Salmon Burgers with Crispy Sweet Potato Fries!

A week or so ago it was soooo beautiful and sunny outside, it really felt like spring!
And when the weather is warmed, I automatically think of burgers on the grill.


Well, I didn't grill these, and they aren't your typical burgers, but they sure did put me in the spirit of spring!

To make these salmon burgers even more delicious, I sandwiched them in pretzel buns, smothered some sundried tomato pesto that I found at the store, and toped with sliced avocado.
And what is a healthy burger without sweet potato fries? So I made those too :)


I hope you all try this recipe! Its fun to do something different with salmon for a change!!





Salmon Burgers

Ingredients:

  • 1 jar of sundried tomato pesto from your favorite grocery store, I used this one.
  • 8 ounces of crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup of crushed saltines
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 small, finely chopped, red onion
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 1 pound salmon filet, skin removed, cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions:
  1. Combine feta, saltines, egg, red onion, and dill. Add salmon to the food processor; pulse until coarsely chopped and then add to feta mixture.
  2. Mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 8, 1 inch thick patties.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add patties in batches and cook until golden brown - 3-4 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve on pretzel buns, with pesto, lettuce, and avocado slices.

The amazing sweet potato recipe I used is from Gimme Some Oven :)



ENJOY!
