This past month has been filled with so many changes and news as well as ups and downs. I hope you are all handling things OK. To keep things simple at home, these salmon burgers are a really quick meal to toss together. This recipe uses canned salmon (yay for pantry-safe foods) or leftover salmon, and both result in a delicious and satisfying salmon burger.

For serving, you can put the burger on a bun or serve on a bed of your favorite greens – the choice is yours and both options are equally delish!Salmon Burgers -

Salmon Burgers


  • 12–14 oz cooked or canned salmon
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup gluten free breadcrumbs (or regular breadcrumbs)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (reduce to ¼ teaspoon or to taste if using canned salmon)
  • ¼ cup chives
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon garlic infused olive oil (or regular olive oil)


Flake the salmon. If using canned salmon, remove any bones or skin. In a large bowl, combine salmon, eggs, breadcrumbs, salt, chives and lemon. Form into 4 patties.

Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet. Cook the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side or until browned and slightly crisp.

Serve on top of a delicious bed of greens or your favorite bun!
