I was looking through some different recipes online for something different then your typical meat supper that most of us are use to. I also try to have fish once or twice a week. Here is what I found… and my little twist.
4-6 Boneless skinless salmon fillets cut into chunks 1/2 inch cubs
2 tablespoons red curry paste – if you like it a little spicy (optional)
Thumb size piece of ginger root grated
1 teaspoon of soy sauce
1 bunch coriander, chopped and leaves picked
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 1/2 quinoa
1/2 cup of red pepper bell
2 eggs beaten
1 teaspoon of virgin olive oil
Add salmon into a food processor with the ginger, soy and chopped coriander. Pulse until roughly minced. Meanwhile, saute onion over a skillet with virgin olive oil for 2-3 minutes while salmon is in food processor.
Combine salmon mixture with sauteed onions and form into patties. Add egg yolk around patties with bread crumbs making sure they stick (optional) – breaded salmon burger)
With pan already heated from onions, add a little more olive oil and fry burgers for 5 minutes on each side, turning until crisp and brown making sure it is cooked through.
Another way to do your burgers once formed is putting burgers on a baking pan with a non stick parchment paper and broil for 10-15 minutes until brown and cooked through on both sides. Don’t forget you need to make sure you flip them yourself.
While you are cooking your salmon burgers how you want to, you need to prepare your salad by peeling your carrots and cutting anything you would like to add to it like cucumbers, quinoa and avocado.
Rinse quinoa thoroughly in a small strainer. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Put quinoa in water and reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook until all water is absorbed.
Once quinoa is cooked, stir to bring to room temperature and add in your veggies you want to the salad.
Take out your salmon burgers out of oven or off of stove top and you have salmon on top of quinoa salad.
Great recipe for two people and double the portions for 4 people etc.
