Fresh Salmon Burgers with Caper Mayo

Total Time:






Skill Level:



  • Burgers:
  • 1 lb. skinless salmon or steelhead trout
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup soft breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley or cilantro
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. grainy mustard
  • salt and pepper
  • canola or olive oil, for cooking
  • Caper Mayo:
  • 1/3 cup real mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp. capers, drained and chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Additional Ingredients:
  • Soft buns
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • thinly sliced cucumber

How to Make It

Roughly chop the salmon or trout, and combine it in a bowl with the remaining ingredients. Set a heavy skillet over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of oil. Shape the mixture into four patties and place them gently into the pan; cook until deep golden on one side, then flip and cook on the other side—they should cook through and be crusty and golden in 5-7 minutes.

To make the caper mayo, stir together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, capers and pepper. Spread on the buns and top with salmon patties, tomato, lettuce and thinly sliced cucumber - and a little more caper mayo. Serve immediately.
