Mutton burgers with Greek Devilled eggs and smoked salmon – Keto empowerment plate
Mutton burgers are the tastiest burgers any Ketonian or Carnivore person could try. Trust me, if you get nice fatty mutton from your butcher, you’ll be treated with gourmet experience!
Aromatic herbs flavour in mutton burgers
Mutton burgers don’t require all sorts of fancy spices. Good old sea salt and a pinch of black pepper are more than enough. But if the animal was fed properly, as they are in Greece, they will be eating a lot of aromatic herbs. This is something typical for any Mediterranean country, especially for the islands. The flavour and aroma of this meat will surprise you! It will be as if you used thyme, rosemary, bay, basil, and lavender.
With this dish, we are breaking a big Greek superstition!
Meat, fish and eggs all together on a plate?
Yes we can do that and stay alive! 😉
Health benefits of eating mutton and lamb
Both lamb and mutton are rich in top-quality protein and numerous vitamins and minerals. However, mutton is fattier and therefore even better for Ketonians. It is a bit tougher, so you need more time to prepare it. However, if you ask your butcher to mince the mutton 2 times, your burgers will be ready in no time!
When Devilled eggs go Greek and Keto
For this plate of perfection, we played around typical Greek ingredients. We got some organic free range eggs from the village and wanted to make a delicacy with them. What better than Greek goat Feta, some spices and our unmatchable Extra virgin olive oil from Peloponnese?!
Wild smoked salmon advantages
Wild salmon is usually caught in the natural ecosystem such as sea, river or lake. However, half of the salmon sold globally originates in fish farms. These farms use a method acknowledged as aquaculture to produce fish for our plates.
Farmed salmon is filled with concentrated fish feed, while wild salmon eat their natural food. For this purpose, the nutrient balance of wild and farmed salmon vary considerably. For example, you will get a fattier fish from a farm, but the ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 will be not so balanced. When it comes to minerals, wild one is again a winner. To top it all, the taste is always richer if you opt for wild salmon.
This looks delicious! Mutton can be difficult to find but ground lamb is a great substitute. I love to use a ton of oregano in my lamb burgers.
Yes, mutton is something that is not available in all countries, but when you are in Greece, it’s the most affordable yet most delicious meat you can find in any butcher store. We just love it. We spent the whole summer here predominantly eating mutton and seafood! It’s just another level of deliciousness when compared to lamb.
