Salmon Burgers

Salmon Burgers

We’ve been going to a lot of Holiday Parties lately! So much rich food! Tonight we have a night off from the party-circuit and we’re taking it easy. We needed something healthy that has flavor – because you know, sometimes healthy is boring! But not these Salmon Burgers…they are healthy – an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B12, vitamin D and selenium along with niacin, protein, phosphorus, and vitamin B6, not to mention choline, pantothenic acid, biotin, and potassium. Wow! Who knew one thing could have so much good in it! No wonder it’s a favorite among so many people. Okay, so these Salmon Burgers hit the healthy spot, but do they have flavor? Yes! These Salmon Burgers have a wonderful Latin flavor! Hope you give them a try…

And speaking of Salmon, my friend Laura at Feast Wisely recently made Fishcake Bites and they sounded incredible. Here’s a shout-out to Laura thanking her for reminding me just how versatile salmon can be! Thanks Laura πŸ™‚
