Smokey Salmon Burgers

Smokey Salmon Burgers

Burgers are normally a hit in our house. As I have mentioned before my husband Howard and son Ted love a burger and they don’t mind a fish burger either. Recently I made a smokey tomato soup and Ted who isn’t the biggest fan of spice really enjoyed it. Therefore I thought I would try more smokey flavours in our meals. To be honest, I was a tiny bit hesitant about this dinner but Ted, once again, surprised me and ate the lot. We loved this meal and we hope you will too.

Smokey Salmon Burgers

Smokey Salmon Burgers were a big hit in our house. I actually made these burgers in the morning before cooking them. Then I left one in the fridge overnight and I cooked it the next day for my lunch. It was as tasty the day after as it was on the day. These burgers could be made the day before and store in the fridge. Plus you could make these burgers and store them in the freezer for up to six months. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
