Fabulous Asian inspired salmon-oat-burgers!

Fabulous Asian inspired salmon-oat-burgers!

Yesterday, I made these lovely Asian inspired salmon oat burgers. I also made them egg-free. They are really filling because of the veggies, salmon & medium whole oats!! You can make these beauties Gluten-Free, if you use Gluten-Free oats!Β They are sticky when your form them into patties but they will firm up in the fridge. I made them easy peasy in my food processor! πŸ˜‰ Check them out!

This is what a burger looks like, raw, before going into the fridge, to stiff up!

Recipe: For 3 normal sized salmon burgers


* For the Asian -salmon-oat-burgers:

180 gr fresh salmon, no skin, bones removed, cut up into bite-sized pieces with a sharp knife

1 cup + 1/2 cup medium-sized whole oats,Β You can make these beauties Gluten-Free, if you use Gluten-Free oats!

1 piece of 4 cm x 1 cm fresh ginger, peeled & cut up roughly

1 medium red-hot chili pepper, seeds removed, cut into thicker slices

3 fat spring onions ( scallions ), cleaned, bottoms cut off & cut into smaller rings

1/2 yellow bell pepper ( paprika ), seeds & white bits removed, cut up into blocks

black pepper

Maldon sea salt

a fruity evoo to fry your burgers in

* To serve: little Gem lettuce leaves + a spring onion, lime yoghurt dressing:

2 little Gem lettuce leaves, cleaned, bottom cut off, leaves used

* For the spring onion, lime & unsweetened yoghurt dressing:

7 tablespoons unsweetened soy yoghurt

juice of 1/4 lime

finely milled black pepper: 10 grins

Maldon sea salt: a few grins

2 spring onions, cleaned, white & green parts used, finely minced into rings


You will have to maken these tasty burgers at least 1 to 2 hours before dinner!

1. Take your food processor & add every ingredient in it. I added for starters, 12 grins of finely milled black pepper & 1 teaspoon of sea salt. Blitz until it is to your liking. I added 1/2 teaspoon sea salt extra & 14 grins of black pepper extra. Blitz again. Taste! It has to taste mild in the beginning but then, you must taste the ginger & an added kick from the chili pepper. You can add more chili pepper if you want or more oats, for a firmer pattie. I didn’t bother! With wet hands, I shaped 3 burgers aka patties, they sticked to my hands a bit & placed them onto a clean plate. Place cling film over it & placed them into the fridge to stiffen up a bit, for at least 1 to 2 hours.

2. Make your tasty unsweetened yoghurt-lime-spring onion dressing by combining these ingredients together in a smaller bowl & taste! It has to taste yoghurt lile with a hint of lime. You can taste the finely minced spring onions too. MMM!

3. Just before serving dinner, take your burgers out of the fridge. They still stick a bit but reshape them a bit if you need to. Fry them in a bottom of hot fruity oil, in a hot non-stick pan on medium high heat onto both sides until fried & browned. This will take about 3 to 4 minutes per side or less. Place them onto a clean plate , layed with double kitchen paper to dip off the excess of oil on the burgers!! Serve in a bun with mixed salad leaves or like me, on a plate with a side salad & a lovely unsweetened spring onion-lime-yoghurt dressing! Enjoy those yummy flavours in your burger! πŸ˜‰

    Sophie – these salmon burgers sound yummy…quinoa would work nicely here too!

  2. Tammy says:

    Great idea Sophie. I note that you are using fresh salmon but do you think this would work with canned salmon?

  3. Liz says:

    You know something Sophie, I have never made a fish burger, I don’t know why. This one here has motivated me to try. It sounds so flavourful and has all my favourite ingredients (green onions, capsicum, ginger). Thanks for sharing!

  4. ritavegas says:

    I love salmon and these burgers look so delicious!I’ll make them for sure! πŸ™‚

  5. CortneyStanchfield says:

    My kind of burgers! Yummy! πŸ™‚

  6. What a perfect summer meal, Sophie. We love salmon here in the Pacific NW and I’m always looking for new ways to serve it.

  7. katrina berg says:

    I love the Asian spices & yogurt sauce, perfect addition to a salmon burger!

  8. Yum! That looks so good!!

  9. Norma Chang says:

    Your yogurt dressing sounds like a versatile dressing that would go well with many other dishes.

  10. Amy Tong says:

    I love your easy and healthful salmon burgers! So easy to prepare with the food processor. πŸ™‚ Lovely post.

  11. Bashar A. says:

    Another great invention in the Kitchen by Sophie πŸ™‚

  12. Bernice says:

    Looks wonderful and a great way to use salmon. I have used canned salmon but in my opinion fresh is always better. We also can get salmon in a packet and it is better than the can IMO. πŸ™‚

  13. Thanks Sophie– always love a new fish recipe. This does look so good!

  14. Hotly Spiced says:

    I can’t believe these don’t have eggs. I thought you’d need at least one beaten egg to bind them together. What a great mid-week meal xx

  15. what a clever idea to use oats as a binder πŸ™‚

    • Sophie33 says:

      Yes, you can add more if you want a firmer pattie but I didn’t do that beacuse you must taste the other ingredients a lot instead of just oats! πŸ˜‰ x

  16. Love the flavors here! I also love using raw oats when making burgers πŸ™‚

  17. mushtaqtariq says:

  19. Liz says:

    Sophie, you are on a roll and I can simply not keep up with you!! As always, your food looks scrumptious πŸ™‚ Am now craving a salmon burger.

  20. I love the ginger and peppers in these.. love that little bit of extra spice. Looks delicious!
