefully some new cheesecakes!

But if there comes a time over the next month (or anytime if you’re reading this at a different time of year!) where you fancy a change from all those festive treats then these salmon burgers could be just what you’re looking for.

It’s worthwhile remembering too that it’s still recommended to include at least two portions of fish a week, including one of oily fish to ensure you get enough omega 3 to keep your heart healthy.

Right folks, let me know what you think of these quick healthy salmon burgers in the comments below. Thank you!

I’m off to London tomorrow for a weekend away celebrating Lady Lynne’s birthday by going to see Aladdin at the Prince Edward Theatre on Saturday night and you can bet there will be some nice meals out too.

So, I’ll catch up with you all next Thursday (there will be no post on Tuesday) with a delicious new Christmas themed cheesecake recipe, a No Bake Chocolate Orange Cheesecake. Don’t miss it, it’s so easy to make!

Until then, have a great weekend!

    I didn’t see your previous post, so I enjoyed reading more about the 80/20 concept. That’s totally makes sence. Personally, my lunches and dinners during the week are very simple and most likely, the same. Indeed, I’ve read somewhere that if you eat same (simple, “boring”) meals during the week, your brain will likely be more cooperative and will not produce false signals saying the body is hungry. Heh, I think this works. I dont mind eating one dish for a few days in a row. Besides, I don’t want spend my time cooking after work. But the most importantly, it gives me a legitimate right to cook something special and not necessarily healthy on weekends (And also indulge with ice cream during the week). And these burgers are so delightful! I’ll take the pattie leaving out the bun and, thus, saving room for ice cream 😉

      My breakfasts and lunches are always porridge and soups Ben. So like your simple, same lunches and dinners, mine are that too!

      But yes, let’s make sure the weekends are different and we’re cooking up a storm with something indulgent. Personally that for us is a home made cheesecake. Got a new one coming up next Thursday. Its yum!

  2. I love a good salmon burger! And I agree with you about the discount aisle at the store, Neil. I always swing by that section just to see if there are any good deals. As long as you either cook it up right away or put it in the freezer, then you’ve scored some solid savings! Aladdin in London sounds like an amazing experience, and I hope you and Lynne have a wonderful time. Take a pic or two to share with us, ok? In the meantime, I’ll be waiting for my slice of cheesecake next Thursday…haha! 🙂

      Just packing my rucksack now David and thoroughly looking forward to our weekend away in London.

      Lynne’s down there for work and she’s just texted to say she’s got an upgrade to a really posh room. How lucky are we? I’ll try to take some photographs and post them with the Cheesecake recipe. If I can remember to take photographs! 😉

  3. I love a good salmon burger. Have not made my own yet. That needs to change! Have fun in London!

      Hey Megan 🙂 how’s it going? Great to hear from you and glad you like my Quick healthy Salmon Burgers!

      Can’t wait for London, just getting ready for it now. Looking forward to it and to some great food too.

  4. I love salmon burgers! They’re always been a staple in the freezer 😉

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Absolutely. I made several batches of these when I was trialling them Rebecca so they kept well in the freezer. They’re all done now though so I guess it’ll soon be time to make a new batch! 🙂 Oh what a chore…….. 😉

  5. I haven’t had salmon like this in forever. The garlic mayo sounds good.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Jeff. Salmon can be a bit expensive sometimes so when I can get it reasonably priced it’s a bonus! I just felt (and Lynne also agreed) that the garlic mayo was the perfect compliment to this burger. 🙂
