SERVES 8

Ingredients
Burgers
  • 1.5 pounds of Salmon (makes about 8 large patties)

Ask for the salmon without the bones, tail pieces, usually.

Salmon bought at the seafood counter is the best - the fresh fish really makes a difference. Have them take the skin off the salmon and cut it into 1 to 2 inch wide filets. Or if you buy the salmon in a pack, make sure you buy the tail pieces.

  • 2 Tblsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 ½ cups of Panko bread crumbs
  • ½ tsp Salt ½ tsp Fresh ground pepper
  • 2 Tblsp Hoisen sauce (in the Asian/Thai food section of the store)
  • 1 Tblsp Garlic paste
  • 1 Tblsp Ginger paste (found in the Asian/Thai section of the store)
  • 1 pack of whole grain burger buns
Sauce
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 Tblsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tblsp ginger paste
  • 1 Tblsp hoisen sauce (I add more to sweeten the sauce)
Preparation

In a food processor combine the salmon, cilantro, panko, salt, pepper, hoisen, garlic paste and ginger paste. Chop until the mix can form a patty, add a little more panko if it’s not forming a patty with some ease. Once processed make the patties and either put them on the grill for about 5-8 minutes or in the oven at broiler temp for 5 minutes. For the sauce, just mix all ingredients well together in a small bowl/container.

Serve with coleslaw and add large lettuce spears and tomatoes to the burgers, with the sauce….

Recipes de Mi Mamá

We have taken our mamás’ y abuelitas’ traditional Hispanic recipes and made them fit our healthier lifestyles.

Some basic Tips to remember are:

Abuelita cooking

1. Look for alternatives to lard and butter. Try olive or sesame seed oil and use about half of what the recipe calls for, you can always add a little water to the oil if you need to.

2. Try to boil, grill and bake rather than fry.

3. Replace your white rice with brown rice and your grains with whole grains make sure to use corn tortillas rather than flower.

4. Double your fruits and vegetables in every recipe.

5. Substitute your steak and ground beef for leaner proteins such as chicken or ground turkey.

6. You can still have dessert but make sure that fruit is a major ingredient.

7. Make sure that your plate has ¼ lean protein, ¼ whole grains, and ½ fruits/vegetables.
