Super Yummy Salmon Burgers

I’ve been busy cooking! I made these salmon burgers the other day as a way to try out my new bacon-naise and I am making them again tonight because they were so yummy! I had them this morning for breakfast and was surprised that they were so good cold – who knew? So, for those of you looking for a high protein breakfast that ISN’T eggs, this could very well be your solution! I think they would be great at any meal though….

I really wanted to get a wild salmon recipe up because it’s just so darned good for ya! A can of salmon will give you all the Omega3 fatty acids you need in a day along with loads of good quality protein. And don’t even consider picking out those little bones in the salmon! In a 6 ounce serving of wild canned salmon there is 400mg of highly absorbable calcium in those bones! That’s 100mg MORE than an 8ounce glass of milk!! Whoever said you had to eat dairy to get calcium?

Keep in mind when making these, they keep well and work for any meal or snack….make extra! This recipe makes 9 small burgers, see serving suggestions below.

(Tip -If you want to make them as appetizers, simply roll them into little “meatballs” and serve topped with a small piece of bacon or a thin slice of avocado)


3 cans of wild salmon, drained

1 carrot grated

1/2 cup ground almonds

3 tbsp bacon-naisse (or just use 2 tbsp mayo and one tbsp bacon fat)

Mash everything up together and form the mixture into 9 “burger like” patties and place them on a parchment lined (or oiled) cookie sheet. Move an oven rack to the highest setting and place the patties on low broil for approximately 10 minutes per side. Be gentle in flipping them, they can be a bit fragile. When done, try serving them one of the following ways;

  • A slice of bacon and drizzled with dressing (I used a tbsp of bacon-naise, melted and mixed with 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar) over wilted spinach (pictured)
  • A slice of bacon and a heaping scoop of guacamole
  • Burger style with your favourite fixin’s on a bed of salad greens
  • Cold and plain as a snack or breakfast!
