This salmon burger marked my comeback from a week of recovery from jaw surgery. The Copper River salmon was a gift from my generous and thoughtful dad, the arugula was leftover from a weekend lunch that Julian put on for his incoming pediatric residents, the buns emerged from the freezer as if by magic, and my only job was to buy a fresh bell pepper and show up for a bit of cooking.

This easy salmon burger recipe makes for a super easy weeknight meal. I’ve made these in a food processor, but you can also just chop all the ingredients finely if you don’t have one. You can also substitute out the dill and smoked paprika for whatever you have on hand that sounds good. (The chia seeds caught my eye in the pantry so I threw them in there, but they’re not necessary). Basically, as long as you have the salmon, breadcrumbs, and an egg, you can add (within reason!) whatever else you fancy! Have fun, and let me know what you try!
A few weeks ago I figured out how to make a mac & cheese wonderpot and I have been so excited to share it with you! The kids absolutely loved it, and I have to admit I was quite pleased to have figured out a quick and easy version of this old favourite. I will hopefully get the recipe up for tomorrow morning!
I’ve made some big changes to my inspiration recipe for these salmon burgers. The changes I made simplified things quite a lot, but also added strength to the salmon mixture so they would be easier to cook up. The end result was absolutely delicious! We will definitely have these again soon!
PS: I mistakenly got half the amount of salmon I needed and so only made a half batch of these as seen in the pictures below. A half batch fed my family of four, but Jason and I would have definitely each had another one of these if there had been more! I’ve written up the full recipe below. It generously feeds a family of four with perhaps a few leftovers.
PPS: Just FYI, I don’t currently use affiliate links. The links below are simply links to the ingredients I happened to buy. Ocado (the grocery delivery service I use and love!) has no clue who I am, and they don’t give me any sort of kickback for adding their links here. If I ever do use affiliate links, I promise to be completely transparent about it!
Emily is another lovely lady I connected with via Instagram. Her feed is full of pictures of her adorable kids (Maggie- 3 and Finn- 10months) on various adventures, and also features her stunning paper cutouts! Emily kindly agreed to share her favourite weeknight meal with us and it looks delicious! I will definitely be adding this to a meal plan soon!
Salmon Fishcakes with Leek and Carrot – Emily Hogarth
Salmon is delicious on its own, but this recipe takes it from delicious to absolutely decadent! The original recipe is worth trying if you have the time, but this version is WAY easier and still amazing. Both kids loved it; Charlotte even had seconds!
The key to this dish is to make sure you’re using a good teriyaki sauce. The original recipe has you make your own, but I didn’t have the time this week. Instead, I read loads of reviews on Ocado (my grocery delivery service) before deciding on this one. It was so good! I’ll definitely buy it again!
In celebration of the tenth weekly meal plan here on Hungermama.com, I am launching a new “Friends with Recipes” series! I have lined up some of my favourite Instagrammers to share their favourite weeknight meals with you, and would LOVE to hear from the rest of you as well! Check out the “Friends with Recipes” page for more info!
I’m going for an easy week of dinners due to our impending move on Saturday (!!), so I’m taking things easy this week. I have added a yummy pre-made meal on Monday, I’m using up some freezer items on Tuesday and Thursday, and we’ll go out to dinner on Friday given that our entire house will be in boxes by then!
We’ve had a fantastic break, but I admit I am looking forward to getting back to normal life! I’ve spent the last few weeks feasting on heavy foods and far too many Christmas cookies, and am looking forward to returning to our usual vegetarian fare.
We’re starting out the new year with some of our favourite recipes. I am particularly excited to share Tuesday’s recipe with you. It is SO good!
You know what they call Thanksgiving in the UK? Thursday. There’s no day off, no turkey, no parades . . . just the day before Friday. It can be a difficult day for Americans abroad. That being said, we are hosting our fifth Thanksgiving here in London on Saturday with friends and neighbours; it always ends up being one of the best days of the year. I will be sure to put up a post with pictures of what we make and eat!
