Salmon amaranth burger with radish slaw


by: Everyday Healthy Recipes

This is a simple, no fuss recipe, ideal for a hot day (such as today, at long last!), when you would probably prefer to spend more time in the garden than in the kitchen. Don’t be tempted to grill these burgers, however, as they are very low in fat and are likely to get a bit dry on the grill. Better to coat them lightly in breadcrumbs and fry in a little oil. Amaranth can be cooked ahead of time (and kept in the fridge for up to 5 days). This will shorten preparation time.

1.  If you are using frozen salmon filets leave them in a strainer to get rid of excess water and squeeze any remaining water out.

2.  Chop up the fish roughly and pulse in a blender to obtain a smooth mixture. Season, add the amaranth, horseradish, breadcrumbs and stir well. Fold in the capers. Form thick (about 2 cm) burgers and coat in the remaining breadcrumbs. Heat up about 2 tablespoons of oil and fry the burgers for 3 minutes on each side on a low/medium heat.

3.  To make the radish slaw, grate, spiralize or finely slice the radishes, add the dill, lemon juice, oil and seasoning, and stir well to combine.

4.  Serve the burgers with the radish slaw in your favourite burger buns. Yields 6 large burgers.
