AWESOME Ketogenic Recipe! Salmon Burgers with Avocado Salsa Recipe

This recipe was reprinted with permission from the Thrive Market.  I have tried this recipe and it’s one of my favorites! This post may contain affiliate links.



It’s burger night, with a twist! Our ocean-inspired patty is filled with chunks of non-GMO salmon meat and spiced with paprika, cumin, and just a touch of cayenne. And since every burger can use a creamy condiment to go alongside, we’ve stirred up a fresh summer salsa with avocado, green onion, and lime. For a great gluten-free and Paleo meal, skip the bun or make your own low-carb bun.
