By all means put these Salmon Burgers between two sides of a burger bun, but they are also really tasty served as salmon patties.

I served them with Fried Rice and Asian Greens and the one burger that was left over ended up in a burger bun the next day.

I shallow fried them in a frying pan, but the hot plate of a BBQ would work equally well.

This recipe will make around 8 burgers and take around ten minutes to prepare.

Salmon Burgers

Here goes:

Salmon Burgers – Ingredients

  • Approx 400 g / 14 oz tin of pink or red salmon
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 spring onions, chopped small
  • 1 egg
  • 1 table spoon soy sauce
  • 1 table spoon grated ginger (fresh or from a jar)
  • Oil for shallow frying

Salmon Burgers – Method

  1. Drain most of the juice from the salmon, but reserve the juice for later in case the mix is too dry
  2. Put the salmon into a bowl and mash with a fork
  3. Add the breadcrumbs and spring onions and mix some more
  4. Crack the egg into a separate bowl and mix together with the soy sauce and grated ginger
  5. Add the egg mix to the salmon mix and stir to combine
  6. Using your hands (I use disposable gloves) mold the mix into burger shapes (add a little of the reserved juice if the mix is too dry)
  7. Heat oil in a large frying pan and cook burgers over moderate heat until nicely browned on both sides
  8. Serve immediately
  9. Can also be served cold

Variations and Handy Hints

  • If the mixture is too dry, add some of the reserved salmon juice
  • If the mixture is too wet, add more breadcrumbs
  • For a hot variation add some chili
  • Sweet Chili Sauce is a nice accompaniment
  • You can use fresh salmon if you wish

    They sound so yummy! We have a chickpea burger patty recipe that our boys love – will have to give this one a go 🙂 I like the idea of serving it with rice or having as a burger.

    Salmon Burgers are my all time favorite hadn’t thought of serving them with fried rice though sounds nice.
    As I am the only one that eats them I get the smaller can of salmon when making mine, I will try your delicious sounding recipe
