  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.

Not actually tried the salmon burgers but the Thai Salmon Skewers were absolutely delicious. A great way of eating salmon, lovely and moist and the peppers & courgettes stayed in shape and were a perfect complement to the salmon. Highly recommend !

Very easy to make and very tasty. We made the burgers the night before to give the flavours a chance to develop. will definately be having these again

Found these really tasty and easy to make. Served with rice and the salad, which was also delicious and our little ones were trying the cucumber and carrot strips thought the burgers were a bit spicy for them. Next time would make the recipe for us (4 burgers just enough really to feed 2 hungry adults) and reduce the spice for the little ones in a separate batch. Well worth a try. (NB Don't have a food processor but chopped first and then mixed with my handheld blender).

I just cooked the burgers out of this and had them with some couscous and vegetables, the burgers were really delicious. I think I slightly overcooked them - and they weren't done for the full time, but the flavour was really nice and the texture is quite meaty. Big hit with both myself and my husband!

I also tried them with some sweet chilli dipping sauce - yum!

This recipe is a real favourite in our house - I have lost count on how many times I have made it! Very easy to make and is lovely with a sweet chilli dipping sauce. Didn't make the salad, but served with rice, sweetcorn & peas.

These were a really substantial supper and the mixture held together really well when frying - i would make them a little thinner next time to get more of a crunch on the outside.
The salad was AMAZING !
