Salmon Burger

Servings for 4

1 lb boneless, skinless salmon fillets (prefer wild caught, not farmed!)
1/4 cup chopped sweet onion
1/4 chopped fresh parsley
4 tsp horseradish
1/2 tsp old bay 30% less sodium seasoning
4 tbsp low-fat mayo
4 whole grain or whole wheat hamburger buns, split, toasted if to taste.
2 cups worth of fresh non-cooked spinach (or use lettuce, I just wanted to be more healthy)
4 large or 8 small thin slices of tomato

  1. cut salmon into cubes and drop into a food processor. pulse till it’s the same as ground beef.
  2. transfer salmon into mixing bowl. stir in onion, parsley, 2 tsp of the horseradish, and old bay seasoning
  3. split the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape them into patties about 4" in diameter
  4. heat large non-stick skillet over med-high heat. add patties and cook 2-3 mins per side, or outsides lightly brown and cooked through.
  5. mix mayo and remaining horseradish until well combined. set to the side
  6. place each bun bottom on a plate. spread 1 tbsp of mayo mix from step 5 on each bun bottom. top with patties, followed by spinach and tomato. place bun tops on sandwich and serve.

Sounds like what we’ve called Salmon cakes for sometime. Actually quite good. We usually just eat them as an entree. No bun. I usually use ketchup on mine, but I put ketchup on everything.
