Salmon Burger With Avocado Salsa

Last Update: February 25, 2023

It’s burger night, with a twist! Our ocean-inspired patty is filled with chunks of non-GMO salmon meat and spiced with paprika, cumin, and just a touch of cayenne. And since every burger can use a creamy condiment to go alongside, we’ve stirred up a fresh summer salsa with avocado, green onion, and lime. For a great gluten-free and Paleo meal, skip the bun.
