  1. Briefly blitz half the prawns, half the salmon, the spring onions, lemon zest and half the coriander in a food processor until it forms a coarse paste. Tip into a bowl, stir in the rest of the prawns and salmon, season well and shape into four burgers. Chill for 10 mins.

  2. Mix the mayo and chilli sauce together in a small bowl, season and add some lemon juice to taste. Mix the lettuce with the cucumber, dress with a little of the remaining lemon juice and 1 tsp olive oil, then set aside.

  3. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan and fry the burgers for 3-4 mins each side or until they have a nice crust and the fish is cooked through. Serve with the salad on the side or in toasted burger buns, if you like, with a good dollop of the spicy mayo.

Nice burgers! Can be a little watery but really nice so long as seasoned properly. I chilled them in the fridge for an hour and had no issue with them falling apart

Absolutely delicious. One of the best recipes I’ve tried in a while. Had no issues with the burgers staying together, although I let them sit in the fridge for closer to 20 minutes. Would definitely recommend!

These were delicious and so easy to make! The only problem was they fell apart a bit when I put them in the pan so I would leave in the fridge a bit longer than 10 minutes next time so they firm up a bit more.

Worst dish I have ever cooked/consumed. Made the whole house stink and the burgers were flavourless and mushy. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

Rubbish recipe burgers fall apart during cooking into a mush. Needs something to bind together egg perhaps

I probably did something wrong but I tried the recipe, the whole thing fell apart and it tasted disgusting. I really think it was my fault and I'm in fact incapable if cooking but I tried.

Makes a sizeable four burgers, so realistically good for two hungry adults. Expensive, but good for a treat. Filling and tasty. Make sure you don't try and make burgers too thin as they hold together pretty well when chunky but start to collapse when pressed thinner.

So tasty and so easy to make! I would highly recommend this recipe. Definitely not 'cheap' though.

Well nice looking recipe and all but the shopping list is way out of kilter so avoid. It has a disclaimer against the price per portion .....I should think so too £1.75.....x4 I make that £7........Actual cost Ocado = £16.87 (4.22), Tesco =£12.75 (3.19) ASDA= £13.17 (3.29) Morrisons (just for the hell of it) =£14.86 (3.72) .......IF ITS NOT EVEN VAGUELY ACCURATE DON'T BLOODY PUT IT ON AS A EDGY BIT OF TECH. If you think this recipe is cheap....what do you have on your cornflakes, caviar?

Unsure why this is in the "cheap and healthy" section, I wouldn't consider prawns and salmon very cheap compared to some other seafood.

Are the calories from the burger bun included?

Thanks for your question. No the buns are not included. The calories on our recipes include everything except items listed as 'to serve'. Hope that helps in future.

Cut the salmon and prawns into small-ish chunks when mixing with the paste so the burgers can be easily shaped. If you like your burger spicy add a good amount of chilli mayo as it isn't too hot!
