Like I promised last week on Insta, today I’m going to share my Salmon Burger recipe with you!

It’s surprisingly super easy, and amazingly delicious!  I was so proud of myself when I was done.  This recipe was actually inspired by my most recent “Durham Costco trip” with my Mom when I was home the other week.  I love cooking salmon as a dish {Alaskan salmon only!}, with a side of veggies and maybe some cauliflower rice.  However, I’ve never really experimented with canned salmon.  Canned tuna?  Yes.  Canned salmon?  No.  But could they really be much different?  While we were at Costco, I stumbled upon a super pack of canned salmon {of course, it’s Costco}.  Jumping at any chance to be creative, I decided to get it and go from there.

It’s that “buy now ask questions later” mentality that can get me in trouble at the grocery store…or the mall…or when impulsively buying heels.  Which, I would like to point out I haven’t done in a long time.  No worries here, Mom and Dad.

So, I have a couple of “canned salmon uses” on the docket, that I will share in due time.  For now, let’s go over the Salmon Burger!

Note:  I don’t see why this recipe couldn’t be used with raw/smoked salmon, as long as you have 16 oz. worth.

Ingredients: {makes 2 salmon burgers}

1 16oz can of salmon
1 egg
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp of dill
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
1/2 tsp of parsley {can be dried or fresh}
2 Tbsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice
A pinch each of salt and black pepper
Cooking oil of choice, here I used olive oil spray on my grill pan

Directions:

1.  Drain the can of salmon, and empty the meaty contents into a mixing bowl.  Heat skillet or grill pan over medium heat with oil.

2.  Add the remaining ingredients into the same bowl and mix well {hands can be used here}.

3.  Once the ingredients are mixed well, divide evenly and shape into two patties.  Place on heated pan.

4.  Cook on each side until cooked through to your preference.  With my grill pan I ended up flipping a few times since this was my first try, but I spent about 5-7 minutes on each side.  Keep and eye on them though!

5.  Once they’re cooked, decorate it however you like!  Add it to a bun with some lettuce and tomato, or garnish it with some arugala like I did here!

I love arugala, especially with fish.  It’s such a “peppery” little addition.  With this arugala I added a Tbsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice {so, pretty much the juice from a slice of lemon} some crushed black pepper, and a drop of olive oil.  Then I mixed it together and used it as the bed for my burger.

NIGHT NIGHT SALMON BURGER…welcome to ma belly.

Next time you have a burger craving, give this recipe a try {with the canned salmon, it really doesn’t even taste “fishy”, if that’s your main concern}.  It’s a great substitution for any greasy, beefy burger!

Have you guys ever made salmon burgers before?  What do you like to top your burgers with?
