Burgers of all description never fail to satisfy a hungry family. Using fresh salmon, this recipe might encourage the fussiest of eaters to eat fish! Make for midweek supper, picnic or enjoy al fresco as they are delicious hot, cold or warm.  I like to make a double batch and freeze one for another occasion when time is of the essence.

Preparation time: 15 mins –  cooking time 12-15 mins – Serves 4-5


600g pieces fresh salmon – skinned and roughly chopped

Juice of 1 lemon juice

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

3 tablespoons fresh dill

1 tablespoon wholemeal plain flour

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons rapeseed oil

To Serve

4 sesame bagels – cut in half

4 tablespoons coleslaw

5 baby cherry tomatoes- sliced

4 pickled dill cucumbers – sliced

Sprigs of dill


1  Place all the burger ingredients into a food processor and whizz together to combine.

2 Tip out and divide the mixture into 4 equal portions. Using wet hands mould  into burger shapes.

3 Place on a hot BBQ or heat the oil in a frying pan. Sauté with the lid on for about 5 minutes on each side or until cooked and golden or grill in the oven.
