Salmon Burgers

First of all, if you haven't checked out LaDonna Gunderson's tome on cooking everything with salmon, you should do it! 

Mom picked up a copy for each of us, and we find it an incredibly useful resource for new recipes using canned salmon (though it contains recipes for fresh and smoked salmon as well).

I don't want to give away the recipe here because I really do want you to buy the book, but it should be no surprise to our Alaskan friends and family that the main ingredients in salmon burgers are:

  • canned salmon
  • eggs
  • panko crumbs (regular bread crumbs will do if you don't have panko crumbs)
  • onion
  • garlic
  • basil (or dill, depending on your preference)
The sauce includes:
  • mayonnaise
  • lemon juice
  • basil (or dill, depending on your preference)
S. and I made these on Saturday AND Sunday. One 32-oz jar of salmon yields 4 medium-sized patties. Be sure to drain the salmon well, and don't make the patties too large or they will fall apart.
