Salmon and Asparagus Burgers

The fresh flavours of asparagus and smoked salmon with lemon basil are a perfect combination and make a tasty alternative to a meat burger.

Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus 20 minutes chilling Cooking time: 15 minutes to 20 minutes Serves: 4

100g pack asparagus tips
1 egg
2 x 150g packs Waitrose Prime Scottish Hot Smoked Salmon Flakes
Grated zest of 1 lemon and 1 tbsp juice
50g fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
2 packs fresh lemon basil, chopped
Olive oil, for brushing


Cook the asparagus in boiling water for 4-5 minutes until tender. Drain and cool, then cut the asparagus in half and set the tips aside.

Preheat the grill or barbecue. Place the asparagus stalks in a food processor with the egg and blend to a smooth purée. Add all the remaining ingredients, except for the asparagus tips, season and pulse until combined.

Divide the mixture into 4 and, with wet hands, shape into burgers. Brush the burgers with a little oil and chill for 20 minutes. Cook for 6-8 minutes on each side until cooked through.

Serve each burger in a Waitrose Old Fashioned Wholemeal Roll with iceberg lettuce, lemon mayonnaise and the reserved asparagus tips.
