Pescetarian Dream: Salmon and Egg White Breakfast Burger

Pescetarian Breakfast Burger

 

Yep, even healthy eaters can enjoy burgers for breakfast–But of course, I don’t mean the artery-clogging piece of grease sandwiched between 2 slabs of even more grease. A good breakfast burger certainly does not need all that extra trans fat to become edible.

This salmon and egg white burger naturally contains all the good Omega 3 fats and proteins to help get you started. In other words, what a great way to start the day for breakfast/brunch lovers!

This is one of our favorite, healthiest, and quickest DIY breakfast options, and at only 260 calories per “burger”! Not to mention the nutritional benefits in this bun of morning glory…have a quick look at the nutrition chart:

This breakfast burger is super-rich in Vitamins K and A, Folic Acid, Selenium, Manganese, Phosphorus, and protein. Nevertheless, this breakfast burger is a great source for calcium, vitamin E, B vitamins (Thiamin-B1, Riboflavin- B2, and Niacin-B3), magnesium, zinc, and copper!

So by now you can tell why we love this…

To make a long story short, all you need is the following:

a wholegrain burger bun

2 egg whites

1 tbsp finely chopped bell peppers

1 tbsp finely minced onions or scallions

around 1-2 slivers of smoked salmon (about 30-50 grams), cut into small squares

a pinch of black pepper

a pinch of chives

1 tsp parsley (fresh or dried flakes)

1 slice of low fat cheese

1 cup fresh spinach

2 tsp organic canola oil (rapeseed oil)

Preparation Method:

1. Heat one teaspoon of oil in a skillet, and add the chopped spinach. Saute for around 3 minutes, until the spinach softens (and becomes a bright green color). Remove the spinach from the skillet and place on the bottom half of the bun.

2.Heat the other teaspoon of oil, and saute the onions until soft. Add in the pepper chops and the salmon.

3. Meanwhile, mix the egg whites with the pepper, salt, chives, and parsley.

4. Add the egg mix to the skillet, and cook the omelet until well done.

5. Place the omelet onto the spinach, top with the cheese slice, and close the bun.

6. Optional: Toast for about 1 minute, or until the cheese begins to melt. The toasting process further reduces the calorie intake from the bread.

Enjoy!
