Salmon Burgers 7

First of all, salmon is a great source of vitamins and essential minerals. In addition, salmon is also a ‘good’ source of cholesterol (Omega 3-fatty acids). Salmon is also a good protein source, easy to digest and helps in the beneficial bacteria in the colon. Furthermore, salmon can improve skin texture, add some sparkle to your eyes, skin, hair, and nails.

Salmon steaks seasoned with Cajun seasoning are fantastic, however, I enjoy mine with a simple hint of Himalayan Pink Crystal Sea Salt. 

I love this recipe, not only because it is delicious, but because it’s one of my go-to recipes when I’ve forgotten to thaw out meat for dinner. These salmon burgers are quick and easy to make. Plus, I always double the recipe because they make great leftovers. I personally like to use Natural Pink Salmon.

It only takes a few minutes to mix up the ingredients and a few minutes to fry them. The recipe says to ‘de-bone’ the salmon but I never do. Once the burgers are cooked, I can’t even tell the little bones are in there.

Some people like ketchup with their salmon burgers, but I like mine plain. Since I am trying to stay on a low-carb diet I eat my burger without bread. However, you certainly can enjoy them with a bun and topped with onions, lettuce, and/or tartar sauce or whatever condiments you like.

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoon butter


  1. Combine all ingredients together and shape into patties.
  2. Brown in skillet in a little extra virgin olive oil; about 6 minutes on each side.
  3. Serve plain or on buns with lettuce. (I always double the recipe because these are wonder as leftovers!)

Just mix all of the ingredients and fry the patties in just a little olive oil. It only takes a few minutes on each side.  I like mine a little on the crispy side so I fry my until they are nice and golden brown. 

If you have made homemade croutons the extra bread crust makes great bread crumbs that could be used for these salmon burgers. 

Here’s to eating healthy!

    Is the butter for browning or adding to the patty?

      Hi Lacy, The butter is incorporated into the salmon burgers, although you could also use olive oil in place of the butter. I also use a little olive oil for frying the patties. Enjoy! Linda
