I am not a big fish eater, but my family is - so I had to find a way of serving fish that we all liked. These salmon burgers were the perfect solution for us! Serve on hamburger buns with preferred garnish (lettuce, tomato, onion, etc.)

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds salmon, finely diced

  • 1 small yellow onion, finely diced

  • ¾ cup panko bread crumbs

  • 1 green bell pepper, finely diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • ½ teaspoon lemon pepper

Directions

  1. Combine salmon, onion, bread crumbs, green bell pepper, 3 cloves garlic, egg, soy sauce, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and salt in a large bowl; mix until evenly blended. Shape salmon mixture into eight patties.

  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook salmon patties until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes per side.

  3. Whisk mayonnaise, 2 cloves garlic, basil, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and lemon pepper in a bowl until well mixed. Serve mayonnaise mixture with salmon patties.

Cook's Note:

Since there are only 3 of us - I usually make these and freeze half of the mixture to thaw and serve later. I've also used tartar sauce instead of mayo. If you would prefer to use a grill - I would recommend placing a sheet of aluminum foil over the grate and spraying with cooking spray so the fish doesn't stick and the patties don't fall apart.
