Salmon burger recipes

These salmon burger recipes make the perfect fish burgers.

You probably already know that salmon is an amazing source of essential Omega-3 fatty acids. Consumption of these good fats is linked to good heart and blood vessel health. Omega-3 fatty acids have also been linked to improved mental health and functions, and a lessening of inflammatory conditions both inside the body and on the skin.

It is also a great source of protein and other trace amino acids lacking in most of today's processed foods. It is also a good source of magnesium and vitamin B-12.

Salmon Burger with Lemon Basil Sauce

If your New Year's resolution involves eating healthier, try these delicious salmon burgers.

This is a canned salmon recipe.There are two kinds of canned salmon available: pink and red. Pink is more delicately flavored than the robust red. However, either works just fine in this recipe.

The canned fish is pressure-cooked, so there is no need to remove the bones or skin. In fact, the delicate, easily digestible bones are the reason why canned salmon is one of the best non-dairy source of calcium, having almost as much as an equivalent serving of milk.

Serve these salmon burgers with a tropical fruit salad made up of plenty of pineapple and mandarin oranges. The tartness of the fruits balances the richness of the salmon patties and sauce.
