Lemon and Dill Salmon Burgers

Posted Dec 02 2010 9:00am

I can’t believe that I haven’t posted a burger recipe since November 10 .

What is wrong with me?


For the past few months, I’ve been buying the frozen salmon burgers from Whole Foods . They are cheap, healthy, and delicious. Whenever I need a quick lunch or dinner, I pop one in the toaster oven and I have a great meal within a matter of minutes.

Some fish (especially salmon) can be quite delicate and I was a little concerned that these patties would fall apart during the cooking process, but I was pleasantly surprised that they held together quite well.


Normally, I prefer my salmon simply grilled with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Salmon just has such a wonderful taste that it doesn’t need any complex ingredients to make it shine.

However, sometimes you just need a burger.

Sticking with my “simple salmon” philosophy, a new (and super easy) burger recipe was born.


  • 1 1/2 lbs fresh, wild salmon (I used sockeye salmon )
  • 3 TBS fresh chopped dill
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 TBS lemon juice


  1. Preheat a cast iron skillet (or grill) to medium heat.
  2. Chop the salmon into one inch pieces.
  3. In a large bowl, add the salmon, dill, salt, pepper, soy sauce, garlic, and lemon juice.
  4. With your hands, mash all of the ingredients together. You can also do this in a food processor, but I wanted some chunks of salmon in my burgers.
  5. Form into 4 burger patties.
  6. Oil the cast iron pan and cook the patties for 3-4 minutes per side, or until medium rare to medium.
  7. Do not overcook.
  8. Serve on buns with desired condiments.


I served mine on an english muffin with some BBQ sauce.

That dinner totally hit the spot.
