Homemade Salmon Burgers

This salmon burger isn't only a delicious and luxurious easy midweek dinner, but it is also a great alternative for your classic beef or pork burger. Organic salmon like our Wild Canadian salmon is high in good fats, low in sodium, high in iron and protein, too. Use this as an alternative to the cholesterol unfriendly hamburger and feel high-class any old afternoon.


  • 500gm fresh salmon, skin removed 
  • 1/4 cup fine breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped 
  • 1 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin 
  • 1 egg, beaten 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • Olive oil for cooking 


1. Either tear or the salmon into small pieces and place in a food processor. If you don't have a food processor, you may just have to work on refining the pieces with a knife or your hands. In the food processor, pulse a few times until the salmon is finely chopped but not pureed. Transfer the chopped salmon to a large mixing bowl. 

2. Add the breadcrumbs, red onion, garlic, dill, paprika, cumin, egg, salt, and pepper. Mix until everything is well combined.

3. Divide the salmon mixture into 4 equal portions and form them into burger patties. 

4. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the salmon burgers for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through and golden brown on the outside. Or, cook in an air fryer for 15 minutes on 180°.

5. Serve the salmon burgers on buns with your favourite toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, avocado, and a dollop of tartar sauce or aioli.
