Baked Salmon Burgers

Are you tired of the usual burger? Baked salmon burgers are a lighter, healthier alternative.

They are very simple and quick to make: just put all the ingredients in a food processor, pulse, shape the patties and pop them in the oven. In  25 minutes your dinner is ready!

I served them up with homemade mini burger buns, tartare sauce and kale. You can even serve these burgers with a simple salad, or wrapped in lettuce.

I added an egg white and breadcrumbs into the ground salmon to keep the patties moist and flavorful. The breadcrumbs really help to keep the patties tender and hold their shape perfectly without falling apart.

To make the mini patties all the same size, I used an ice cream scoop and a round cookie cutter the same size as the burger buns. I placed the cookie cutter on the baking tray, and pressed 1 scoop of the salmon mixture into it.

With this ingredients you can make 3 regular size burgers or 8 mini burgers. Make a larger batch and freeze some for a quick mid-week dinner!

Baked salmon burgers are tasty, very filling and pleasing for the whole family.
