  • 240 g salmon fillets skinned and cut in to chunks
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 lemongrass stalk
  • 4 shallots
  • 30 g ginger
  • 1 small green chillies
  • 100 g wholemeal bread
  • 2 limes (juice only)
  • 4 tbsp 0% Greek yoghurt
  • 4 tbsp fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Optional to serve:

  • 2 Burger buns
  • Slaw
  • Lettuce


  • Put the bread in a food processor and blend until breadcrumbs.
  • Put the skinless salmon chunks, 2 of the garlic cloves, lemon grass, shallots, ginger, chillies and juice of 1 of the limes in a food processor and blend until a paste.
  • Take out and form into 2 burger patties.
  • Heat some oil in a pan and cook for around 4-5 minutes each side.
  • Meanwhile, put the Greek yoghurt, the last garlic clove, juice of 1 lime and the basil in a food processor (clean after using it for the salmon) and blend to make a sauce.
  • Serve in a bun (optional) with sauce on top of the salmon burger with slaw and lettuce (optional).



  • If you want to make these burgers really crispy, then use panko breadcrumbs instead of wholemeal breadcrumbs.
  • The key to keeping these burgers staying together is putting them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before cooking (preferably an hour) and flipping them very carefully.
  • Make sure the oil is nice and hot before adding the burgers to the pan.
  • Not a fan of Thai flavours? You could just use some lemon juice and fresh herbs in these burgers, or add some Mexican seasoning instead.
