To say that I have become more adventurous in the kitchen is an understatement. Recently, I have learned to make my own sushi, I have frequented the Asian aisle in the grocery store, I have played around with different flours to create delicious bread, and I have developed a small obsession with fermented foods. Getting back to the point of this post…I want to talk about the fermented food called miso! Miso is a paste that is made from fermented soybeans and barley or a rice malt. It is most popular in Asian cooking. The reason I love miso so much is because it’s an excellent probiotic (you known—that good bacteria!).
I am a lacto-ovo-pescatarian, but I tell most people I am vegetarian, because, well, it's a lot easier. Being a lacto-ovo-pescatarian means I eat/drink milk, eggs, and fish products. With that being said, I don't make hamburgers in my house. They just don't exist because I do not eat them nor do I enjoy cooking them. My poor carnivore husband suffers (insert incredible sarcasm because I still make him deliciously healthy food). Although I may not make burgers with beef or turkey, I love making burgers from salmon. I have an all-time favorite wasabi salmon burger recipe that I will share in the future, but for now, I am sharing this ginger salmon burger recipe. The spiciness of the ginger mixed with the creaminess of the salmon goes together like peas & carrots.
