This tasty and easy Salmon Burger recipe is not to be missed! Ditch the bun and serve it with mouthwatering Avocado Salsa.
When my husband tried these Salmon Burgers with Avocado Salsa for the first time he said “Oh, wow!” And that’s the perfect way to describe this recipe. Flavorful, healthy and fresh, these cute little burgers are a MUST TRY this summer.
These Salmon Burgers can be cooked on the stove, using a non-stick grill skillet or on the outdoor grill for that extra smoky flavor. I usually cook these inside because I live in an apartment building and making BBQ on the balcony is prohibited. Oh well… 🙂
All the ingredients are simple and other than the fish, you probably already have the rest of ingredients on hand. Here is the list:
- salmon filet (skin removed)
- 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp mustard
- salt, pepper
- olive oil for greasing the pan or grill
I always prefer to use fresh breadcrumbs over Panko. I believe they add much better texture and flavor. To make a cup of fresh breadcrumbs, just place 4 slices of slightly stale (or frozen!) bread in a food processor and process until breadcrumbs form. Italian or regular white bread will work the best for this recipe.
Lastly, I suggest you don’t skip the Avocado Salsa. It is SO TASTY and it pairs very well with these Salmon Burgers. Even if you choose to serve these burgers on a bun, serve the salsa on the side or smash it slightly with a fork and spread it on the bun as well. Let me know how you enjoyed these tasty Salmon Burgers, friends!
