BBQ Salmon Burgers

March 01, 2012

I really wish you were at my house tonight, because I’ve never seen my husband so excited!  Marc Loved these!!!  It was unbelievable, he was going on and on, like ” You can make these every week”,
“I can’t believe how good these are!).  Kinda funny since when he phoned me while I was shopping at Whole Foods he was less than enthused with my dinner menu.  Make these for your family they are healthy and delicious!!!

BBQ Salmon Burgers
  • 1 pound fresh, raw salmon (skinless or skin removed), chopped. Your fish department will do this for you.
  • ⅓ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon minced onion
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 4 Challah rolls
  1. Add salmon to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until it’s somewhat ground.
  2. Remove and add salmon to a bowl with remaining ingredients (except for buns!) and mix with a spoon until just combined. Form into 4 equally-sized burgers. Heat a skillet (or grill) over medium-high heat and cook burgers on each side until golden – about 3-4 minutes per side.
  3. Serve with additional BBQ sauce, lettuce and red onion for topping.
  4. I made mine inside tonight on a grill pan set on medium high heat. I had to turn the heat down after I turned them so they would not get to charred. They came out PERFECT!!!
