NATIONAL BURGER DAYPosted 4 August 2016 by The Saucy Fish Co.
Thursday 25th August is National Burger Day so let’s get the barbecue out and celebrate the last rays of summer sun!
Why not add a nautical twist to National Burger Day with our super easy – and healthy – salmon burger. This recipe won’t have you slaving over the BBQ for hours either meaning you can sit back, relax and enjoy good times, good weather, and most importantly, great food!
What you need: serves 2
○ 2 fresh salmon fillets
○ Zest and juice of one lemon
○ Olive oil
○ 1 tomato, washed and sliced
○ ½ red onion, washed and sliced
○ 2 burger buns
○ Gem lettuce
○ Burger sauce of choice
What you need to do:
Step 1: Place the salmon fillets on a piece of foil, add a splash of olive oil before wrapping and placing on a hot barbecue for 20 minutes, until the fish is cooked through . Alternatively, stay indoors and grill under a medium heat for 10-12 minutes.
Step 2: Meanwhile, gently toast the burger buns, popping on the barbeque or under the grill for around 1 minute.
Step 3: Finally, stack your bun with layers tomato and red onion, along with fresh gem lettuce leaves and a generous dollop of your sauce of choice (try tomato and chilli chutney). Add in the grilled salmon fillet and squeeze over a lemon before adding the final piece of bin on top!
