We love this healthier alternative to this handheld classic. Here’s why we opted to use salmon as the main protein source:
Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
These fatty acids are typically low in a standard North American diet, so it’s important to eat as it can reduce inflammation, support heart and brain health.
It’s rich in Vitamin D.
About 1/3 of Canadians aren’t getting enough vitamin D, so it’s important to supplement or eat vitamin D rich foods like salmon! Vitamin D is essential for maintaining bone health and supporting the immune system.
It’s a great protein.
Not only does it help increase feelings of fullness, salmon provides all the essential amino acids needed for muscle growth and repair, making it a great pre or post workout protein.
Give these salmon burgers a chance, we’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do!
