The first time I went to Alaska – about 1 1/2 years ago – my future sister in law made the BEST salmon burgers I had ever had. Of course, it was with Alaska salmon! I asked her about them, and she said there really wasn’t anything special about them. So, I never did find out what was in them! All I remember is that she prepared them in the food processor. And to this day, I can’t remember anything else about them!
I know these salmon burgers aren’t as good as hers, but I think they are pretty good! I decided to combine two of my favorite flavors – lemon and dill!
Lemon Dill Salmon Burgers
Print this recipe!
Makes 4 burgers
1 lb salmon, or 1 can 14 oz can Alaskan salmon, drained
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
1 lemon, juice and zest
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Preheat a medium skillet over medium heat.
Mix all ingredients together. Form into 4 patties.
Or, in my case, 4 patties and 1 mini patty for taste testing purposes!
Cook 3-4 minutes, and then flip. Cook 3-4 minutes on the other side.
Honestly, I don’t miss the bun. I just served them on a bed of spinach. However, if you would like, you can stick them on a bun.
Happy March 1!
