Healthy Salmon and Quinoa Burgers

Wild salmon, quinoa, and kale – these burgers are not only super healthy, loaded with good-for-you omegas and tons of protein (21 grams of protein) they also taste delicious and are easy to make.

Total Time: 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 16 oz wild salmon fillet, skin removed
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup diced shallots
  • 1 cup kale, chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Old Bay
  • 1 large egg, beaten

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, vinegar, shallots, dijon, salt and pepper.
  2. Cut about a 4 oz piece off or the salmon and place in a food processor or chopper to finely chop. This will help hold the burgers together.
  3. With a knife finely chop the remaining salmon, transfer to a large work bowl.
  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add the oil and sauté shallots and kale. Season with salt and pepper and cook over medium heat until wilted and tender, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Transfer to the bowl with salmon along with quinoa, Dijon, Old Bay and egg. Mix to combine, then form into 5 patties, about 1/2 cup each.
  6. Lightly heat a nonstick grill pan or skillet over medium heat, when hot spray with oil and add the salmon patties. Cook the 4 to 5 minutes, then gently turn and cook an additional 4 to 5 minutes, or until cooked through.
