What better way to enjoy the warmer weather than with some fresh seafood. We all know that salmon is a great source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats, but did you know this fish also contains proteins that can be helpful for joint cartilage, insulin resistance, and reducing gut inflammation? The salmon and dulse flakes both add a high content of iodine to keep your thyroid gland functioning optimally. With tigernut flour as the binder, you also get a good dose of prebiotics to feed the good bacteria in your gut.

You can enjoy these salmon burgers in a lettuce wrap or even throw it on a salad for some extra protein!
