Description

This is a recipe I stole from my sister, which has become a staple in my house–a great alternative to the typical ground up salmon burgers, and the tangy yogurt/dill sauce is the perfect balance for the strong flavored fish.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Skinless Salmon Fillet, Finely Diced (use A Sharp Knife So You Don’t Crush The Pieces)
  • 1 Tablespoon Prepared White Horseradish
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 whole Large Egg, Lightly Beaten
  • 3 whole Scallions, Thinly Sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Plain Dried Breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ⅛ teaspoons Pepper
  • ½ cups Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Dill
  • 4 whole Buns, Split And Toasted
  • 4 leaves Lettuce (optional, For Serving)

Preparation

Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. In a medium bowl, combine salmon, horseradish, lemon juice, egg, scallions, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper; mix gently.

Form salmon mixture into four 3 1/2-by-1 inch patties; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil, without turning, until browned on top and opaque throughout, 6-7 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine yogurt and dill in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Serve burgers on buns with yogurt-dill sauce and lettuce.

@Pam P – I’ve never had canned salmon at all! Is it like canned tuna? One of the elements I love about these burgers is the actual small pieces of fresh salmon, instead of it ground up, making it almost buttery. But I’d be curious to know how it is with the canned version. Make it and report back!

Very easy and delicious. It has become one of our “go-to” recipes. I usually add a heaping tablespoon of horseradish just because we like the stronger flavor.

I made these today, substituting brook trout for the salmon, and frying them instead of broiling. Was yummie! Thanks for sharing.
