Homemade Salmon Burger


Hey guys! I’m sorry for being absent-tee for so long and I have buckets of excuses, which have a lot to do with my Grandma’s passing …however, I’m finally back. Before I go on, I want to say how much your comments on my last post just blessed me so much! You all are so kind and your thoughts, prayers, and sweet words really did mean a lot to me. I have the best readers! Thank you.To make up for my non-appearance I wanted to share one of my new favourites. I love my tuna burger recipe and make it all the time…but it’s good to switch things up. Salmon has a ton of great things to offer nutrition wise.

It’s full of the necessary B12, niacin, selenium, and is an excellent source of B6 and magnesium. Canned salmon also contains large amounts of calcium (because of the bones of the fish).

I love serving this over a big veggie salad and then drizzling some homemade dressing over it. It’s also great served with whole wheat buns as a burger. Serves 2.

Homemade Salmon Burgers

  1. 1 (218g) can salmon
  2. ¼ tsp. pink salt
  3. ¼ cup egg whites (or 2 egg whites)
  4. 2 tsp. organic flax seed, ground
  5. Montreal chicken spice, optional (to taste)

Mix all of the above ingredients in a bowl. With your hands, shape into two burgers. Fry in a pan spritzed with olive oil until both sides are browned.

If you’re not a fan of salmon, maybe you want to try the tuna burger?

As many of you know, I write recipes for FabFoods and one of my most recent recipes is my raw Catalina Dressing. I like having this dressing drizzled over a huge veggie salad loaded with cucumbers, peppers, snap peas, mushrooms, and diced avocado. You might just want to try it!

National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day

I just found out yesterday that today is a momentous holiday. Have to say, peanut butter is one of the most amazing creations God ever invented. (It’s also the first day of March! I mean, really! Time is going like the energizer bunny  speed right now…)

That being so…these cookies feel like they’re especially calling my name.

Do you prefer tuna or salmon? Are you celebrating Peanut Butter Lovers Day?

    Hey Charissa! (As always) this recipe looks fantastic and super simple! Question: do you think tuna could be subbed for the salmon? How much?

    Aly H~ Thank you so much! Yes, I do that all the time…just replace the can of salmon with a can of tuna (about 200-230g tin). I have a post about my favourite tuna burger here:

    Good to see you back. You’ve been in my prayers.

    I used to love salmon, so I’m sure this recipe is a hit with most of your readers. The veggie salad sounds nice, too.

    I knew it was peanut butter day, but somehow I didn’t have any pb. I guess I can just make up for it today.

    Salmon is one of the few fish I can serve without much protest in this house. I love the look of these little burgers over the bed of greens. Looks so healthy and fresh!
