One of my favourite memories so far this summer was when the boys caught their very first fish. It was such a thrill for them to feel the tug on the end of the line as the fish grabbed hold of the bait. They were totally enthralled as the fisherman showed them how to reel the fish in and scoop it up with their net. There was a lot of giggling and squealing when they tossed the fish into the bucket and it splashed around wildly, throwing water in every direction. That evening, we grilled the fish on the barbecue so the boys were able to have a taste of the fish they had caught.
Once we had a taste of fresh fish on the grill, we couldn’t wait to have more. We didn’t catch the salmon for these burgers, but the boys did come with me to the store to pick it out and carried it home for me. They’re such good helpers.
I tried out this salmon burger recipe from Clubhouse.ca using Club House La Grille Steakhouse Onion Burger Seasoning. I love the combination of salmon and avocado in this recipe. It reminded me of a family favourite, salmon avocado sandwiches, that I often make for lunch.
The kids didn’t love the burger, but they didn’t hate it either. Bennett said it was “a little bit good, but a little it bad.” Cole said it was “so-so.” Ayla was in an awful mood because she was covered with itchy mosquito bites from our camping trip, so she wasn’t feeling much like eating. She did perk up when I brought out the camera and had fun photo-bombing my pictures of the boys.
Tony was really impressed with this meal. He often orders a salmon burger when we go out for dinner, and he declared that this burger was even better than any salmon burger he’s had in a restaurant. I’ve never used this burger seasoning before (or any kind of burger seasoning for that matter), but I think I’ll be using it a lot from now on.
