Thai Green Curry Salmon ‘Burgers’

No buns here, just juicy salmon patties with lots of fresh salad accompaniments. Be sure to chop everything finely or the burgers will fall apart. 

Serves: 4


500 grams salmon, diced finely 
½ cup fresh breadcrumbs
2 spring onions, chopped finely 
small handful coriander, chopped finely 
1 tablespoon green curry paste
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
To serve
1 cup thick plain yoghurt
cos lettuce leaves
1 cup grated carrot
1 red onion, thinly sliced
handful mint leaves
lemon wedges


Burgers: Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and season. Divide into 8 portions and gently squeeze the mixture together to form a burger patty. 

Heat a little olive oil in a sauté pan and cook the patties over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes each side until golden and cooked to your liking.

To serve: Spread some yoghurt on each plate and top with the lettuce, carrot, red onion and mint. Add the salmon burgers and a lemon wedge. Top with a little drizzle of olive oil and freshly ground pepper.
