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 3 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, although he adored the Greek yogurt dill sauce.
I used canned salmon because that is what I always use when I make these burgers. Strange thing is I used to find canned salmon everywhere. 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. Dogs are such wimps!
Healthy Salmon Burgers
So where was I? Right, these yummy healthy salmon burgers, made with eggs and cracker crumbs. Personally I am using cracker crumbs now instead of bread crumbs.
No need to add salt! Mix it all together and 10 minutes before you are ready to eat, cook them in the frying pan. Makes life so much easier. And you could make your cat happier too! Buon Appetito!
