Using canned salmon in these salmon burgers assures you can enjoy them year-round without breaking the bank. If you do not want a burger in a bun, treat the salmon patties as a main protein dish, adding vegetables and salad for sides. Please do not skip the anchovy paste. It really brightens the flavor, and you won't know it's in there.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

Drain the liquid from the canned salmon into a large mixing bowl. Set the salmon aside.

To the salmon liquid, add mayonnaise, sweet onions, celery, egg, anchovy paste, Worcestershire sauce, dill weed, and hot sauce. Mix to combine.

Remove any skin from the salmon. Fold salmon and bread crumbs into the mayonnaise mixture using a dinner fork. Do not overmix. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Form into 4 to 6 salmon burger patties.

Place a heavy skillet over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add olive oil and swirl to coat the bottom. Fry the salmon burgers until you have a nice dark crust on each side, turning only once. (Do not try to rush this process over high heat or the centers will be mushy and uncooked.)
