Spicy Keto Salmon Burgers with Lemony Kale

Spicy Keto Salmon Burgers with Lemony KalePin recipeFollow us 50.3k

I absolutely love these Keto Salmon, Courgette (zucchini in the US) and Chilli burgers. So simple to make and packed with protein and flavour. Plus I squeezed in some hidden vegetables to help up your veggie intake for the day.

Served today with a simple marinated kale salad but you could also try them with this Paleo Spinach Tabbouleh or Low-Carb Garlic & Lemon Roasted Broccoli. I also love them with some smashed avocado and a dollop of homemade mayonnaise. Feel free to customise the sides to your liking.

Option to make these Keto Salmon Burgers with tinned salmon if you don’t have access to fresh.

  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos (30 ml)
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro (15 g/ 0.5 oz)
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley (15 g/ 0.5 oz)

  3. Place all the salmon burger ingredients in a food processor and blitz until combined. If too wet add a touch more coconut flour and place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. The mix should be firm enough to roll into patties (4 large or 8 small) but not too dry. Spicy Keto Salmon Burgers with Lemony Kale
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat, 4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Adjust the heat to ensure they don’t burn, flipping twice.
  5. Mix the dressing ingredients together in cup. Massage the dressing into the kale and allow to rest for 3 - 5 minutes to wilt slightly and let the flavours infuse. Top with flaked almonds. Spicy Keto Salmon Burgers with Lemony Kale
  6. Serve the salmon burgers with fresh sauerkraut and lemony kale. Option to serve with tzatziki or smashed avocado. Spicy Keto Salmon Burgers with Lemony Kale

I made both of these dishes last weekend for my husband and I.  SO.  GOOD.  I wrung the zucchini out as much as I could but the patties were still quite wet so they pretty much fell apart in the frying pan.  So they didn't turn out looking great but the flavor was truly amazing so we were happy campers.  I whipped up a little sauce with mayo, horseradish and lemon to top them with and that was a great addition.  The lemony kale was so good too.  My husband even like it.  : )

Maybe I'm being blind but I can't see where it says how much zucchini to use? Thanks.
