Transforming Strength Salmon Burgers Recipe

Salmon Burgers with a “clean” twist are a nutritious and healthy recipe recommended by Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach Matt Hartsky.

  • Serving Size: 1 Burger
  • 4 cans (6 ounce) Boneless Skinless Salmon. (I sometimes substitute 6oz of smoked salmon for one can. Gives it a great smoky taste.)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup riced vegetable of your choice. (Broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic or one clove
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • Herbs to taste like dill, chives, parsley.
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together. Divide into 5 equal portions. I measure the portions on my food scale dividing into my 3 oz. protein allotment for my Eat On Purpose Plan. Shape into patties. Fry in a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. 3-4 minutes on each side.
Refrigerate leftover patties. Use in meal preps for next meals or freeze.
Best if quick fried to reheat but ok in the microwave as well.

BONUS • Avocado/Tomato Salsa. By Chris Hamann.

  • 1 Diced Avocado 
  • 1 cup diced fresh Tomato

  • 1 crushed clove Garlic

  • Mix gently
  • Serving size 1/2 cup
