Spicy Salmon and Prawn Burgers

Spicy Salmon and Prawn Burgers

Seafood is always a favourite in our house. My son Ted, who is 8 years old, loves salmon and prawns. Salmon and prawns are very versatile seafood and plenty of flavour can be added. As Ted loves fish I’m always looking for new ways to cook it.

Oily fish like salmon are rich in omega 3 which can help support brain function, they can also help healthy ageing and they might help with inflammation in the body. Prawns are a useful source of B vitamins and they are an important source of trace minerals and they may also help to support weight loss.

Both of the fish in this burger give a variety of nutrition. As a mum of a slightly fussy eater this please me greatly. Therefore I knew that if I put this seafood into a burger there wouldn’t be many complaints from Ted. To be honest, we all enjoy this meal and there were no complaints from any of us.

Spicy Salmon and Prawn Burgers

Spicy Salmon and Prawn Burgers were a huge hit with us. We all enjoyed this dish. The beauty of this meal is you could make the burgers in advance of the meal and freeze them. As long as the fish hasn’t already been frozen. The burgers were also very easy to cook in the frying pan. I didn’t put the burgers in the oven. Salmon and prawns take different times to cook so I thought I would cook it in a frying pan. To me, it seemed to be the best method. We loved these burgers and we hope you do too. However you decide to eat to this burger, as always, please enjoy. Thank you.
