KETO RECIPE: SALMON BURGERS WITH CHIVE AIOLI & GREENS


KETO RECIPE: SALMON BURGERS WITH CHIVE AIOLI & GREENS by Jen Fisch via Keto In The City

I am a total salmon addict, which you have probably noticed if you follow me on Instagram because I post a lot of salmon poke, sashimi and other salmon dishes! So I was excited to try this Plated recipe that I slightly tweaked to work for my Keto lifestyle. The original recipe called for breadcrumbs, which I replaced with ground pork rinds. It also had buns, which I tossed. They also called for Red Wine Vinegar on the greens, but I just used Brain Octane Oil for additional healthy fats. 

 

SALMON BURGER INGREDIENTS

Put all ingredients in a bowl, mix together with hands and create 2, 1" thick burger patties. Put patties in fridge for about 10 minutes before you cook them. This will help them stay together better! 

  • 12 oz of ground salmon
  • 1 bunch of scallions
  • 1 tablespoon of capers
  • 1 tablespoon of horseradish
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup of pork rind "breadcrumbs" (put pork rinds in food processor and grind until breadcrumb consistency)
  • Pink salt and pepper to taste

 

CHIVE AIOLI INGREDIENTS

Mix everything together in small bowl while salmon patties chill.

  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of chives
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of mayonnaise
  • Pink salt and pepper to taste

 

DIRECTIONS

Heat skillet or grill pan on medium heat, add olive oil and when oil is simmering put the burgers on. Cook on each side for 4-5 minutes. 

Put 4-5 oz greens on a plate, drizzle with oil (I chose Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil but you could also use Olive Oil), I also added a tiny bit of s&p. Then place burger on top and spoon Chive Aioli on top! 

YUM!

This was the first time I used my new Le Creuset Skinny Grill Pan and it gave me some problems, so I'll have to use it a few more times and get used to how it cooks. First it didn't get hot enough and the burgers stuck more than I would have hoped even though I had olive oil on the pan. But it's still beautiful so hopefully I can get it working better!
