Ingredients

Burgers & sauce

  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large wild salmon fillet (10- to 12-oz), skin removed and diced
  • 1/4 cup water, divided
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp each sea salt and ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • ½ cup chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 4 whole-grain hamburger buns
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves

Fries

  • 2 sweet potatoes, cut into ¼-inch-wide fries
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/4 tsp each sea salt and ground black pepper, divided
  • 1/8 tsp paprika, to taste, optional

Preparation

  1. Soak cashews in water for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile prepare fries: Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with oil, salt, pepper and paprika (if using). On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread sweet potatoes in an even layer and bake 35 minutes or until tender, flipping every 10 minutes.
  3. Prepare burgers: In a food processor, place oats; pulse to a flour consistency.
  4. Wipe out bowl used for sweet potatoes and whisk eggs in bowl. Add oat flour, salmon, one-half of water, green onions, salt and pepper; stir until well combined.
  5. In a large skillet on medium, heat oil. Shape salmon mixture into 4 patties and cook 10 minutes, turning once, until golden on each side.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare sauce: In a food processor, combine soaked and drained cashews, remaining one-half water, dill and lemon juice.
  7. To assemble burgers, spread ¼ sauce on each bun; top with red onion, tomato, lettuce and patty. Serve with sweet potato fries.

NOTE: If following our Meal Plan, refrigerate burger components and fries separately; reheat and assemble when called for.
