Recipe: Golden Turmeric Ginger Salmon Burgers

One of my absolute favorite protein-rich pantry staples to keep on hand is canned salmon. We love grabbing a couple cans when we buy from Thrive Market which is pretty much every month- and they're awesome to have on hand for quick lunches and dinners.

I usually make them the same way (lemon basil are our go-to) but I was craving something different (meals can get a bit boring when you're utilizing similar ingredients over and over to avoid going shopping) and the easiest way to mix things up is always to mix up the flavor profile. When my six year old (she's the best helper) suggested turmeric, I'll admit I was hesitant at first- but once I mixed up my first test batch, I was sold. Enjoy these delicious pantry-friendly salmon patties with our new favorite rainbow apple cabbage salad, some greens or on a toasted bun.

I can't wait to see how they taste off the grill, this summer!
