These tasty salmon fritters are easy to whip up for lunch or make as a tasty snack. Salmon is high in calcium (providing you leave the bones in), which is great for those of us on the low FODMAP diet who can’t tolerate dairy products. These fritters make great burger patties or you can serve them on top of rice vermiclli noodles & stir-fried veggies.
Buy gluten free burger buns, bread, and wraps that do not contain any high FODMAP ingredients like inulin, apple or pear juice, apple fibre, concentrated fruit juices, honey, or high fructose corn syrup. Also check what low FODMAP flours have been used, avoid gluten free products that contain amaranth flour, lupin flour, chickpea/besan/gram/garbanzo bean flour, lentil flour or large amounts of soy flour or coconut flour.
If not all of your household need to be low FODMAP you can buy them normal burger buns.
Check the crushed ginger does not contain garlic. Crushed ginger is grated ginger that has been preserved in a jar. You can swap it for fresh ginger if you prefer.
Make sure you buy plain canned salmon that doesn’t have added high FODMAP ingredients like onion or garlic. You can use fresh salmon if you prefer, but you will need to cook it first.
Check the puffed rice doesn't include high FODMAP ingredients like inulin, honey, apple or pear juice, or fruit juice concentrate. Small amounts of barley malt, golden syrup or molasses are likely to within low FODMAP limits.
Choose a mayonnaise that does not include onion or garlic powder. We like using Best Foods Mayonnaise (Lite or regular). If you are a meal plan member you can also grab the recipe for our egg free mayonnaise here.
If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check all packaged products, processed meat (like bacon), nuts, seeds and dried fruit do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
