Ramen salmon and halumi burger
Ever since I heard of a ramen burger I have been so curious to try one. I have never found them on any menu but one day I came across this blog and decided to make one myself. It seemed waiting to find one on a menu was a long way off. I had never even thought I could make them but this was a truly simple and it was finally my turn!
I wanted a seafood burger and opted for salmon as it is delicious and has lots of flavour, I thought it would be good with the noodles inspired by seafood ramen.
I followed the recipe above except I didn’t have a flavour pack so I added salt, pepper and sesame seeds to the noodles. The sesame added a slight nuttiness that I liked.

I did try one and as they might not be as pretty and professional looking they were delicious. The outside was crispy and the inside soft and chewy.
preparation time 15 minutes
cooking time 5-8 minutes
- 250 gr or 8.8 oz salmon fillet
- a piece of fresh ginger, about 1.5 cm or 0.6 inch
- 1 red chilli
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp corn flour
- salt & pepper
Cut the salmon in to fine cubes. Add the other ingredients and mix.
Mix and shape the salmon in to patties. Pan fry and keep warm whilst pan frying the halumi.
Mix a sauce, 1.5 tbsp low fat yogurt, 1 tbsp half fat creme fraiche, 1 tsp wasabi paste, 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, salt to taste to go with the burger and serve with lettuce and sliced fresh tomato.
I am glad I made the burgers as I finally got to eat some. I am quite sure I will make them again, it is so interesting but I will add more interesting spices to the noodles and I would make a spicier sauce but it was still good.
