I've been fishing around for a new food item to try, and with summer still in full swing - THIS was last night's recipe I tested out. Minimal ingredients, easy to make, and of course, gluten free, lactose free, and fodmap friendly. NOW, as you know, when I am creating recipes, I base them off MY dietary needs, therefore there's a lot of sprinkling as I go with spices and amounts, therefore, the following recipe may need to be tweaked a bit or have more "oomph" added in the garlic, onion, flavor etc. department!
As for the taste test - delicious! BUT it does not taste like a salmon filet or burger to be honest like I had kind of expected. If anything, it tasted more like a crab cake - not that I have ever even had one, but it was a bready/fishy mixture. If you can have it, this may taste good with some tartar sauce? ANYWAY on to the recipe
3 Drained Cans of Canned Salmon (15 oz.)
1/3 Cup Gluten Free Bread Crumbs (you COULD use GF Oats - but you may need to tweak the ratio)
1 Tsp. Parsley Flakes
Garlic and Onion Powder to Taste
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1. Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl
2. Open and drain all cans of salmon, put into the bowl, with the 3 eggs and break up with a fork
3. You want the mixture to be wet, so you can form patties that don't crumble. I originally only used two eggs, but it was a bit dry so I added another egg, along with a sprinkling of coconut flour to make sure it wasn't too dry. Play with your ratios
4. On a lined baking sheet, form into patties, cover and let chill for 30 minutes in the fridge
5. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees
6. Thoroughly grease the lined baking sheet (these WILL stick if you don't) and bake for ten minutes or until golden brown on one side
7. Use a spatula, flip the burgers over, grease the bottom again, and cook for another 7-10 minutes, again, until golden brown
8. Serve on buns or lettuce wraps with a side of mashed avocado and topped with tomato
- Bread Crumb Alternatives: GF Oats, Coconut Flour, Crushed Up Crackers
- Not following FODMAP Free? Add onion into the mixture
- Additional Spices to add: Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, Paprika
- Alternative Cooking Methods: Grill or Skillet
- IF you skillet cook it, your whole house/apartment will probably smell of salmon, I hate that and
don't own a grill - so I baked mine
- Fishy fingers or bowl even AFTER washing? Use vinegar to soak the bowl and your hands to rub off that salmon smell!
