These are made with just 1 ingredient – fresh salmon. No breadcrumbs, no eggs – and they stayed together perfectly proving that you sometimes the simplest things work best.

You will see that I served these on a bed of Greek-style butter beans, but how you serve them is entirely up to you – they work really well with chips too!

Some top tips. Don’t rush these.  Cooking them slowly over a low heat and keeping your pan covered ensures a beautifully soft and succulent burger.

If you fancy trying one of the herbed varieties below, I learnt from my lovely friend Alison to chop and freeze any leftover herbs so there is no waste, and now I always have a ready supply of herbs for another recipe.

Instructions
  1. Check for any remaining skin or bones, remove and then chop the salmon into chunks.
  2. Tip the salmon (plus any optional herbs) into a food processor and blend until completely smooth and combined. This may take 3-5 minutes depending on your food processor - you don't want to see any chunks.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a non-stick saucepan over a low heat. 
  4. Using your hands, or a pastry cutter, form the salmon mix into small patties about 6 cm across and 1 cm deep.
  5. Add to the pan, cover either with a lid or some foil and cook until you can see the edges turning a light pink and the base is lightly browned. 
  6. Turn over, keep the pan uncovered and cook for another 2-3 minutes.  Serve immediately, or cool and refrigerate to serve cold.

Recipe Notes

cook once: eat twice

Make double, chill and serve the leftover portion for lunch the following day.  Absolutely delicious served with a spinach and rocket-style salad and cold baby new potatoes.

variations and serving suggestions

Asian – add in a tablespoon of chopped coriander and squeeze over some lime. Serve with rice flavoured with desiccated coconut and coriander.

Dill – add in a tablespoon of fresh dill. Really nice with new potatoes crushed with garlic and olive oil.

Parsley – add in a tablespoon of fresh parsley and squeeze over some lemon. Try these with sweet potato chips.
