Salmon Burgers

Salmon is a healthy source of protein and Omega-3s, but it can be expensive. Cooked from canned fish, this recipe is more affordable, easy, and filling.

Print Recipe


  • 1 14.75-ounce can salmon, drained
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped (or half that amount dried dill)
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Baby spinach, for serving (optional)


  1. Add all the ingredients from salmon to the egg to a bowl. Season lightly with salt and pepper and mix.
  2. Divide mixture into five patties.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the salmon burgers until golden and crispy, about three minutes per side.
  4. Drain patties, if needed, and top with baby spinach, if using.
  5. Enjoy!
