Baked Salmon Burgers

Here's another staple in my apartment. I like to make a batch of these to keep in my fridge for busy weeks when I know I'll need to grab a healthy lunch or dinner.

I just got back from my first official training run for the March 2010 NYC Half Marathon and I was STARVING. Lucky for me, the salmon burgers were ready & waiting. I threw together a quick salad of mesclun, avocado, naval oranges & pomegranate seeds, added a mashed sweet potato which I baked Sunday night, and squeezed some lemon juice & fresh orange juice over my entire plate. Presto! Healthy, delicious & filling dinner in 5 minutes.

Baked Salmon Burgers
15 oz (2 cans) of salmon, drained
2 egg whites
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup ground gf oats
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped scallions, green & white parts included
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped

Preheat your oven to 450 F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet. I like to use my Misto filled with olive oil for this.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Divide the mixture into 6-8 (depending on how big you like) patties. I use a 1/3 measuring cup & usually end up with 7 burgers.
Baked for 15 minutes, carefully turn the burgers over and bake for an additional 8 minutes. To prevent them from falling apart, I usually let them rest for 10 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!
