Roasted Broccoli:

  • 1 lb broccoli florets

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 2, 5 ounce cans salmon, skinless and boneless
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped

  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce

  1. Prep broccoli.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Lay broccoli florets on a sheet tray.  Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast in oven for 20 minutes while you prep salmon burgers.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients for the salmon burgers except for the olive oil and buns.  Mash with fork until a thick and cohesive mixture forms.  Form four patties.
  3. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add olive oil and allow to heat.  Add salmon burgers and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.  Finish the burgers in the oven until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  4. While the burgers are finishing, prep the avocado salsa.  In a small bowl, add avocado, tomatoes, lime, soy sauce, scallions, and ginger.  Mix to combine.
  5. Serve burgers on a bun topped with avocado salsa and roasted broccoli on the side.
