On their own frozen salmon burger patties can be a bit bland, but this creamy lemon garlic dill dressing gives them the flavour they need to make it a taste experience. Don’t skip on the lemon zest. Trust me. It makes a huge difference.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably added a lot more fatty fish to your diet since adopting a keto diet. While frozen burger patties are a convenient tasty treat, I am well aware they shouldn’t bw something I reach for regularly as a convenience food when I’m busy. Instead, I’ve turned to salmon patties for my lettuce wrapped burger needs, when I don’t have time to make my own fish patties from scratch.
*Tip: To make your salmon burgers that much better, add a little Old Bay spice to them salmon patties while they’re cooking, then top with fresh tomato, slices red onion and this delicious dressing and you’ll be wondering why you even thought beef burgers were so good in the first place.
