Ingredients

  • 1 kg fresh salmon , skinless
  • 1/2 cup green onion , chopped
  • 1/4 cup parsley , chopped
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg , beaten

  • 1 tbsp capers , chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill , chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  • Cut salmon into 1-in. slices and place in freezer for 10 min to make it easier to chop. Finely chop salmon and combine
    with onion, parsley, mayonnaise, salt and egg. Stir in enough bread crumbs to make into patties. Form into 6 to 8 burgers, depending on bun size.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large non-stick pan over medium high. Working in batches, fry burgers for 8 to 10 min, turning and adding more oil to pan as needed, until golden brown on both sides and just cooked through.
  • Stir ingredients together for Lemon and Dill Mayo and serve with salmon burgers on soft buns with lettuce, if desired.
