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.

"This salmon was a hit! Both my 14 year old and my 4 year old girls loved this recipe. I added a splash of soy sauce to the blend and it went really well with it. I did not serve it with the green goddess sauce but made my own cilantro...

Restaurant quality. I did NOT deviate from the recipe and I prepared the Green Goddess Sauce. Wonderful and so fresh tasting!


I am not a salmon eater, though whilst looking for a healthy dinner, I came upon this recipe and thought why not!. I first made the green goddess sauce (which I tried out on my tuna salad lunch for work, It tasted lovely and made a somewhat boring salad into a very refreshing one). Yesterday I decided to go for it and try the salmon burgers. These were divine, not hard to make though a bit time consuming but hey it was a Saturday so have lots of time. My husband (a fly fisher but not a fish eater) tried these and loved them and so did my 13 year old daughter who had earlier turned her nose up at the thought. Will be making these again


Can I just say that skinning a salmon fillet, rinsing and chopping anchovies, and making a salmon burger withough any kind of binding agent made me nervous? If it hadn't been Spring Break (I'm a teacher,) I never would have attempted this recipe. Thank goodness for Spring Break! This is a recipe for tender salmon with a crispy coating and a savory, luxurious Green Goddess sauce that I will be putting on just about anything I can imagine for the next 30 years.

Right on point

Incredible recipe and a good change of pace from the same 'ol - same 'ol marinated salmon on the grill. My 17 yr. old son who doesn't particularly like salmon went back for seconds. High marks from my husband, as well. I highly recommend the Green Goddess Sauce. The burger on a hearty bun calls out for a tasteful sauce. Will keep this recipe in my 'make regularly' file!

Fairly easy and very tasty

Sorry, not really a review. I want to try this out, but nobody said anything about the bones! The last salmon I had was grilled, and the bones were a nuisance. If you are chopping up this salmon, how do you get rid of the bones?.
