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.

EASY and delicious. As in previous comments the mixture was very wet but it worked and only 1 out of 6 kind of fell apart. Added some spring onions, a red chilli and some garlic paste.... delish. Definitely one to try again.

Super tasty. I make a batch of these and freeze them individually wrapped in clingfilm for quick midweek meals.

I tried this tonight, my boys age 5 and 3 couldn't have enough the burgers. I also put some spring onions into the burger which tasted delicious. I also included frozen peas into the rice. This will be on my favourite list for a long long time, thank you for sharing xxx

Planning to make these today and want to freeze a batch. Does anyone know whether it's best to freeze the burgers raw or freeze them cooked? Hopefully someone can advise me here....

Wow, these are amazing! I'm glad I read the review telling me not to panic about how wet they are as I was a bit worried but they cooked perfectly and it is correct that you don't need to add any oil to you non-stick pan to fry them because of the fat which comes out of the fish. Very very easy to do and really tasty. Didn't make the salad but served with stir fried green pepper, courgette and carrot mixed with a good dollop of sweet chilli sauce. I suspect this recipe would work very well with white fish too for an even healthier dish. Definitely going onto the list of favourite quick healthy meals.

Hot! But lovely :-) i did not bother with grating the ginger. I wizzed it around first then threw the remaining ingredients in and blitzed. So easy and quick. We found the flavour from the Thai paste quite hot, so I would add less next time. The texture was also quite wet,but squashed together well and was very easy to fry. Would be lovely made small as a starter. Will definitely make again soon. Fab!

We cooked these last night, used our hands due to lack of a food processor but they were delicious and really simple and easy for some first time chefs!

Delicious light alternative to a meat burger. Served with toasted buns, salad and sweet chilli sauce.

These were absolutely delicious - I'm not normally a huge salmon fan but I really, really liked them. I was also a little sceptical about not having any sort of sauce/dressing with them, but they were tasty and moist enough on their own.

I made them into 8 cakes rather than 4 because I felt like they cooked more evenly and I think they look nicer on the plate that way.
