SCD Recipe: Quick and Easy Salmon Burgers

These delicious salmon burgers use canned salmon, because – let’s face it – I don’t always, have fresh salmon on hand, or feel like cooking it — SCD Tip – keep some easy-to-prepare foods at the ready so you don’t have run out to the store when you totally don’t feel like it —

I can get this done in less than half an hour. They go great with a salad, or do them as a lettuce wrap with some fresh guacamole (or just avocado) and tomato. Add some fresh fruit on the side (or whatever you want) and you’ve got a quick and easy dinner.


I haven’t tried it yet, but you could probably use tuna in place of the salmon. As always, make sure your canned fish doesn’t have any added ingredients you don’t want, like soy.
