Wild Alaskan Salmon Burgers
Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 8-12 minutes
1 14.75oz can wild salmon, drain well **see note
1/3 cup oat flour (can make by blending rolled outs in the blender until smooth)
1 tbsp Za’atar seasoning
1 tsp salt
1/2-1 tsp pepper
2 tsp lemon juice
Optional: top each burger with cheese
Add all ingredients to a bowl and mash well with a fork.
Form mixture into patties.

*** NOTE: 🚨 canned salmon usually has a layer of skin and little bones in it. We know this may gross some people out BUT these are perfectly fine to eat and are actually highly concentrated in calcium and vitamin D (great for 🦴 health!) Once you mash everything together well with a fork, the bones break down and you can’t taste them.. but can also pick them out if preferred OR buy skinless, boneless canned salmon!
