The very moment I took my very first bite I decided salmon burgers are terribly underrated.
The salmon burger was so surprisingly delicious. My mouth watered for more.
It was then I realized a new love!
To make these gloriously delectable salmon burgers canned salmon is mixed with bread crumbs, onion, garlic, Dijon, mayonnaise, lemon, dill and parsley then formed into burgers, coated in panko and pan-fried to a golden crispy finish.
The panko crumbs give them a nice crusty coating to complement the creamy, flavorful interiors. And a dollop of dill tartar sauce brings out their best.
Aside from being economical, they’re easy to make using pantry ingredients and can also be frozen.
- 1 can (14.75 oz) skinless, boneless pink salmon, drained and flaked
- ½ cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ½ cup panko crumbs
- vegetable oil, for pan-frying
- 4 hamburger buns or 8 small flatbreads
- lettuce, tomato
andonion for serving
- ½ cup regular or low-fat mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
- 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
- sea or Kosher salt and fresh black pepper
- In a large mixing bowl combine salmon, bread crumbs, egg, onion, garlic, mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, dill, parsley and black pepper. Refrigerate mixture 30 minutes, then form into 4 patties. Add the panko to a shallow dish and coat the patties with them, pressing them on with your hands.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add enough oil to generously coat bottom of
pan. Fry until golden brown on bottom, turn over and continue to cook until browned on both sides.
- Serve on toasted hamburger buns or flatbreads topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and tartar sauce as desired.
- Combine first three ingredients in a small bowl, season to taste with salt and pepper.
