Serves: 4 servings 

Salmon Burgers: 

1½ cups (2-5 oz. filets) wild-caught cooked salmon, chopped (may substitute canned salmon) 

Juice of 1 lemon + ½ tsp lemon zest 

1 small shallot, minced (may substitute 2 cloves garlic, minced) 

2 green onions, chopped 

1 Tbsp. fresh dill (may substitute 1 tsp dried dill) 

2 tsp. Dijon mustard 

¼ tsp. salt 

¼ tsp. pepper

⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper (optional) 

2 eggs

3 Tbsp flour

1 Tbsp olive oil 

Instructions:

1. Combine all of the salmon burger ingredients except the oil in a large bowl and mix well. If using canned salmon, drain and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.

3. Heat oil on a griddle or pan to medium high heat. 

4. Carefully add burgers to pan and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side or until cooked through. 

5. To serve, top with tarter sauce, or mashed avocado
