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.

Made mini version of the burgers and served alongside Carrot, Avocado and Orange salad as a starter - perfect!

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

Great recipe and it is quick to make. I usually make it with Warm Potato Salad (

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! :)
