Hi guys! It’s Radeyah!
Welcome back to my food blog, Edible Love By Radeyah, all about making fast, easy and mostly healthy dishes to satisfy your hunger, and to, you know, give you sustenance for life. On Edible Love, I try to break down the easiest of meals in a simple way so that ANYONE can follow along and create their own meals. As I said in my introductory post, I am not any kind of food expert. I am just a regular person who is annoyed by people who bash other people (of either sex) for not being able to cook. Hence Edible Love is a way for me to spread love to all those people who find the kitchen a scary place and to make it just a little bit more approachable.
So do you ever feel like you want something really really tasty to eat, but you do not want to spend a lot of time preparing it? Well any type of burger can fill this need really, but here I will talk about a Salmon Burger that I made for dinner, and the specifics of how I made it. This burger is absolutely easy to make, and even someone who does not know how to turn on a stove can do it!
You will need:
Salmon Burger Patties
(totally easy right?)
The Salmon Patty
If you have a griddle, you can use it to cook your salmon patty. Otherwise, you can use a regular pot on the stove.
Tip: I use a griddle to cook burgers, eggs, toast, pancakes…basically everything (seriously, if you don’t have one, you need to get one because it makes everything so much easier).
Spray some PAM, or sprinkle some olive oil and let your patty cook.
Tip: My mom taught me that if I put a piece of foil over the salmon patty, it cooks faster and for me I love anything that speeds up the cooking process, so I did that.
You will know when your patty is done when there is a light brown, for lack of a better word, tan on the salmon patty.
The Washing and Cutting
Wash and cut your onions to your liking. Purple onions are delicious, but regular ones work fine too.
Wash your lettuce and dry them. You really do not want wet lettuce to make your burger soggy. TRUST ME.
You can add any veggies you want including tomatoes, pickles etc.
Tip: Wash and cut your veggies prior to fixing up your coconut bake so that the toasty-ness would be preserved!
Cut your bake in half. You can toast your bake in a toaster or on the griddle. I prefer using the griddle, but for this particular time, I used the toaster.
Lightly butter the bake, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Putting everything together
Just like in my last post about my one-dish pasta and basil chicken, my favourite part was putting everything together. It’s just nice to see the fruit of your labour, you know?
Place your lightly buttered bake halves on a plate, and place your lettuce, onions and whatever else you decided to include in your veggies on one side of the bake.
Then, add your ketchup, mayo, garlic sauce and pepper to the bake.
Tip: I added my sauces to the side with my veggies just so I could keep the messiness at a minimum when eating it!
Place your cooked salmon patty on top the empty side of the bake and top it off with the side with your sauces and voilà! Your yummy salmon burger is ready to eat!
I welcome everyone to try this, and any recipe that I post, and if you do try it, I’d love to hear from you. You can hashtag #EdibleLoveByRadeyah and tag or mention me! I have also created a Pinterest board called “Edible Love” (of course, I mean, what else?) so if you’re on there, feel free to follow my board and re-pin my pins!
