Ingredients You'll Need
To make these salmon lettuce wraps you'll need 9 simple ingredients.
- Salmon fillets
- Almond flour
- Garlic powder
- Lemon zest
- Olive oil
How To Make Salmon Lettuce Wraps
To get started, heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a non stick pan over medium high heat. Use a paper towel to pat dry the salmon fillets, then sauté them for 3 to 5 minutes.
Use a fork to flake the salmon fillets into small flakes or pieces.
Take a large mixing bowl and combine the egg, flaked salmon, almond flour, lemon zest, dill and a pinch of salt and black pepper.
Knead everything together until you get a dough. Shape the dough into four salmon burgers.
Heat the remaining olive oil in a non-stick pan over a medium high heat. Cook the salmon burgers for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until slightly golden.
To serve, take two lettuce leaves and add a dollop of mayonnaise on each. Or better yet serve them with my homemade spicy garlic aioli!
Place the salmon burgers in between the lettuce and wrap them together. Serve hot and enjoy!
In the fridge: To store any leftover salmon burgers place them in an airtight container and keep the refrigerated where they'll keep for up to 2 days.
In the freezer: You can store these salmon burgers in a freezer proof container for up to 3 months. When you're ready to use the burgers let them thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.
To reheat: You can reheat the burgers slowly in a non-stick pan over a medium-low heat. Add a splash of water into the pan and then cover it to steam the burgers. If you're in a hurry you can also place them in the microwave, so they're great to take to work!
