Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless salmon fillets, about 550g/1lb 4oz in total, cut into chunks
  • 2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
  • thumb-size piece fresh root ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 bunch coriander, half chopped, half leaves picked
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • lemon wedges, to serve

For the salad

  • 2 carrots
  • half large or 1 small cucumber
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp golden caster sugar

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
TIP
Oily fish makes a heart-healthy alternative to red meat burgers. This recipe would also be delicious with tuna steaks.
THAI SALMON SKEWERS
Mix the curry paste, ginger, soy and oil with 1 tsp honey and seasoning. Marinate the salmon chunks in the curry mixture for 10 mins. Cut 1 red pepper and 1 courgette into chunks, then thread onto skewers with the salmon. Griddle for 8 mins, turning, until the salmon is cooked through.
