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 affordable). Baking the burgers makes them healthier because the salmon is already full of natural, heart-healthy fat. 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
Ingredients
  • 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)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 Brioche buns or hamburger bun of choice
  • Lettuce, tomato, red onion for toppings of burger (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Chop parsley and shallot. Combine salmon, diced shallot, parsley, egg, panko, lemon juice, yogurt, dill, lemon pepper, salt, and pepper into a large bowl and mix.
  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 bun (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. I also eat mine with a tomato salad.
