The next time you’re craving a fatty fast food burger, give these salmon patties a whirl instead. The fat in salmon is largely in the form of heart-healthy omega-3s. Plus, salmon is a great source of folate, vitamin B12, niacin, thiamin, and riboflavin. But you won’t be thinking of how healthy salmon is when you eat it — you’ll be too busy savoring every bite of your juicy, flavorful burger!
