It’s the season for burgers, and where I’m from, it’s also prime time for fresh seafood.
While you could make these salmon burgers with a salmon filet, I usually make them from canned salmon. Canned salmon is a great pantry staple because it is inexpensive yet still provides omega-3 fats, protein, calcium and vitamin D.
Omega-3 fatty acids are important because they help reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease (amongst other many important health benefits!) and since your body cannot make these on their own, you need to get these fatty acids from your diet. Salmon is also low in saturated fat and cholesterol (learn more about fats here).
These burgers can be made gluten-free and are GERD friendly.
You can serve these burgers on a bun, in a lettuce wrap, on a salad or just as is. The quick tzatziki sauce is a great compliment to the salmon. It also makes a yummy dip for veggies or pita chips. I would suggest chopping up some additional cucumbers to dip in the tzatziki sauce, as well as some bell peppers and carrot sticks. I hope you enjoy it!
