Teriyaki Salmon Patties with Grilled Pineapple
The flavors of teriyaki combined with salmon to make a flavorful patty for an easy meal. Topped with grilled pineapple and avocado to compliment the savory salmon patties.
- 1.5 lbs fresh wild caught salmon (2-3 cups flaked)
- ½ cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
- 3 Tbsp. fresh chives, chopped
- 2 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated
- 4 large garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
- 2 Tbsp. toasted sesame seed oil
- 2 Tbsp. Sprouts Brand Apple cider Vinegar
- 4 Tbsp. coconut aminos
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- Sprouts Brand Coconut Oil
- 1-2 cups sliced pineapple, grilled
- 1 avocado, sliced
- Cilantro for garnish
- Preheat the oven broiler on high.
- Cook the salmon fillet on a baking sheet just until cooked and easily flakes, about 15-20 minutes.
- Using two forks, flake the salmon away from the skin and put into a food processor.
- To the food processor add the herbs, garlic, oil, vinegar, coconut aminos, egg and salt.
- Pulse the food processor to combine and chop all the ingredients together.
- The mixture should be slightly moist and hold together well when formed into a patty.
- Heat two tsp. coconut oil in a large saute pan over medium heat.
- Using a 3-4 oz. scoop, place the mixture into your hands to form a round patty.
- Place the patties in the hot pan being careful not to splash yourself with the hot oil.
- Add four patties to the pan at a time depending on how big of a pan you use.
- Cook until the patties are golden brown on one side about five minutes and carefully flip to cook on the other side until golden, about another five minutes.
- Complete the cooking steps until all the patties are cooked.
- Serve with grilled pineapple slices, avocado and sprinkle with cilantro.
**Note: these patties can also be cooked in the oven by laying the patties on a lined baking sheet. Cook at 375 degree F for 5-8 minutes, flip them over and cook another 5-8 minutes. They won’t get as brown in the oven, but will be delicious just the same.
