Salmon Burgers (gluten free, dairy free)

Salmon BurgersSalmon burgers! I forgot how easy these are to make with a few simple ingredients.

Salmon is a source of  good cholesterol (omega-3 fatty acids) which also plays a vital role in keeping you healthy. Omega 3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation in the body and is essential to brain health. Salmon is also rich in essential minerals like iron, calcium, selenium and phosphorus, as well as vitamins like A, B and D. Selenium, which is necessary for metabolism of tissues, hair, and nails, is best obtained from animal proteins.
