“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Fish „
Tesco brought these salmon burgers out as part of their bbq range in the summer and I love them, you only get 2 in a pack for £1.99 but they are quite big and very filling so that doesn't matter.
They cook in about 15 minutes so that's just right for a bbq when you want everything cooked as soon as possible.
The salmon is in big chunks and the batter coating the fish cake is very light and has had herbs mixed into it so it tastes more interesting than normal fishcake batter.
The salmon burgers taste a bit fishy, I don't think the taste of the salmon is overpowering but you can deffo taste that it's the main ingredient. I haven't got the box now to check but I'm sure I also tasted some white fish in there as well. The burgers have got dill, parsley and other herbs in them and I think that brings out the flavour of the salmon and yummy batter just right.
I didn't want a meat burger so I had one of these in a bun with some mayo and it was just as satisfying as a beef quarter pounder, the burger is chewy but comes apart just right in my mouth and the flavour of the salmon comes through much stronger when you've given it a good old chew! lol
I recommend these burgers for anyone who's bored of normal burgers on their bbq, these salmon ones are yummy and I say give them a try today!
Out of all the ready-prepared BBQ food that my fiancé's Mum bought, these Salmon Burgers were the biggest surprise. The thought of a burger made from salmon wasn't very appealing and as we took them out of the box and saw this pink disc, we were certain they would be dry and horrible.
At the time we had the BBQ I couldn't get my head around the concept of a burger made from salmon. But now when I think about it, it's really just like a fish cake, but in a Thai fish cake way and not one filled with potato.
With a cooking time of only 14 minutes from frozen, they cooked quickly and the burger was surprisingly succulent. I do like salmon, but I thought these would have a strange fishy taste. I can't say that they taste distinctly of salmon, but they do have a nice flavour which I can't quite put my finger on! My fiancé's Dad doesn't like salmon, but he did like these when he tried a piece.
I think these are a bargain at £2 for 2 burgers, as fish is generally quite expensive. I don't know what the percentage of fish is in these burgers as the information isn't available on the Tesco website and we've thrown away the packaging! But the texture of them is predominantly fish and not a lot of filler ingredients.
Although I did enjoy eating these, I wouldn't specifically request that they be bought on a regular basis, only because I prefer a nice piece of fresh fish. However, they did make a nice change to the usual burgers and sausages and they were an easy way to cook fish on the BBQ as they held their shape really well.
