Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C degrees. Spread green beans out into one even layer on a sheet pan. Toss with oregano and olive oil and roast for 8 to 12 minutes, until tender and golden. When done roasting, finish with some salt, pepper, and a generous squeeze of lemon juice.
  2. While green beans cook, place bacon into a skillet or non-stick pan. Heat up pan over medium-high heat, and cook bacon until golden and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Place onto a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
  3. Drain fat from pan, leaving just 1 tbsp / 15 ml (for 4 servings, adjust accordingly if customizing sizes). Add salmon patties to heated oil. Sear on each side for 2 to 3 minutes. Lower heat to medium, cover pan with a lid or foil, and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Slice avocado. Layer patties with tomatoes, avocado, and bacon. Enjoy with pickles and roasted green beans!
  5. Get started on your slow cooker adobo chicken if making tomorrow night's dinner!

Used cooked salmon from the no drain packs. It fit better into my schedule that I didn't have to skin and chop filet. They were still very good! Tartar sauce was great. Potatoes were ok.

Wasn't sure about this one, but we all enjoyed it. I used canned salmon which worked fine.

This was so fresh and delicious! We added a bit more panko to help hold together. I agree that a veggie side may have been better because I felt like this was such a healthy dish (fresh chopped salmon, parsley, yogurt sauce!)

This was really good. The salmon burgers fell apart a lot when I was cooking them though, but they were still yummy.

Really good! We used store-bought tartar sauce to save time and because we couldn't find capers!
