  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.

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! http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/carrot-orange-avocado-salad

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 (http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2668/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! :)
