Salmon Patties

  • 500 g boneless salmon fillet skin removed
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped red onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Burger Garnishes

  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tomatoes sliced
  • 1 head lettuce washed
  • tartar sauce


  • Cut the salmon fillet into large chunks and place in a food processor. Pulse for a few seconds until its broken into a chunky mince. Remove the salmon from the processor and place in a bowl.
  • Add to the salmon mince the lemon zest, juice, chopped chives, parsley, red onion, eggs, almond flour, salt and pepper. Using your hands mush everything together until well blended.
  • Divide the mixture into 7 balls and flatten until they are approximately 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick, don't flatten them too much or they will fall apart when cooked.
  • The patties can be cooked for 4 minutes per side in a frying pan with approximately 1 tsp of oil or on a well oiled grill. Flip when they are golden and crisp in colour.
  • To serve the burgers place on a lettuce leaf and top with a slice of onion, tomato and a spoonful of tartar sauce.
