Keep a mental note of this refreshingly light recipe for Prawn & Salmon Burgers With Spicy Mayo. It has everything as far as I’m concerned – looks like a naughty burger but it’s so light, fresh, piquant and rich in Omega-3. Definitely on my fave recipes list.
Prawn & Salmon Burgers With Lip Licking Spicy MayoDifficulty: Easy
A burger, but not as you know it. This one is so fresh and light and moreish.
180g pack peeled raw prawns, roughly chopped
4 skinless salmon fillets, chopped into small chunks
3 spring onions, roughly chopped
1 lemon, zested and juiced
Small pack coriander, roughly chopped
60g mayonnaise or Greek yogurt
1 – 2 tbspn chilli sauce (depending on how spicy you like your mayo)
2 Little Gem lettuces, shredded
1 cucumber, peeled into ribbons
1 tbsp olive oil
4 oven bottom muffins, split and toasted
- Briefly blitz half the prawns, half the salmon, the spring onions, lemon zest and the coriander in a food processor until it forms a coarse paste. Tip into a bowl, stir in the rest of the prawns and salmon, season well and shape into four burgers. Chill for 10 mins.
- Mix the mayo and chilli sauce together in a small bowl, season and add some lemon juice to taste. Mix the lettuce with the cucumber, dress with a little of the remaining lemon juice and 1 tsp olive oil, then set aside.
- Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan and fry the burgers for 3-4 mins each side or until they have a nice crust and the fish is cooked through. Serve with the salad on the side or in the toasted muffins. Either way, plonk a good dollop of the spicy mayo onto the fish burgers before you serve them. Brilliant on their own, even more yummy with some oven baked sweet potato fries.
