If ever there was a super-quick, super-satisfying and super-nourishing easy meal to curb the cravings of a burger on the go, then this fish burger is it. The secret is in the delicious yoghurt caper sauce, my take on the humble tartare.

Serves: 2



  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 300g salmon, skinned & deboned, sliced into 1cm thick pieces
  • 2 wholemeal burger buns, sliced in half
  • ½ medium to large avocado, mashed
  • ½ cup rocket leaves
  • 2–3 pickles or as desired
  • 1 tbsp finely sliced red onion

  • Yoghurt Caper Sauce
  • ½ cup natural yoghurt
  • 3 tsp small capers
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped herbs — dill, coriander or basil all work well
