First time trying salmon burgers using whole salmon vs canned. I chose to skin it and debone it, which was a little time consuming but no big deal. The mixture held together nicely and didn't crumble when I put it in the pan. The flavor was fantastic! My husband raved about them and definitely wants them again! They are very tasty and a nice change from salmon fillets. Read More

I wouldn't make this recipe again. The burgers fell apart as I was cooking them (I should have used eggs instead of oil) and they tasted very acidic. The juice from one lemon is too much for this recipe and it needed more bread crumbs than what the recipe called for. Next time I will stick to my salmon burger recipe but I will add a couple of teaspoons of lemon juice to spice it up. Read More

My kids loved these burgers! They didn't leave a crumb behind! I wasn't exactly sure how many pounds of salmon I had so I used 2 eggs to be safe and they stayed together perfectly. We topped them with melted cheese and tomatoes on a whole wheat bun fantastic meal and a nice change from the ordinary. Read More

My husband and daughter both really liked these. They were easy to put together and to cook. I served them on thin whole wheat buns with lettuce tomato and mayonnaise. Sides of coleslaw and red potato fries made a nice accompaniment. These didn't need any egg to bind them as salmonis pretty sticky. Thanks! Read More

Thanks for posting a recipe with fresh salmon. My husband loves canned salmon and I've tried a similar recipe but I loved this one. Used an onion because I didn't have scallions and added some additional seasonings plus a bunch of fresh herbs. Sautéed in some olive oil and I thought it was great. Hubby wants canned salmon but I'll use this more often and buy the canned salmon for him. Great recipe. So easy and light. Read More

I love love LOVE tuna burgers so I thought..... why not! Preparing the fish was a little yucky; which is to be expected. ( It smelled great when it was cooking! ) I did set the patties in the fridge a few min. To firm up which helps a lot....anywho once everything was all ready I took one bite and spit it out! It was awful. It tasted like fishy nasty in my mouth. If you're thinking I don't understand the "star system" you're wrong. My family seriously like it. My 13 year old daughter even ate mine AFTER eating her own. They all just ate it up! So I would recommend it maybe I am the only one that hates it!! Read More

Nice egg free version (no mayo) for making salmon burgers/patties and easy to convert to gluten free by using GF bread crumbs. I only had bottled lemon juice on hand and reduced to half as the mixture smelled a little too lemony at that point. They were perfect but found we had to add more bread crumbs to try binding the mixture (used fresh salmon). Recipe needs some sort of binder to hold the patties together better. Ours fell apart a little in the pan but not too bad. Used Jan's Old Bay Seasoning Substitute (from this website) which worked great flavor wise in this recipe. Topped the burgers with McDonald's Tartar Sauce Copycat also from this website. Overall a very tasty recipe and will make it again with some minor tweaks. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Read More

Neither my husband nor myself liked it. Using fresh salmon as opposed to canned made it "chewy". Read More

Made this last night, on hamburger buns smeared with ranch dressing and iceberg lettuce, was a hit!! Didn’t have any lemon juice substituted 2T tangerine vinegarette. Might recommend a little more liquid, was difficult keeping the patty’s together. Read More
