Sesame Salmon Burgers

For lunch we made some delicious salmon burgers. These are great to make in advance and freeze for a quick meal, and an awesome source of protein. These are gluten-free, but you can always add bread crumbs, or flour for a different consistency.


  Salmon Patty Ingredients:

  • 1 pound wild salmon, skin removed
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp ume plum vinegar ( find at whole foods or asian markets)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger

  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp  sriracha (or any hot sauce you like)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp cilantro
  • coconut oil  for frying
  • Rinse the salmon, pat dry and cut into ¼-inch cubes
  • In a large bowl, combine salmon,cilantro, oil, ume, garlic, ginger, scallions, sesame seeds and eggs
  • Form the mixture into 2-inch patties
  • Heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat
  • Cook the patties for 4 to 6 minutes per side, until golden brown
  • Transfer patties to a paper towel-line plate and serve hot
You can also put this in a food processor, but i like it chunky!! Another good alternative to this would add black beans, quinoa, zucchini, mushrooms, sweet potato… etc

About Skinny Fat Kids

I am a fat kid at heart. I don’t start a day without planning a meal; whether it is cooking with friends or trying out a new spot. It might have something to do with being a Mexican/Italian.. Since I was young I loved to help out in the kitchen and was open to all types of food. I appreciate what cooking comes along with… Family, friends and times you will never forget. Food for me is something that you can make taste good even though it is healthy! People have no idea how easy it is to throw together a perfectly well balanced meal that provides them with all the essential nutrients one needs. Each of us have your unique genetic needs, tastes, backgrounds which can be factored into your food and nutrition plan. “Change is one constant in our lives.” You can rid disease and illness through food. Food is something people do not clearly understand. I strongly believe in cooking with local, seasonal, organic, and nutrient-rich ingredients as best as you can. It is essential to eat only grass fed dairy and meat because they provide more essential nutrients as well as high levels of vitamins. Having a garden and knowing where your food comes from is essential! I owe a lot to my mom who many can attest that she is a GREAT entertainer. She seems to always be having a “dinner party” and always throws together something delicious. My objective in this blog is to share my love and knowledge of food and cooking with all you peeps. I want to give you all ideas on how easy it is to eat healthy and make food taste good. I want the standard american diet to be something of the past… TBC
