For burgers

  • 1 lb salmon 450g
  • 2 oz spinach 55g, 1 packed cup (roughly chopped if large leaf, fine as-is if baby)
  • 2 oz feta 55g, crumbled
  • 1 ½ tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 pinches pepper or more to taste

For sauce

  • ½ avocado
  • 4 tablespoon sour cream
  • 4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic crushed/minced

To serve

  • 3 whole wheat burger buns or plain, as you prefer, can also use muffins (3-6 depending on how serving)


  • Remove the skin from the salmon and ensure there are no bones. Cut into chunks, approx 2in/5cm cubes. Put the salmon and the spinach into the food processor and process until combined and broken up but not mush.
  • Transfer to a bowl, if easier, and add the crumbled feta, lemon juice and a generous grinding of pepper. Mix until the cheese is well spread through the mix then divide into 6 and form into burgers. They will be relatively soft - if you want and have time you can lay on a tray to firm up in the fridge for a little time before cooking.
  • Cook either on the grill or in a skillet/frying pan with a little oil for approx 3min each side until gently browned and cooked through. Note they will cook quicker than a solid piece of fillet.
  • While they are cooking, make the sauce - mash the avocado and mix with the sour cream, lemon juice and garlic.
  • Toast the buns/muffins if you like then spread on a thin layer of the avocado cream before topping with the burger. You can serve open or as a regular burger 'sandwich' as you prefer.
