Salmon Burgers

I've never been a fan of salmon. It probably has something to do with the smell and the fact that it's a fish! gasp! but the kids love salmon and it's a superfood (packed with omega 3 fish oils). Was relieved to find this recipe online. I've made it a couple of times and it always comes out great.



Ingredients: (Makes 4 burger patties)

800gm salmon fillet
300 ml breadcrumbs
4 large shallots, finely chopped
250 ml cooked bacon, finely chopped
180ml flat leaf parsley
30ml honey or maple syrup (can be skipped)
1/2 tsp paprika
pepper to taste
zest of 1 lemon
4 burger buns

Method:
Pulse salmon in food processor until ground. Stir in shallots, parsley, bacon, pepper, paprika, lemon zest and honey.

Add in breadcrumbs gradually while mixing until you reach desired consistency.

Form mixture into 1 inch patties and refrigerate until ready to grill.

Preheat grill / over to 190 degrees. Grill each side for approx 6 minutes.

Serve with salad. Thai chili sauce or dill mayo.

Hi, I am just surfing blogs this morning, and came upon "cooking" ones. Your recipes are making me ready for lunch and it is only 8:16am, here in Washington State. If you are ever in the Stanwood/Camano Island area, please let me know - you would be welcome in our kitchen any day of the week!

My blog is pretty much dedicated to books and movies, as I work for the third largest library system in Washington state, my main area of work is doing preschool storytimes and working with children, but outside of work my husband and I enjoy movies.

See ya

The flavors really blend well together. I used a 1 lb salmon fillet rather than the canned variety. Just gave it a couple pulses with the food processor.

We eat these at least once a week - great source of protein and good oils. I like to top it with homemade pickled onions!:) YUM!

I omitted the onions, but they still turned out great. The sauce goes very well with the burgers, it's nice and lemony.
