Double salmon burger

So what is a double salmon burger? I had some smoked salmon in the refrigerator which I was meant to eat for breakfast but forgot. It was at its use by date and I’m not keen on testing the dates given food safety is something I feel strongly about. I also had a fillet of Atlantic salmon ready to cook. If a little bit of salmon is good, more must be better.

I made a salmon mousse with the smoked salmon by combining it with avocado, fennel, red capsicum, red onion, salt and olive oil.

I then put it together to make a quick and easy meal for one burger.

For breakfast today I had melted cheese on a bread roll with a Chinese gooseberry drink.

For lunch I had a gluten free steak sandwich at The Tradies Woden.

I’m grateful I’m do not have coeliac disease. Gluten free bread is okay but not as nice as bread with gluten.

  1. Looks delicious, Gary. Hope it tasted that way even though the salmon was bang on its use-by date. It does look like a very thick slab of salmon. Nice and chunky but I generally prefer mine mashed 🙂

    1. The fillet was nicely cooked and flakey. The smoked salmon mousse when well as a spread. I used the leftover mousse as a dip. I really had a double whammy salmon dinner.

    1. Thanks Lorraine. Every now and then I do use quantities but I’m just so lazy and I have my mother’s voice ringing in my ears, “If it’s not baking then just use the quantities your gut tells you feels right.” That has always frustrated me and you’d think I’d do the right thing and be more helpful, especially as a bloke blogger trying to give ideas to other blokes who need ideas for dinner.
      I’ll try to be a better blogger 😃
