Last week the lovely folks at FlatOut Bread sent me a box of delicious goodies to try*. I was so freaking excited when they contacted me that I was literally counting down the days until my box arrived. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint. It was jam packed with goodies and I immediately dug in.
I was super intrigued by the crisps because I’d never seen them before. I grabbed the multigrain flavor and some sweet potato hummus and took them to the pool to share with friends. The crisps are great! They come in really fun, random shapes and I love the taste. One of my friends said it was the “best healthy thing he’s ever eaten” So there you have it. That bag only lasted a day and I can’t wait to try the other flavors (garlic and herb, four cheese and sea salt).
I’m especially impressed with the nutrition information for all of FlatOut’s products. The multigrain crisps have 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving!
I’ve eaten the wraps before, but have yet to try some of the new flavors and I have big plans to make some personal pizzas on the Italian Herb variety.
Last night we tried the FoldIt Artisan Flatbreads for dinner. They’re being marketed as hamburger bun replacements and I’m definitely on board that train. I wanted to whip up some fun burgers for us to try them out!
I had some salmon thawing in the fridge so I opted to make salmon burgers. To make them a little more exciting, I started thinking about what I could add to them. For some reason peanuts popped into my head, but after googling, all I could really find were salmon burgers with peanut sauce. Inspired by this recipe, I decided to just wing it.
Here’s what I came up with:
Thai Peanut Salmon Burgers
Cook Time: 20 min
Keywords: bake pan sear grill burger entree healthy salmon
Ingredients (4 burgers)
- 1 lb fresh salmon
- 1/2 c sliced green onion
- 2 Tbsp low sodium teryaki or soy sauce
- 2 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
- 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter
- 1 tsp fresh ground ginger
- 1/4 c plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1/4 c lightly salted peanuts, roughly chopped
- 1/2 c panko breadcrumbs
1. Cook salmon in a hot pan until cooked through. Flake with a fork and let cool slightly. (You could also used pre-cooked salmon or canned salmon)
2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until well-mixed.
3. Form into 4 patties and place in the freezer while the oven preheats to 425 degrees F. (You could also cook these in a pan or on the grill, but I would still recommend freezing them for at least 15 minutes)
4. Cook 18 minutes, flipping once until heated through and brown on both sides.
I told them hubby while these were in the oven that they were either going to turn out REALLY well or taste horrible. As luck with have it, they’re phenomenal!
Serve on a FlatOut Artisan Flatbread with some green beans
The Greek yogurt helps keep these nice and moist and they have great flavor. They’re also super healthy and packed with protein and omega-3’s!
What’s the best homemade burger you’ve ever made?
