Salmon Burger

Share On:

To finish this burger series we bring you our version of a Salmon Burger. Salmon has earned its research reputation as a health-supportive food based largely on its unusually high omega-3 fatty acid content.

Intake of fish rich in omega-3 fat (including salmon) is associated with decreased risk of numerous cardiovascular problems, including: heart attack, stroke, heart arrhythmia, high blood pressure, and high triglycerides in the blood. Should I say more?

In a single 100g piece of salmon you’ll find:

  • Vitamin B-12 (236% of the daily recommended value – DRV)
  • Vitamin D (127% of the DRV)
  • Vitamin B-3 (56.3% of the DRV)
  • Omega-3 (55.0% of the DRV)
  • Vitamin B-6 (37.6% of the DRV)

In Our Fresh Kitchen our main goal is to support healthy, uncomplicated food that actually tastes good. We also believe in choosing the best food while being good to the nature. We recommend using wild salmon for this recipe.

Don’t miss the next post, we will have a recipe to make your own buns. We love to make them in slider size and invite friends over for make-your-own-burger day.

Making Salmon Burgers

Clean the salmon (remove the skin if it came with it) and dice it in small squares. Marinate the salmon in olive oil, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. You can do this the night before for better taste. We share the how-to process in our Honey Salmon recipe.

Dice the red & yellow pepper in small pieces. Add the salmon, peppers and capers in a big bowl and mix together carefully. Use a fork to press the capers and salmon to the edges of the bowl to get some “flakes”. They don’t have to be perfect flakes.

Incorporate the egg yolk & white carefully. Mix again. You should have a thicker mix now.
Add flour slowly until you get the desired texture. You’re looking for a paste that can be malleable with the hands.

Shape your patties on a parchment paper and toss breadcrumbs on it.
Preheat a frying pan to medium heat. Add coconut oil or olive oil, and fry the patties for several minutes on each side until they’re golden brown and cooked through.

Assemble your burger or slider and dig in!
