Quick healthy salmon burgers are the perfect easy dinner option. It takes just 40 minutes to prepare and cook these delicious heart healthy homemade patties.
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.
