Basil Salmon Burgers

These burgers were a foray into salmon’s uses; I’ve never strayed from broiling or grilling salmon, but I am pretty impressed with the digression.
This recipe is from Loren Cordain’s The Paleo Diet Cookbook and I strongly recommend it as a resource to anyone looking to bring more paleo cooking into their kitchen.  All of his resources are great, so check them out.
We ground up a large cut of salmon using our Ninja, and added in the garlic and basil to the mix.  With some eggs and onion powder, it all really came together.
The burger was crispy on the outside but still juicy in the middle.  The seasonings add a nice balance to the fish and it’ll make great leftovers crumbled over salads for the next few days.
There’s still a lot of spinach in the house, so we tossed the burger over a bed of spinach, but there’s chicken salad and more to come this week.
