My patties didn't hold together too well during the cooking process (possibly because I didn't chop the salmon finely enough?) but this in no way detracted from the dinner, because the salmon tasted delicious atop a bed of greens tossed in balsamic vinaigrette. I added a squeeze of lime to the salmon and also served it with the recommended Green Goddess Sauce (which I highly suggest, as it really added to the meal). These salmon burgers were very meaty and hearty. I prefer these nearly pure-meat salmon 'burgers' to the canned salmon/bread crumb-type cakes I have made in the past, and so does my husband.

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.

Very light and delicious meal, even my picky brother ate it and he hates fish.
These salmon burgers tasted amazing! They were absolutely bursting with flavor. Served them with steamed broccoli and the chile-garlic sweet potatoes, also from Eatingwell.
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 lime crema sauce, a sauce I use often with fish. Delicious! I never thought of using fresh salmon in a burger, and I will never go back to icky dry canned salmon for salmon patties again! I would also feel fine serving this to guests, thanks Eating Well!
This sounds great to me. I don't cook much but this is up my ally. Just a thought: This could be a great finger food if made into bite size balls. A new and different item at parties.
