In my quest to be healthy, I try to include fish in my diet as often
I can. This is always a bit of a challenge for me as my dear
hubby does not like fish. What to do? I eat fish for lunch or on
the nights he now has golf league.
Here I am having a wild Alaska salmon burger on a bed of
mixed spring greens. This version is high protein and low carb.
I am very fortunate that my local co-op just blocks from my home
sells these burgers in their butcher shop. While I don't have their recipe,
I can tell you that from what I can taste and see, the burger is just
fresh salmon chunks with some scallions held together with an egg
I presume. Fresh, simple and yummy because the full flavor of
the salmon comes through without a lot of bread crumbs.
When I figure out how to make these burgers taste just like
the co-op's I will let you know.
I added my own home made tartar sauce. And here it is:
1/4 cup of mayo
good squeeze of fresh lemon juice
some pickle relish (your call on how much)
some capers (without their juice)
sprinkle of Kosher salt
freshly ground pepper
Now you can also add some grated lemon rind to
give the sauce a bit more lemon zing if you like.
I did not use all of the sauce on my burger as I try
to keep fats to a minimun, but we do have to enjoy life
too so I just use moderation.
