Super simple salmon burgers

 

 

If you have already scrolled through the recipes on this blog, you might have seen there's another salmon burger recipe on here. It's equally delicious and quite similar to this one, but my kids (who used to be huge fans) got a bit bored of that version.

So I tweaked it a little and came up with this even simpler version.

We love the garlic in this one, but you can leave that out if you or your kids are not big fans. I also once added grated ginger for a more exotic flavor, but not everyone likes it. Whatever you add or take out, I'm sure you will love this recipe!

Fish twice a week

My recommendation is to put fish on the menu at least twice a week.

Why? Fish are nutrient-dense and offer unique health benefits. They’re an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins, and minerals protecting us against heart diseases, and chronic diseases such as cancer, depression, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Try to vary between the omega-3 rich species (salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines, herring, anchovies), and the leaner white fishes.

Should I be worried about mercury in fish?

Some people are worried about eating fish due to the levels of mercury they may contain. However, the benefits of eating fish are far higher than the potential risks. In addition, selenium protects against mercury toxicity, and most fish we eat contain more selenium than mercury (1). Just prefer the smaller species to large tuna, swordfish, or king mackerel.
