As this weekend is the last bank holiday of the summer I have decided to share with you a perfect summer recipe for you to enjoy with your family on a barbecue. These work brilliantly with a little Indian curry paste too, and with ground pork or chicken.
Top Tip: I batch and freeze them in clingfilm.
Put the salmon into a food processor with the curry paste, ginger, coriander and lime zest, season to taste and whizz until finely chopped and coming together. Shape into 4 flattened patties, cover and chill for 10 minutes to firm up.
Meanwhile, use a vegetable peeler to peel the cucumber into ribbons, discarding the inner seedy core. Put into a salad bowl with the remaining salad ingredients and toss to coat.
Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan and fry the salmon burgers for 10 minutes, turning once, until cooked through. Serve the burgers with the salad.
