Because Cake Is Sooo 1789
In honor of keeping up with my June goals, I came up with a new salmon burger recipe inspired by a post I saw on Pinterest for baked moroccan salmon.
I’ll be honest: When I first started eating fish again (after being vegan for about 5 years), I only ate wild-caught salmon. Yes, I was definitely *that* person incessantly questioning the poor fish-monger at Whole Foods about every aspect of the fish that I could possibly think of.
Origin. Freshness. Sustainability.
By the end of the conversation, I could practically recount my specific fish’s whole genealogy.
Of course, this came about because I wanted to make a completely conscious decision about what I was eating. However, I soon learned that didn’t mean I had to go crazy about it.
As a college student, I’ve learned the importance of flexibility (something that was a very difficult for me and is still a work in progress). I don’t have regular access to fresh, wild-caught salmon from my trusted source (Whole Foods, of course) and, quite honestly, it’s just not always practical for my budget (gotta save for that cute apartment + car after college!).
So, I’ve found other ways to get my sustainable salmon. Many grocery stores sell high-quality wild-caught salmon in cans, which is an easy and affordable staple I now keep in my pantry. I may not be able to have perfectly grilled fresh salmon every night, but I know that delicious salmon burgers are only a few minutes away as a quick snack or meal.
Fast. Easy. Delicious. And, of course, sustainable.
Now that’s what I like to hear.
