Method

  1. Tip the salmon into a food processor with the paste, ginger, soy and chopped coriander. Pulse until roughly minced. Tip out the mix and shape into 4 burgers. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then fry the burgers for 4-5 mins on each side, turning until crisp and cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, use a swivel peeler to peel strips of carrot and cucumber into a bowl. Toss with the vinegar and sugar until the sugar has dissolved, then toss through the coriander leaves. Divide the salad between 4 plates. Serve with the burgers and rice.

lovely recipe

These were brilliant. I put a little bit too much paste in as I had less salmon than suggested, which made it slightly soggy but I think had I put a small amount less it would have been perfect. Will definitely be making again! Highly recommended.

I made this recipe for the second time tonight and really enjoyed it again. We don't have a food mixer so I chopped everything as small as possible and grilled as patties. There were a little wet but just turned down the heat and flipped them over to ensure they were cooked. Can't recommend more!

Coated these with panko breadcrumbs and they cooked beautifully. Must make again!

They were too soggy, i wish id used my brain and added some flour or breadcrumbs
they were also quite heavy so i doubt that i will cook them again though they tasted amazing

Great fishcakes! So easy to make and very tasty. Added a small amount of flour to firm them up a bit and they held together well when frying.

Really yummy, healthy and super easy to make. Didn't crumble like fishcakes i've tried to make before. Used green thai curry paste instead of red because that's all I had in the fridge, but it worked fine, not too spicy. Lovely with brown rice cooked in stock and a salad!

These burgers were really easy to make and were a nice change from plain old grilled salmon. The texture looks a bit spongy but taste is great!

5/5 - delicious!

I added spring onions, garlic powder, black pepper and lemon juice with sweet chilli dipping sauce to the side. Also used green thai paste as I already had it in the fridge. As others have said, they are rather soggy when you first put them in the pan but they do hold their shape well. One burger would not have been enough for us so we used the above recipe for 2 with salad and wedges. Highly recommend for a tasty and healthy quick dinner!

Tasty and easy but the consistency didn't do it for us

These are so easy to prepare and cook! I used red wine vinegar & brown sugar for the carrot & cucumber marinade. Next time I would add spring onion to the burger, and possibly serve a chilli dressing with it

Really enjoyed these, halved the amount to make for 2, but made 2 smaller salmon burgers each rather than one large one. I found that the ginger did overwhelm slightly, but that can be easily rectified for next time. Simple & tasty.

Not tried this before and have bought green Thai paste by mistake.... Do you think it will still work and taste as good??

Fab! 5*! Added 3 garlic cloves crushed, pinch of chilli flakes and a tbsp of lemon juice. Lemon juice made it a bit wet and first burger did collapse, so I grilled the top instead and all stayed in one piece. Delish! :)
