Food for thought. Recipe. Wild Salmon Burgers with Tzatziki.

These ended up being better than I imaged they would be! After being out all day I decided to not follow the recipe I had originally intended (happens quite frequently) and just go with my gut. Turned out delicious, albeit messy.

Wild Salmon Burger with Tzatziki
This recipe makes about 3 large burgers or four tiny ones. We made three and then my husband is taking one cold for lunch today.

What you’ll need:

For the burgers:
1. about one pound of ground wild salmon
2. 1 cup breadcrumbs, oatmeal, or a combination of both
3. 1 egg
4. 1/2 cup fresh dill
5. salt and pepper to taste
6. olive oil for frying

For the Tzatziki:
1. 3/4 cup thick plain yogurt
2. 1/4 cup fresh dill
3. about 5 inches of a large cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
4. one clove of garlic, minced
5. salt and pepper to taste

To assemble:
1. whole wheat pita bread (one per burger)
2. lettuces or greens of any kind
3. shredded carrot
4. any other veggies you have on hand (tomato would have been nice!)

What you do:

Combine all the ingredients for the burgers in a medium bowl and mush together with your hands. Your favourite part right? Then shape into patties and leave on a plate.

Heat up a skillet with olive oil to medium high heat (it’s really up to you how much oil you use) and make your tzatziki. Combine everything for the tzatziki in a small bowl and set aside.

Now cook them burgers! I did about 3 minutes on either side and they were perfect, it will depend on the thickness of your burger though.

Then, assemble! Easy-peasy.

I served these with a tossed baby greens salad and an amazing vinaigrette! More on this later, but lets just say we found a store that does infused balsamic vinegar and olive oils, and my vinaigrette used blackberry ginger balsamic vinegar. Yum. Dessert was a scoop of ice cream with a drizzle of espresso balsamic vinegar! Check out their website here and I’ll be doing a better review later on.

I hope you enjoy!
