Cilantro Lime Salmon Burgers {Paleo, Gluten-Free & Lectin-Free}Cilantro Lime Salmon Burgers {Paleo, Gluten-Free & Lectin-Free}Necessity is the mother of invention, or so they say. I’ve been pushing around a pound of ground wild caught salmon in our freezer for the past few weeks, not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with it.

Of course it’s hard to resist making my Salmon Meatballs with Dijon Lemon Sauce or my Salmon Meatballs with Caper Dill Tarter Sauce – they are both seriously good recipes but I wasn’t craving a meatball. It’s July, the peak of summer and I wanted something more seasonally relevant.. like a burger.

But I didn’t want a plain salmon burger and I really didn’t want a salmon patty – they just seemed too dated… talk about 90’s right?

Back to necessity, I had a giant bunch of cilantro that was also begging to be used and a bunch of limes… My Cilantro Lime Salmon Burgers were born.

And don’t worry if you don’t have a source for pre-ground/flaked salmon, just remove the skin and break apart fresh, raw salmon with your hands or by pulsing in your food processor.
