Salmon and avocado omega burger

The combination of salmon, ground flaxseeds and avocado delivers a double omega punch. Serve on multi-grain rye toast, with Boston lettuce and grainy Dijon.


Ingredients

  • 500 g fresh salmon fillets
  • 1 egg , beaten
  • 1 green onion , finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp flax meal
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 avocado , diced

Instructions

  • Remove and discard skin from salmon. Chop salmon into 1/2-in. pieces, then transfer to a large bowl. Stir in egg, onion, flax meal, dill, lemon juice and salt. Gently stir in avocado.
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Spray pan with cooking spray. Scoop a heaping 1/2-cup portion into pan. Press into a 1-in.-thick round patty. Repeat, cooking 2 patties at a time. Cook until bottoms are golden-brown and crisp, 3 to 4 min. Flip and continue cooking until salmon is cooked through, about 3 more min. Top with pickled-ginger relish or peach salsa.
