These salmon burgers are not only delicious but also an extremely heart-healthy dish. Feel free to substitute the fresh salmon for canned salmon instead.


  • 1 pound fresh salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3/4 cup panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs)
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 4 hamburger rolls
  • Lettuce to garnish


  1. Place the salmon into a food processor, pulse 8 times to chop, and then transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Add the panko, green onions, cilantro, ginger, garlic, eggs, soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to the bowl and stir the mixture to combine.
  3. Form the mixture into 4 patties, cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  4. In the meantime, place the mayonnaise and the 2 teaspoons of lemon juice into a small bowl and mix until thoroughly blended.
  5. Place a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and add the oil. One the oil begins to shimmer, add the salmon patties and cook for 4 minutes on each side.
  6. Slather some of the lemon and mayonnaise mixture onto each roll and then add a salmon burger. Top with a piece of lettuce and serve immediately.
