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.

Did not like these at all. Salmon taste was totally overpowered by taste of curry and ginger. Far too oily also. Will not be giving this recipe a second chance.

These were amazingly easy to make and they fried well , keeping their shape. So quick and tasty, will def make again, we had them with chips though so not so healthy:-)

I used Harissa paste which worked really well. I didnt have any curry paste and didn't want to buy a whole tin. Any curry style paste works.
To make a simple paste which works nicely mix tomato purée/sauce with indian spices, chilli, salt, pepper and herbs.
Hope this helps!

Great burgers - added chilli to them as well and really tasty! Put lime in salad and rice vinegar and still good. Will definitely make again!

These were amazing, the best recipe I have found in a while, I love GF website. Served it for a dinner party starter... and should have made more! Used green paste as I prefer this to red. When asked for the recipe I was quite reluctant to give it, as it is so simple and quick and my cover of being a good cook would be blown!

These have a really good texture and held together well. I added spring onions as per previous suggestions and served with brown rice and broccoli - lovely!

These were fantastic! I had high hopes having read the reviews and I was ultimately satisfied. I scaled it up as I had an extra fillet. Very quick to make, only used a teardrop of oil (wasn't really needed), held together well and plenty of flavour. I added 2 spare spring onions. My joint favourite recipe from this site :)

These were really good. i was worried that when it came to the frying and turning over part they would crumble like some other recipes, but they stayed together brilliantly. husband, not a fish lover, even liked them. we will have them again, not least but i can just throw the ingredients into the food processor and it does all the work!!!

OMG, these were Amazing. I cant believe how easy they were to make too. I made them this afternoon and kept them in the fridge to develop the flavours.
My husband doesnt like cucumber so I made warm carrot and couregette slices and sauteed them in a little butter.
They are so easy to make so could be made in bulk and used for a summer BBQ.

I didn't have any curry paste, so made without - just salmon, soya sauce and ginger - and they were fantastic!
Also grilled them instead of frying them in oil - so mega healthy!

Served them with rice and fresh beetroot salad.

Will be definitely making this again...

Excellent. Didn't bother with the salad, though; served with rice and peas.

My husband doesnt like salmon so substituted this with fresh tuna. A real winner.

Also made it with prawn - really tasty but didnt combine as well.

A new favorite:)

these were very easy to make and tasted delicious. I added spring onion as some others have suggested.
Have to agree with the comments regarding the consistency of the salmon when it comes out of the blender it does seem very wet. I took the tip of dusting with flour and refrigerated for a few hours prior to cooking. The tip regarding cooking in sesame oil was great and I think really added flavour.
I served mine with sweet potato chips. Definitely will be making these again, they were scrummy - being healthy is a bonus!

Yummy and very versatile as a starter or a burger with chips. Fabulous flavour and the salad too!!
