Servings: 4
Recently I was a guest at a golf club where the chef cooked salmon burgers, served as you would meat burgers between toasted hamburger buns or an English muffin with lettuce, tomato, thinly sliced Vidalia onions, and red relish (which is similar to sweet red pepper relish). They were a delicious, light, and healthy alternative to a traditional burger.


  • 2 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions (white and green parts)
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 lb skinless wild salmon fillets, bones removed, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbs chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  • Heat 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the scallions and cook for 2 minutes, or until translucent. Increase the heat to medium-high. Add the lemon juice and cook for 4 minutes, or until almost all the liquid evaporates. Transfer to a bowl to cool.
  • Place the raw salmon in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground. Add to the scallions. Mix in the egg, dill, and pepper. Form into 4 equal patties.
  • Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon (15 ml) oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the patties for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve.
