    Best and easiest salmon burger ever... held together by avocado!

    Primal Fuel
    A FoodFash Best | FoodFash

    6 oz. salmon fillet, thawed
    1/2 small avocado
    juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/4 fresh parsley
    2 green onions, chopped
    salt to taste
    nonfat plain Greek yogurt for garnish (I used sour cream)

    In a food processor, puree avocado, lemon juice, and half of the salmon fillet. *Add the onions, parsley, salt, and remaining salmon and pulse a few times until all of the ingredients are mixed, but the salmon is still chunky.

    Heat frying pan over medium heat. *Spray with olive oil (or a high heat oil may work better). *Remove all of the salmon mix and form into a patty with your hands. *Cook patty for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, flipping gently so the salmon cake stays in tact. *If a small piece breaks off, gently form back together with the spatula. *Dollop with Greek yogurt and serve.

    I’m going to try my hardest to use a word other than wow*to explain what was going through my mind as I ate every last bite. *The tartness of the lemon, the slight texture of the chunk salmon, the crunch of the green onion, the coolness of the Greek yogurt… *It all came together more perfectly than I ever could have imagined. *And the avocado? *The avocado just did it’s little glue-like thing in the background.

    Copied from site and WOW is right!!! I am amazed at how good this was!!!

    Sounds awesome! I wonder if I could turn this into a salad using canned wild salmon? Actually, that'd be pretty fucking rad.

    Thanks for posting!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    *copy*
    *paste*

    Sounds wonderful. I love salmon... and maybe I could get hubby to try it. (He doesn't like fish much, but I remain hopeful!)

    Thanks for the recipe!

    I made this tonight. It was a bit too smooth. Next time I will use some more onion and maybe stir in some capers. Otherwise, very good!

    Sounds good! I like it just how it is, although some dill might be good. Maybe try not to process it as much next time... maybe leaving some more chunkiness to it would help. Isn't it great how the avocado works in it, though? I kind of burnt myself out on them... had them for 5 days in a row they were so good.

    Sounds nice. What are "green onions"? Are they spring onions or shallots? I don't think we have them here.

    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.

    Green onions are the same as scallions. I'm not sure what spring onions are.

    I'm going to try this with tilapia and see how it works (just because I'm out of salmon).
