Recipe: Appetizing Salmon Burgers

Salmon Burgers. These salmon burgers had a really good flavor and they were quick, easy and inexpensive to make. I added a little more dijon and an extra egg to bump up the flavor and help them stick together a little more. In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients.

Salmon Burgers Carefully use your fingers to press it out to the shape of a burger. Many salmon burger recipes use canned salmon, but since the salmon is the star of this dish, we found that it was well worth the additional modest expense and effort required to make our burgers with fresh salmon. Burgers made with canned salmon were lackluster (to say the least) and mushy, while those made with fresh salmon were moist and full. You can have Salmon Burgers using 15 ingredients and 13 steps.
