How To Make Guiltless Salmon Burger

Compared to traditional beef, this salmon burger is lower in fat. It’s still tasty though, with some Dijon, soy sauce, chives, mayo, and sesame oil.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 20 minutes



  • 1lbwild salmon fillet,skinless
  • 1tbspdijon mustard
  • 1tbspmayonnaise,reduced-fat
  • 1tbspfresh chives,chopped

  • ¼tspsalt
  • tspfreshly ground pepper

  • 2tsppeanut oil
  • 4wholewheat buns
  • 4slicetomato

  1. Remove and discard any bones from salmon, then cut into 1-inch pieces.

  2. In a food processor, pulse salmon just until finely chopped (do not overprocess). Transfer salmon to a medium bowl.

  3. Add mustard, mayonnaise, chives, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper; stir to combine. Form mixture into four 3½-inch patties.

  4. Generously sprinkle one side of each patty with sesame seeds.

  5. Brush peanut oil over the bottom of a large nonstick skillet to coat evenly. Place skillet over medium-high heat.

  6. Place burgers, seed side down, in skillet; cook until sesame seeds brown lightly, 2 to 3 minutes, reducing heat slightly if necessary. With a spatula, gently turn burgers over and cook just until opaque in the center.

  7. Transfer salmon burgers to buns, and top with tomato slices and greens.
