  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the salmon, eggs, parsley, onion, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon of basil, and red pepper flakes. Form into 6 firmly packed patties, about 1/2 inch thick.

In order to reduce the fat in this recipe, I baked the burgers at 325 degrees F. for 10 minutes, then turned them and baked them for another 10.

Just ok, wouldn't make again. Make sure your can of salmon says boneless & skinless... I got a can full of bones & spent awhile picking them out. This would prob be better with fresh salmon.

I've tried a few salmon burger recipes and will stick with this one...the patty actually sticks together and the flavor is good--especially with the lemon/basil mayo. Will make this again.

I loved the flavor and how easy this recipe is to make. I used the salmon that comes in the foil pouch, and they turned out just great. This is a very tasty, healthy, and easy recipe.

Honestly, I hate salmon but my parents gave me some cans of it so I was looking up recipes to try and found this one. Not only does my mother love it, but so do I. I like my mother's salmon pa...

I actually really enjoyed this recipe. I made 4 patties rather than 6 and served them on buns with a nice salad. A great dinner. Will definitely make them again.
