In this easy salmon burger recipe, ditch the bun and serve the burger over a bed of salad greens topped with a creamy green goddess dressing. The secret to this perfect salmon burger? Handling the fish delicately, seasoning lightly and not overcooking the salmon.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. With a large chef’s knife, chop salmon using quick, even, straight-up-and-down motions (do not rock the knife or the fish will turn mushy) until you have a mass of roughly 1/4-inch pieces. Transfer to a large bowl; gently stir in onion (or scallion), cilantro, ginger, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper (do not overmix). Divide the mixture into 4 patties, about 1 inch thick. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes (or up to 2 hours).
  2. Mix mayonnaise, sour cream, anchovy, chives, parsley, capers, lemon zest, lemon juice, pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the burgers and cook until browned on both sides and just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes total. Serve the burgers with the sauce.
