Salmon-Spinach Avocado Bun Burger

Salmon-Spinach Avocado Bun Burger?

Yes!

Get ready to boost your metabolism and burn calories with this low-carb, keto avocado bun burger.

Okay, I get it… this isn’t exactly a “burger” but what a creative way to make a keto-friendly meal? This recipe is loaded with healthy fatty acids, omega-3, protein and greens. It’s everything you need to set the tone for the rest of the day or simply keep you satiated!

I’m all for adding more avocados to my diet because they make everything taste better. From avocado roses to stuffed avocado boats; there is nothing this versatile that this fruit can’t do. So, when I heard that avocados are creating a fuss in the burger scene, I had to try the latest and greatest Instagram food sensation: the avo-bun! I first hear of such a thing on a trip to Milan. This isn’t the first time I’ve created avocado bun burger like this, but this version has quickly become a fave!

This high-fat, low-carb recipe swaps the classic gluten, carb loaded burger bun with two halves of an avocado, resulting in a ketogenic food lovers’ dream. Then to top it all off, smoked salmon, ribbons of zucchini, and spinach are added.

Messy, savory burgers are a delicious American tradition. And, it's not often the bun that are the messy part of the burger. This has changed ever since avocado burger bun has made that tasty appearance on our Instagram feeds.

You can thank Colette Dike of Fooddeco for this revolutionized concept of buns. The Amsterdam-based food stylist drool-worthy pics of avocado burger buns, is basically a whole, halved, and skinned avocados sandwiching in some pretty amazing ingredients.

Earlier this week, I took a stab at this trend after seeing it on my instafriend's account, briewilly. It was so delicious! It's so many great things all in one meal! And, the best part is that it's gluten-free and keto-friendly with only 7 net carbs, 18g protein, and 46g fat.

What’s in it? Avocado, Just Mayo, in the middle (where the avo pit goes), Whole Foods smoked salmon, bacon, Vital Farms fried egg, sea salt and black sesame seeds.
