Caveman Cuisine: Salmon Burgers

Cheap and tasty, these salmon burgers will make you say, "Want some salmon cake?"


1 large (~14oz) can salmon
1 tbsp roasted green chilis (I like the preservative free Hatch brand)
1/4 white onion (diced)
3 cloves garlic (diced)
1 egg yolk 
2-3 large basil leaves (finely chopped)
Fresh black pepper
Avocado oil (to grease pan)
Sour cream or coconut cream (optional for topping)
Sriracha hot chili sauce (optional for topping)


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Cover a a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease with a small amount of avocado oil (coconut oil or butter would work as well). 

In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all ingredients except sour cream/coconut cream and Sriracha.  Form the mixture into 3-4 patties and place on the greased baking sheet.

Cook the burgers for 20-25 minutes.

Top the burgers with a dollop of sour cream or coconut cream and a drizzle of Sriracha.

Note: If you want a simple, complete dinner, toss 1/2 head broccoli and 1/2 head cauliflower with 2-3 tbsp avocado oil and put in a roasting pan.  The veggies will take just about the same amount of time to cook as the burgers and make for a delicious side.
