Salmon Burger on Toasted Onion Roll

Salmon Burger

It’s Monday.  Honestly I did not have a What’s for Dinner plan until leaving work at 5:30 pm.  Salmon is always a favorite go-to protein for us and readily available.  It’s the “if all else fails, we can always have Salmon” and we know it will be a good meal.  I recently tried something new with Salmon ~ Salmon Meatballs.  They were so moist and flavorful and pop in your mouth get me another good that we had to revisit that recipe.

While we don’t eat a lot of bread, these soft onion rolls were fresh from the bakery oven and I’m a sucker for food that speaks to me through smell.  Mmmmm….. they were a great choice for this burger.

  • Rough chop salmon in food processor.
  • Combine all remaining ingredients, then add salmon and mix until just combined.
  • Make into 2 patties.
  • Cook in saute pan with 1 Tbl. oil over med-low heat (to get the beautiful browning, do not use a non-stick skillet).
  • Our desired doneness may be different than yours. We cooked to 120 degrees, about 5 minutes per side, then let rest for about 5 minutes.

      Not sure the canned would welcome all the lovely flavors in this burger. But if fresh isn’t available and you’re having a salmon burger hankering, give it a try. My husband is chiming in saying he grew up with canned salmon patties and the fresh is definitely the way to go :)
