These are DELICIOUS! I used green thai paste as it was what I had inthe cupboard. The amounts give us 6 salmon burgers & I must admit it serves 2 well or 3 if you serve with rice etc. The salad is lovely too, I also put raw courgette in the salad. The only thing I would say is not to be scared of the mixture whe I first made I thought the mixture was far too wet and would fall apart in the frying pan. It doesnt - it is fine. Also you dont need ANY oil to fry in if you have a good non stick frying pan.

is there something i could use as a substitute for the thai red curry paste? i dont think i would use it much, and dont want to waste my money buying it.

Not actually tried the salmon burgers but the Thai Salmon Skewers were absolutely delicious. A great way of eating salmon, lovely and moist and the peppers & courgettes stayed in shape and were a perfect complement to the salmon. Highly recommend !

Very easy to make and very tasty. We made the burgers the night before to give the flavours a chance to develop. will definately be having these again

Found these really tasty and easy to make. Served with rice and the salad, which was also delicious and our little ones were trying the cucumber and carrot strips thought the burgers were a bit spicy for them. Next time would make the recipe for us (4 burgers just enough really to feed 2 hungry adults) and reduce the spice for the little ones in a separate batch. Well worth a try. (NB Don't have a food processor but chopped first and then mixed with my handheld blender).

I just cooked the burgers out of this and had them with some couscous and vegetables, the burgers were really delicious. I think I slightly overcooked them - and they weren't done for the full time, but the flavour was really nice and the texture is quite meaty. Big hit with both myself and my husband! I also tried them with some sweet chilli dipping sauce - yum!

This recipe is a real favourite in our house - I have lost count on how many times I have made it! Very easy to make and is lovely with a sweet chilli dipping sauce. Didn't make the salad, but served with rice, sweetcorn & peas.
