Skinny Taste came up with this crazy yummy dinner/lunch idea. I would make some changes to make it allergy friendly that  have worked for me in the past (check out the parentheses)

Naked Salmon Burgers with Sriracha Mayo
Servings: 4 • Size: 1 burger • Old Pts: 6 pts • Points+: 7 pts
Calories: 290 • Fat: 15 g • Carb: 11 g • Fiber: 3 g • Protein: 26 g • Sugar: 2 g
Sodium: 397 mg • Cholesterol: 113 mg


For the Spicy Sriracha Mayo:

  • 3 tbsp light mayonnaise (I would use vegenaise)
  • 1 tbsp sriracha

For the salmon patties:

  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 6 tbsp panko (I would use rice instead and mix it in the food processor which makes it stick together)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pound wild salmon fillet (I would use canned salmon)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten (I would skip this)
  • 1/2 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce (I would use coconut aminos)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher saltcooking spray
  • 4 cups baby arugula
  • 4 oz avocado, sliced


Combine mayonnaise and sriracha, set aside.

Remove the skin from the salmon, and cut about a 4 oz piece off. Place in a food processor or chopper to finely chop. This will help hold the burgers together.  With a knife finely chop the remaining salmon.

In a medium bowl combine the salmon with the bell peppers, panko and garlic.

In a small bowl, combine egg, soy sauce, lemon juice, and salt; add to salmon mixture, tossing gently to combine. Form mixture into 4 patties and refrigerate at least one hour, this will help the burgers become firm and hold together during cooking.

Lightly coat a grill pan or skillet with cooking spray. Place over medium-high heat until hot. Cook the patties 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Place arugula on each plate, top each with salmon burger, 1 tbsp of mayo and avocado slices – enjoy!
