Sara Louise’s Keto Salmon Burgers With Homemade Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce

Ever wanted to make burgers seem less ordinary while keeping them keto friendly?

Let us be honest lots of burger recipes can be bland and highly unexciting. As with a lot of recipes the healthier you try to make it, the more uninspiring it seems to come. After all there is a good reason most kids prefer fries to lettuce. The good news is that these keto salmon burgers blow the roof off boring.

Firstly my keto salmon burgers ditch the red or white meat and swap in delicious salmon. They are homemade naturally and juiced up with tasty Thai sweet chilli sauce and red pepper. For a burger they are super healthy and the carbs in this keto burger recipe are cut to a minimum. I do recommend that you try preparing these keto salmon burgers using a high end skillet or frying pan. The reason being that salmon can be rather fragile and may splinter when cooking. So if you are cooking for guest please bear this in mind.

I find this keto seafood burger recipe particularly refreshing to make since we avoid using any red or white meat which are the traditional staple of burgers. So if you love salmon you will adore preparing my keto salmon burgers with homemade Thai sweet chilli sauce recipe. Perfect for weekends or handing out at gatherings also, have fun seafood lovers!
