Tip: You need a food processor to elaborate your salmon burgers.
For the salmon:
4 boneless skinless salmon fillets, about 550g total, cut into chunks
2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
1 thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger root, grated
1 tsp soy sauce
1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
1 tsp olive oil
Lemon or lime wedges, to serve
For the salad:
1 small cucumber
1 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp toasted Sesame Oil
1 tbsp ground Flaxseeds
Herbal salt for seasoning
1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
For the rice:
150g brown basmati rice
1 tsp of salt for the water
- Cook the rice with some salt in 3 times the amount of boiling salted water or according to package directions for about 35 minutes.
- Put the salmon in a food processor with the paste, ginger, soy and chopped coriander. Pulse until chopped.
- Remove the salmon dough and form four patties.
- Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet, then fry the patties for 4-5 minutes from each side, turning until crisp and cooked through.
- Meanwhile, use a rotary peeler to peel carrot and cucumber strips into a bowl. Mix in the vinegar, sesame oil, herbal salt and coriander leaves.
- Divide the salad among 4 plates and decorate with the ground flaxseeds.
- Add salmon burger and basmati rice.
- BROWN RICE is significantly richer in minerals than polished rice. It scores particularly well when compared to its calcium, iron, magnesium, and phosphorous content. In addition, it is a step ahead when it comes to B vitamins, which are important for your nerves and brain, among other things. Grains are high in satiety carbohydrates and contain some protein. Hulled brown rice also provides fiber and a healthy dose of B vitamins.
- The good thing about SALMON: its protein not only contributes to muscle development. Fish is also high in fat, which is a good thing: its omega-3 fatty acids protect the heart and blood vessels and lower cholesterol levels. Fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E are also concentrated in salmon meat. They promote night vision, strengthen bones and allow blood to flow smoothly.
