  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • Chef notes

    Salmon burgers are a fresh and flavorful alternative to the traditional beef patty. They have the same juicy qualities that regular burgers do, while adding tremendous health qualities.

    Technique tip: Make sure the grill is very hot (350°F-450°F). Lightly brush grill or food item with oil before placing on the grill to avoid sticking.

    Swap option: Instead of salmon, substitute tuna, crab or chopped shrimp.

    Preparation

    1.

    Preheat grill to high heat and brush grates with oil.

    2.

    In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix to evenly combine. Form 4 patties, about 6 ounces each.

    3.

    Place the patties on the grill and let cook for 3 minutes before attempting to turn. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes for medium-well doneness (cook longer if desired).

    4.

    Serve on toasted buns with some tartar sauce, lettuce and tomato.
