The Perfect Summertime Healthy Recipe!

This next level delicious recipe has become my favourite summer meal & I’m sure you’ll agree! Salmon burgers are a wonderful healthy alternative for grilling season! Swap out a heavy beef burger for a lighter salmon burger, it’s perfect for summer weather! This is the ultimate meal to enjoy while eating outside with the family during these idilic warmer days! These burgers come together so easily they’re perfect for a lunch or weeknight dinner when you want something quick that doesn’t skimp out on taste! It has a crispy outside, flaky inside, and a perfect juicy texture, not to mention lots of nutrition, yes please! Salmon burgers are rich in omega 3’s, high in protein, & packed with fresh herbs to truly give it a burst of flavour!

JK’s Tips:
  • Serve: Accompany the salmon burgers with a crunchy side, such as potato chips made with avocado oil! Pair with simple salad, using the leftover cilantro sauce as a dressing! Or for a more satisfying side opt for the Roasted Eggplant & Farro Salad or my go-to Rainbow Salad.
  • Grilling: If you’ve got a grill, break out that apron and throw these patties on the grill! I recommend cooking them on a sheet of aluminum foil to keep all the juices!
