Chatelaine Triple Tested

The combination of salmon, ground flaxseeds and avocado delivers a double omega punch. Serve on multi-grain rye toast, with Boston lettuce and grainy Dijon.


  • 500 g fresh salmon fillets

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 green onion, finely chopped

  • 3 tbsp flax meal

  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 avocado, diced


  • Remove and discard skin from salmon. Chop salmon into 1/2-in. pieces, then transfer to a large bowl. Stir in egg, onion, flax meal, dill, lemon juice and salt. Gently stir in avocado.

  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Spray pan with cooking spray. Scoop a heaping 1/2-cup portion into pan. Press into a 1-in.-thick round patty. Repeat, cooking 2 patties at a time. Cook until bottoms are golden-brown and crisp, 3 to 4 min. Flip and continue cooking until salmon is cooked through, about 3 more min. Top with pickled-ginger relish or peach salsa.
