Food Review: Fremont Fish Market Chipotle Alaska Salmon Burgers

Fremont Fish Market Chipotle Alaska Salmon Burgers
Tasty salmon, in burger form

I try to eat fish 2-3 times a week, it's a great source of protein.  My freezer always has a couple of varieties of frozen fish fillets stocked, perhaps some shrimp, and I love the convenience of those tuna foil packs which make a great sandwich wrap, or impromptu snack.

With that convenience in mind, I picked up some Fremont Fish Market Salmon Burgers at my latest grocery shop.

Fremont Fish Market is an Aldi private label brand and they make a full line of frozen fish products, offering a large variety of fish and preparation methods.  You can get salmon, flounder, tilapia, shrimp, etc., and the selection ranges from frozen (raw), grilled, and breaded, to include specialty items such as crab cakes and lobster bites.

I was looking for something a little more convenient to prepare than frozen fish fillets and when I came across the salmon burgers, I quickly snagged a box.  It doesn't get much more convenient than protein in patty form.    I have fond memories of my mom making salmon patties when I was a kid.  Made from scratch using canned salmon, the convenience of frozen salmon 'burgers' at the grocery store wasn't available back in the day.  So how will these 'burgers' stack up to what mom used to make?

They brown up nicely, I heated the 'burgers' up per the instructions using the pan fry method.  You can also warm them up using the oven, or the grill, which I'll be trying next.  Heating the patties up in the microwave is not recommended.  After heating the salmon up in a bit of olive oil for about 4.5 minutes per side, I enjoyed a salmon burger with an egg over easy for breakfast.

It's a good patty, the browning on the exterior provides a nice little light crispy texture bite, leading to a juicy, flaky salmon interior.  The chipotle notes are subtle, complimenting the fish.

There are four salmon burgers per pack, each weighing 2.8 ounces, so they're a bit on the small side and could be somewhat lost if paired up with a larger bun.  Those patties pack a good protein punch though at 15 grams, with just 1 carb gram and only 140 calories.  

Costing me $4.99 at Aldi, I'm giving Fremont Fish Market Chipotle Alaska Salmon Burgers 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap Stars.  They're not quite as good as what mom used to make, but they are still quite tasty, very convenient, and worthy of a repeat buy.
