Superhealthy salmon burgers

If you’re after something a little bit lighter than potato-packed fishcakes, try these quick and easy oriental-style burgers. Oily fish is a good source of vitamin D and rich in omega-3 fatty acids making it a healthy alternative to red meat burgers. This recipe is also delicious with fresh tuna steaks.

Ingredients

4 boneless, skinless salmon fillets, about 550g/1lb 4oz in total, cut into chunks

2 tbsp Thai red curry paste

Thumb-size piece fresh root ginger, grated

1 tsp soy sauce

1 bunch coriander, half chopped, half leaves picked

1 tsp vegetable oil

Lemon wedges, to serve

For the salad

2 carrots

Half large or 1 small cucumber

2 tbsp white wine vinegar

1 tsp golden caster sugar

Method

1. Tip the salmon into a food processor with the paste, ginger, soy and chopped coriander. Pulse until roughly minced. Tip out the mix and shape into 4 burgers. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then fry the burgers for 4-5 mins on each side, turning until crisp and cooked through.

2. Meanwhile, use a swivel peeler to peel strips of carrot and cucumber into a bowl. Toss with the vinegar and       sugar until the sugar has dissolved, then toss through the coriander leaves. Divide the salad between 4 plates. Serve with the burgers and rice.
