Quinoa Salmon Burgers

I am a sucker for anything with quinoa in it, so when Ali at The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen posted these quinoa salmon burgers today I knew I had to make them.  Not just someday -- today!  They are made in a food processor using cooked quinoa and fresh salmon along with some herbs and spices.  They are super simple and quick to make, especially if you ask the fish market to remove the bones and skin for you.  I chose wild coho for my salmon, and parsley and dill instead of the cilantro that Ali lists in the recipe. 

These patties are going to be one of our dinner favourites.  We both raved about them while gobbling them up.  The quinoa makes them so moist, and using fresh fish really enhances both the texture and flavour.  Yum!


  1. Wow, you are awesome! Great photo! So glad to hear you all enjoyed them! -A :)

    Oh, and I didn't know that you could ask to have the bones removed too! That makes the recipe super easy! :)

  2. I LOVE quinoa. Will give this a try too!

  3. Stay tuned for another quinoa recipe this coming week!

  4. These were LOVELY. Awesome recipe. My hubby and I aren't on a special diet, but I wanted a healthy burger. They cooked up brilliantly and the quinoa added a great flavour. We had these on a toasted whole grain ciabatta bun topped with fresh baby spinach and herb goat cheese.
