Salmon Burgers and Oven Roasted Vegetables

These salmon burgers are pretty basic. I ate them on a burger plain with some lettuce, but I think they would probably be served best on top of a salad.

Salmon Burgers
adapted from Teresa Cutter, the Healthy Chef

450 g wild salmon fillet, chopped
2 Tbsp diced onion
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbsp ground flax seed
3 Tbsp water
1/2 C bread crumbs
freshly squeezed lemon juice

1. Combine flax seed and water and let sit while preparing the rest of the ingredients
2. Combine salmon, onion, parsley, flax/water mix, and salt and pepper to taste in food processor.
3. Process until just combined. Remove and shape into 4 burgers
4. Coat lightly in bread crumbs and set them in the fridge for at least 5 minutes.
5. Cook in a frying pan with a small amount of oil until golden and crisp over medium low heat ( 5-10 minutes per side depending on thickness of burger). I covered the pan to ensure the inside of the burger cooked well.
6. Serve over greens or on a bun and drizzle with fresh lemon juice.
