Mom’s Club Recipe: Salmon Burgers
January 14, 2011 § Leave a Comment
Hello! I hope you’re doing well~
Here’s a Salmon Burger recipe from Sarah:
1 14.75 oz can salmon (I get the wild Alaskan salmon at Trader Joe’s–(Sarah))
1/2 cup egg substitute (I use one egg–(Sarah))
1/2 cup crushed saltines (about 14–I have used whole grain crackers before too–(Sarah))
1/3 cup sliced green onions (I skip this if I don’t happen to have any– (Sarah))
1 tbs lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt and pepper
Let your kids crush the saltines (FUN!) and dump everything into a bowl and mix. If you don’t usually buy canned salmon you just need to open it up and pull out the bones–a little messy but still quick and easy to do. Mix it all up and form four patties. Cook in skillet, medium heat, for about 3-5 minutes a side until just browned.
I serve them plain with rice pilaf and green beans. You could make actual burgers with buns and fixings too.
(Thanks, Sarah! I haven’t tried these yet, mainly because I don’t care for fish, but I may make them for Pete and Peter. Here’s an article from “Prevention” magazine which discusses the dangers of farmed salmon and recommends using canned salmon, which is almost exclusively wild salmon. I do wonder about the BPA in the cans, though! Nothing is easy when it comes to choosing the “right” food…We can only make educated decisions and hope for the best! – pwa)
(One last thing, no matter what I’m eating, whether it’s a kale salad or a plate of fries, I always say a little blessing in my head like “Thank you for this food and allow it to nourish me as best it can. – pwa)
Have a great weekend!
