(makes 2 servings, 10 min prep, 10 min cook)
Ingredients: 12 oz wild Alaskan salmon (I used 2 cans from Wild Planet), 1 egg, 1 avocado, 1 lemon, 1 1/2 Tbsp dill, 1 tsp garlic, 1 tsp ginger, 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp ground black pepper, 1 large heirloom tomato, lemon zest, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, grassfed butter, or ghee.
- Combine 12 oz wild Alaskan salmon, 1 egg, 1 1/2 Tbsp dill, 1 tsp garlic, 1 tsp ginger, 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp ground black pepper, and a pinch of lemon zest in a medium mixing bowl.
- Heat 1 Tbsp coconut oil, grassfed butter, or ghee in a skillet over medium heat.
- Form the salmon into two burger patties with your hands and place in the pan to cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the burgers become golden brown (flipping half way through).
- While the salmon burgers are cooking, slice one large heirloom tomato and 1 avocado, dividing them equally onto two plates.
- Once the salmon burgers are finished cooking, plate on the tomato and avocado and squeeze lemon juice on top. Before serving, top with a slice of lemon and fresh dill.
Salmon is a fish that's full of wonderful health benefits. Firstly, it is very high in omega 3s, healthy fats, and vitamin D, one of the most commonly deficiency vitamins in the typical Western diet. Combined with the high levels of omega 3s in the avocado and the powerful anti-inflammatory components of the turmeric and ginger, this delicious twist on a burger is beneficial for individuals suffering from cardiovascular conditions and inflammatory conditions. Furthermore, both dill and garlic have been shown to support a balanced gastrointestinal system, making this dish beneficial for individuals with gut dysbiosis.
