Gluten-free salmon burgers
When I initially meet with clients who are new to gluten-free living, one of their main concerns is what to eat for dinner. It can be overwhelming to sort through your freezer or pantry and figure out what’s safe to eat and what’s no longer on the menu.
In my experience, the easiest way to switch to a gluten-free diet is to embrace a return to a whole foods approach to eating. This does involve more time spent prepping for meals, but it’s so worth it when you start to reap the benefits of this approach. Eliminating most packaged foods and incorporating more homemade foods brings you more energy, more vitality, and better sleep.
When I’m creating menu plans for my clients I try to find and create simple and delicious whole food recipes, much like this recipe for Salmon Burgers. The original version called for half a cup of all-purpose flour so I subbed it for almond flour, a simple and nutritious change.
These Salmon Patties won’t take long to make, pair them with a side salad and some roasted vegetables, and you have an easy and delicious gluten-free dinner on the table.
