Aside from salmon, this salmon burger recipe uses ingredients you probably already have in your fridge and pantry. You will need:
- Fresh Wild-caught salmon
- Dijon mustard
- Panko breadcrumbs
- Salt & pepper
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Remove the skin from the salmon and cut it into cubes. Then, add the salmon along with the egg, dijon mustard and lemon juice to a food processor or high-powered blender.
Pulse the mixture until it forms a paste then transfer to a bowl and add in remaining ingredients. Using your hands, mix and form the mixture into 4 patties (add more breadcrumbs if mixture is too wet or more lemon juice if it is too dry).
Place the burgers on the baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Then remove the burgers from the oven and serve on a bun with fries and a salad. Enjoy!
- Chili lime- I love Trader Joe's chili lime seasoning. For this variation, I replace the lemon with lime and add the chili lime seasoning, all other ingredients stay the same.
- Jalapeño cilantro- this is perfect if you're a fan of spice! Replace lemon with lime and add 1 small diced jalapeño.
- Sir Kensington's sriracha mayo or special sauce- I'm not the biggest fan of mayo but I love these.
