Healthy Salmon Burgers, fast and easy made with canned salmon, cracker crumbs, chopped celery and onions. Healthy becomes delicious, especially when served with a little Greek Yogurt Dill Sauce.
I don’t know if it is as hot where you are as it is here. I keep telling myself, “ok you can do this, only 4 more months to go.” I have no idea why I so dislike the heat now, I used to love it.
Maybe because of all that snow and those below zero temperatures, I, like 36,000,000 other Canadians couldn’t wait for the heat.
So when it is so hot or not so hot, but you want something fast and easy and sometimes a switch from those regular boring hamburgers. These Healthy Salmon Burgers with this delicious Greek yogurt dill sauce could be the perfect choice.
To tell the truth the Italian can’t decide which he likes better Salmon burgers or Tuna Burgers, and he adored the Greek yogurt dill sauce.
I made these again for lunch today and when he bit into the Salmon Burger and said “Ottimo”!
How to Make Salmon Burgers
- In a medium bowl add 2 eggs and beat slightly.
- Clean and flake the salmon, then add to the bowl.
- Mix in a little less than one cup of cracker crumbs. I love using cracker crumbs rather than bread crumbs, I like the taste and that way there is no need for salt.
- Add the chopped celery and onion, mix it all together, and form into 4 – 6 patties.
- Fry in a medium pan with a little olive oil until browned. So Good!
Healthy Salmon Burgers
This was my Mom’s recipe which she always used canned salmon for she also made an amazing Salmon Spread that we love. But finding canned salmon can be a little tricky here in Italy.
It took me 3 stores to find it this time. I hope I remember what store it was next time I need it! Funny how it is I can find Oreos easier than salmon!
I don’t know who loves these salmon burgers more my family or George our cat? After I have cleaned and flaked the salmon, George gets the left-overs.
And boy does he guard his plate from the dogs. Funny how it is, those two dogs, Snoopy and Leone are deathly afraid of George. I laugh just thinking of those surprise attacks.
