Salmon & Ginger Burgers, Amelia Freer

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the 1/3 of the salmon chunks, spring onions, ginger, lime zest, and coriander into a processor and blend until roughly combined, don’t let it become a puree. Add the remaining salmon and pulse a couple of time only, it should still have some chunks of fish. If you have time, leave this to chill for 30 minutes, it will be easier to handle.
  2. With wet hands, shape into four burgers about 8cm wide and leave to firm up a further 30 minutes in the fridge, if you have time. Pre-heat oven to 200/180fan/gas 6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the burgers for a couple of minutes on each side to brown, place on a lined baking sheet and finish in the oven for 8 minutes or until cooked through.
  4. Serve with a salad, spicy cress and a wedge of lime
