Fresh Salmon Burgers & Cabbage Salad

Warning: pictures are not that appetizing, lighting was horrible, but the taste is absolutely phenomenal!

These were so so good! A couple weeks ago I had my first ever salmon burger, and I was in heaven. Spinach and feta salmon burger is what it was, I mean does that not just sound absolutely amazing? These however put the above to complete shame. They were so flavourful, and moist. They were surprisingly light as well, but filled you up at the same time. Definitely an amazing recipe that you must try!

Ingredients:
  • 2 lbs fresh salmon
  • 2 tbsp ponzu sauce
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil (don't put too much more as this does have a very strong distinguishable taste)
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Dash of rice wine vinegar
  • Dash sea salt
  • Dash pepper
  • Dot of wasabi
Directions:

Cut salmon into chunks, and then move it on over to your food processor (you know it's ready when it looks like canned tuna/salmon).

Take the salmon out of the processor and put on a plate or cutting board.

Add all of your ingredients into the salmon. Mix ingredients by hand.

Form into patties, either big ones or mini ones like I did. Brush them with sesame oil (or regular oil, if you feel as though you have put too much for your taste buds).

Grill or saute for 3-4 minutes, or even a little bit less time if you want it to be a little more sushi-esk ;).

Cabbage Salad Recipe:

Ingredients:
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp vinegar
  • Salt to taste
  • Cabbage of choice, I used broccoli slaw
Directions:
Cut your cabbage, unfortunately my cabbage fell out of the cart on the way home so I had to use my broccoli slaw. It was still very good, but definitely not to the same extent.

Julienne cucumber and mince the garlic and place them both on top of the cabbage.

Add thinly chopped cilantro, olive oil, vinegar and mix everything well.

And voila, very simple, and taste excellent.

Enjoy!
