Taste Hawaii – Salmon Burger Recipe

If you are in the habit of grabbing something and holding it in your hands while munching on it, then salmon burgers are quite a treat for your taste buds.  Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamin B12 and selenium.


1 1/2 pounds boned and skinned fresh wild salmon, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 tablespoon drained capers, chopped

2/3 cup organic panko (Japanese) bread crumbs

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten

1 tablespoon butter

4 hamburger buns, toasted

tartar sauce, dijon mustard or dill sauce (choose one)



1. In food processor, pulse the salmon cubes several times until coarsely ground flakes. Place ground salmon in large bowl: stir in capers, bread crumbs, lemon juice, pepper, salt and egg – mix until fully combined. Divide mixture into 4 firmly compressed patties.

2. In a large sauté pan, melt butter over medium-high heat – add burgers and sauté, adjust heat as needed; cook until burgers are golden brown, then turn (2 – 2 1/2 minutes per side).


Spread tartar sauce, dijon mustard or dill sauce on inside of each toasted bun; place coleslaw on the base of bun, place a burger on top of slaw. Garnish with fresh organic sliced cucumbers and tomatoes. Serve immediately.

Servings: 4
