This Southeastern recipe can be made healthier by using omega 3 eggs and extra virgin coconut oil or olive oil. The correct way to eat grains is to ferment them overnight (about 1 cup uncooked oatmeal plus 1 tbsp plain yogurt or apple cider vinegar in a sealed container in the refrigerator); and it would be interesting to see what would happen if the burgers were made using fermented uncooked oatmeal. You can omit the oil and fry in little or no broth in a nonstick skillet to save calories and fat. The best salmon to use is wild Pactific or wild Alaskan salmon, red or pink. I haven't tried these yet but seek easy, healthy recipes.
- 15 1⁄2 ounces salmon (1 can)
- 3⁄4 cup quick oats, uncooked
- 1⁄2 cup onion, finely chopped
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil (optional)
- 2 tablespoons parsley, minced
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Drain salmon and flake it.
- Combine salmon, oats, onion, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, oil, parsley, and lemon juice.
- Mix well and shape into patties.
- Heat oil in skillet and fry, flipping over once, so each side becomes golden brown.
I loved the taste of these. Wonderful combination of flavours. I couldn't even tell there was oats in there and no crackers! The consistency was a bit soft though. Next time, I will not add the oil to the mixture and will just spray the skillet. Thanks for posting!
