These Fresh and Easy Salmon Burgers are easy to make, healthy and a great change up from a regular burger!
Notice none of my burgers are beef? It isn’t because I don’t enjoy a beef burger…I just don’t cook them well. I save that task for the uppidity Seattle tavern restaurants that we love!
Another thing I am not a fan of, is using a bunch of fancy equipment. Fancy equipment equals tons of clean up. I am more into eating than cleaning. My trusty knife and I do a quick job of mincing up the salmon in record time! I simply removed the skin and got to chopping. All I had to wash was my knife (I love my knife)…
These Salmon Burgers are so easy you will wonder where they have been all your life!
There isn’t much too these…a bit of egg, bread crumbs, red pepper – the usual suspects but they were divine! I will make them again and again. Next time I’ll add a bit of jalapeño or Anaheim peppers to kick it up a notch. But the simplicity of this recipe makes it noteworthy.
Note: You can sub almond meal for the Panko to make this GF, Paleo and Whole30 compliant.
And I love my Grill Pan!
