Salmon Burgers #lowfodmap #tararochfordnutrition

What a week!

This past week has been filled with so many changes and news as well as ups and downs. I hope you are all handling things ok.

I have been making a point to facetime/zoom call with friends and family, talk on the phone, and take time to relax (and resist the urge that I must be 100% productive all the time…). I’ll be honest in saying the beginning of last week had me facing a lot of fear about going into my birthing time, which could happen really any time in the next few weeks! Thankfully, I have some really amazing tools and a support system that have helped Brian and I both shift into the mental space of letting go of any expectations we have for our birthing time. Whatever happens will be exactly what is needed for our baby girl to arrive here safely.

Now onto these Salmon Burgers…

These are a really quick meal to toss together, use canned salmon (yay for pantry-safe foods!) or leftover salmon, and both result in a delicious and satisfying Salmon Burger.

Salmon Burgers Tips

  • These salmon burgers come together SO quickly – all you do is combine the ingredients in a bowl. While combining the ingredients, I heat a skillet over medium-high heat then add some garlic infused olive oil (affiliate link).  Form the mixed ingredients into 4 patties, then cook in the pan for about 5 minutes on each side. To save even more time, while the salmon burgers are cooking I like to toss together a salad. Dinner in 15!
  • I used gluten free panko bread crumbs that I found at a grocery store near my house. I love the texture they give the burgers.
  • For serving, you can put the burger on a bun or serve on a bed of your favorite greens – the choice is yours and both options are equally delish!
  • Salmon is a fish that is very high in Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids are linked with brain health, decreased inflammation, a reduced risk of heart disease, depression, dementia, and arthritis.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids are very important for pregnant women to consume because they aid in brain and retina development.

2 eggs

½ cup gluten free breadcrumbs

1 teaspoon salt (reduce to 1/4 teaspoon or to taste if using canned salmon)

Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet.

Cook the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side or until browned and slightly crisp.

  1. Hello, I’ve been on a no grain no gluten diet for awhile now. These sounds so delish! I’m wondering what can I substitute for the gf breadcrumbs? Would ground/chopped walnuts work?
    Thanks in advance!

    • I would try almond meal possibly, but I have not tested the recipe that way so I’m unsure of how good it will actually be. If you try that (or something else) let me know how it turns out 🙂
