Is it just me or does it seem like summer is just flying by? I’m trying to cook on the grill as much as possible, because before you know it old man winter will be back to shoo me inside. So I’m making salmon burgers on the grill and I’m bringing these lovelies to Fiesta Friday. I hope everyone looking to stock up on their omega 3’s!
I purchased pre-made salmon burgers a couple of months ago on a whim because they were on sale. They are super convenient and a nice change of pace if you’re burned out on normal burgers. But I thought – I can make this myself. Of course I didn’t want to use bread crumbs (I hate bread crumbs, seriously they are evil) so I mixed up a batch using oatmeal as a binder.
Lo and behold salmon burgers are super easy!
Salmon Burgers – Makes 4 patties
– 1 Can of Salmon, back bones removed
– 1/4 cup oatmeal, I used quick oats
– 1 teaspoon onion powder
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 2 eggs
Mix it all up until in a large bowl until it is uniform and form into four patties. I found that it helped to park them in the fridge for a bit after forming and before they hit the grill.
Sliced avocado and chipotle mayo.
I’ll have to share the recipe for chipotle mayo in a future post. On a side note how did I go my whole life until now without chipotle peppers in my pantry? Honestly, I just don’t know. But let me tell you bob they are awesome/life changing! So much lovely flavor in such a tiny package! I have been in a bit of a culinary funk lately since we cut way back on dairy. Life seemed so dull without cheese – but chipotles, they almost make up for it!
Help me out, what are your favorite dairy free dinner options?
