This simple recipe is packed full of flavor and is the perfect recipe for busy weeknights!

With the new year, I’ve made lists of all the things we can do as a family to live a little lighter in the new year. Some of the key things I want to do this year is to make some better-for-you swaps in our favorite recipes in order to eat lighter this year. While researching cooking oils, I just found out some helpful information. A clinical study showed Mazola® Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, see Mazola.com. So the first ingredient on my better choice swap ingredient list is Mazola® Corn Oil!

My family and I love typical fast food like burgers, pizza and subs. So instead of making only super light dinners, I like to compromise. I try to remake our favorite type of fast foods in the lightest way possible. For instance, on burger night we now have salmon burgers instead of beef burgers. Salmon is full of good-for-you fats and makes an amazing burger that my whole family loves.

To make these burgers even lighter, I also add chopped fresh chopped kale. That’s the pretty green color. I found chopped the kale in the food processor very fine mais a great way to add kale to salmon burgers. It adds taste and color and most importantly, nutrition! I also add lots of finely chopped onion, garlic and lemon. And my secret ingredient is spicy mustard in my burgers. It adds a great flavor!

To cook these burgers, I use a small amount of Mazola® Corn Oil in a large skillet and cook them over medium heat until done. Swapping Mazola® Corn Oil for extra virgin olive oil is a great choice for this recipe. Mazola® Corn Oil has a neutral taste that won’t affect the flavor of my ingredients, so it works perfect with the fish plus lots of other everyday recipes too.

Mazola® is great for lots of different recipes. It’s made with 100% pure oil with no additives, so the wonderful flavor of your food comes through. The flavor is very neutral so that it doesn’t negatively impact the taste your ingredients. It also has a smoke point higher than most cooking oils (450°F) and performs extremely well in lots of different cooking, including stir-frying, sautéing, grilling and even baking. And most importantly, all Mazola® oils are cholesterol free!

To top these tasty salmon kale burgers, I use a yogurt mustard sauce instead of a traditional mayo based tartar sauce. I mix together spicy brown mustard, plain yogurt, lemon juice and dill relish for this tasty creamy sauce. Using Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise a better-for-you swap that makes these burgers irresistible!

You can find Mazola® Corn Oil 40 oz at your favorite grocer nationwide.
