Salmon Burgers are fantastic for you and a great way to get your Omega 3s in! Omega 3s can assist with increasing brain health, reducing internal inflammation, improving heart health, and more. I use canned salmon for simplicity (and it’s cheap). By baking these burgers, you cut down on the calories. I like to eat my salmon burgers with a quick tomato salad: sliced tomato, sliced red onion, salt, pepper, and red wine vinegar tossed together. Fast & Easy & Delicious!
Recipe type: Lunch, Dinner, Burgers
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 2 6 ½ ounce cans of Salmon, drained well
  • 1 Tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup Panko bread crumbs (or you can make your own using 1 slice whole wheat bread, toasted, and coarsely chopped in a food processor)
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 Sandwich Thins
  • Lettuce, tomato, red onion for toppings of burger (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Chop parsley and shallot. Combine diced shallot, parsley, and the remaining ingredients (minus sandwich thins) into a large bowl and mix with hands to ensure everything to be evenly incorporated.
  3. Mold mixture into 4 patties, approximately 3 inches wide and ¾ inch thick.
  4. Cover a baking sheet with tinfoil and spray with a cooking spray. (This helps with easy clean-up). Place uncooked burgers onto the baking sheet. Bake in oven for 20 minutes, flipping after 15 minutes. To make sure burgers are done, check middle of each burger with a fork for no bright pink in the middle. Cook an additional 5 minutes if middle is still bright pink, continuing to do so until done. Serve on a toasted sandwich thin (I like my bread toasted) with whatever burger toppings you’d like. Because the salmon has already been seasoned so well, you may not need a condiment on your bun. Yes: they are that delicious.
  5. I also eat mine with a tomato salad.

    Do you think that a barbequed salmon burger would have less fat but still be scrumptious?
    I might try it. Thanks.

      The fat in the salmon is super heart-healthy and contains Omega-3 fats (great for brain health). Don’t worry about the salmon having some fat. Baking & grilling salmon are very similar so you will have the same amount of fat from the salmon in each cooking method. If you cook salmon in a pan and add extra oil, then you get extra fat added to the fish. BBQ sounds great! When am I coming over to enjoy it with you?
