Healthy salmon burgers which are family favourites for both toddlers and children. Quinoa is a great source of protein and a good alternative to potato - so it's win-win for everyone!
100g cooked quinoa
150g cooked salmon, boned, skinned and flaked
100g smoked salmon, finely chopped
Juice of 0.5 lemon
2 spring onions, finely sliced
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
1 medium free-range egg
1.5 tablespoons plain flour
2 tablespoons cold pressed sunflower oil for frying
Freshly ground black pepper (optional)
Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients except the oil.
Divide the mixture into 4 even-sized patties. Place on the lined tray and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the fishcakes over a medium heat for 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through.
Serve on their own or with a side vegetable.

These salmon burgers can be made into smaller patties as a finger food for babies. Replace the smoked salmon with cooked salmon to keep the salt level low and serve with steamed veggies a delicious dip such as our Beetroot Hummus.
Our yummy Fish Pie is a firm favourite with little diners, and the perfect way to introduce toddlers to fish. It contains tender bite-sized pieces of salmon and pollock gently cooked in a creamy cheese and leek sauce, and topped with a potato and root veg mash.
