This dinner was soooo easy and so good!!! Homemade salmon burgers, grilled veggies with a red onion ‘chutney’ and fresh tomatoes…soon to be from the garden (hurray!) that I drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with unrefined sea salt.

What You’ll Need

  • A bunch of asparagus
  • Half a large bulb of fennel
  • 1 or 2 yellow zucchini
  • A few TBSP olive oil
  • A few TBSP of your favourite herb blend
  • A couple of tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Splash of maple syrup
  • A squeeze of lemon/lemon juice
  • 1 pound of salmon fillets, skins removed, then cubed
  • 2 cups cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1/4 cup grated frozen ginger
  • 1 TBSP soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha or your favourite hot sauce
  • A splash any vegetable oil

Step 1: Prepping the vegetables

Put the veggies in a bowl and toss with a couple tablespoons of olive oil and a couple tablespoons of your favourite herb blend (e.g. minced garlic, parsley, oregano…whatever you enjoy) until well coated. Grill them on the barbeque for a few minutes. The tomatoes were added as a garnish to the finished platter.

Step 2: Cooking the salmon burgers

Here is the recipe: http://chefmichaelsmith.com/Recipe/grilled-salmon-burgers-with-pickled-red-onions/ I didn’t make the pickled red onions suggested in the recipe, but they inspired me to make a quick red onion chutney.

Step 3: Chutney

I winged the ‘chutney’ you see on the veggies (and it was equally yummy on the burger by the way). I didn’t really measure the ingredients, but it was about 1/4 cup of diced red onion, 1 to 2 TBSP of olive oil, 1 TBSP of whole grain mustard, 1 TSP of balsamic vinegar and a splash of maple syrup. Whisk it all together and enjoy on the veggies and burger! A squeeze of fresh lemon juice over everything was delicious too! Look forward to making these burgers again! Enjoy!
