5 Ingredient Salmon Burger Patties (Guest Post on Ang Sarap)

These 5 ingredient Salmon Burger Patties are gluten, dairy and egg free. They taste fantastic and don’t they just look stunning? Summer in a bun!

Today I am thrilled to be guest posting on Ang Sarap (a Tagalog Word for Delicious). I came across Raymund’s blog over a year ago and have been coming back ever since. I really enjoy reading Raymund’s introductions to each dish – a little history, some trivia and a lot of passion! I also find that his blog has a great mixture of classic recipes and those from his homeland, the Philippines.

As an expat (I’m Polish) living in a foreign land (Australia) I can relate to curing the occasional bout of homesickness with the food I grew up with. However, what I wanted to showcase to Ang Sarap readers is my simple approach to cooking tasty, allergy-friendly food.

And so, while a few of the actual burger ensemble ingredients may contain gluten, dairy or eggs, they can be easily substituted for allergen-free versions that suit your particular needs.

So let’s see… bun – use gluten free breadroll or 2 slices of bread; yoghurt – try soy yoghurt; sesame seeds – buy plain buns; eggs – well, most buns are made without eggs so you should be safe.

E-cookbook update

I am also extremely excited to confirm that My Whole Food Philosophy will be launching on the blog on Monday. There is a great giveaway planned for the launch and for a limited time, the e-cookbook will be available for free. So sign up now to receive the good news to your inbox come Monday.

Hi Martyna, just found your wonderul blog. Can I ask what you would recommend using instead of yoghurt? We are slightly dairy intolerant.

Martyna @ Wholesome Cook July 27, 2012 at 7:30 pm

Hi Susan, thank you for your kind words. You could use mayonnaise or even hummus instead of yoghurt. :-)

Gorgeous burgers! The yogurt, wasabi and capers sauce sounds extraordinary. I use capers all the time, they are one of my staples, so I will certainly use your idea soon. Thanks for the inspiration and congratulations on the guest post.
