Everything Burgers

Today's recipe is inspired by Rachael Ray's "Everything Salmon Burgers" featured in the Big Orange Book (Bob).

The recipe is a play on everything bagels and lox and cream cheese. Of course, I did a little lightening up with my buddy greek yogurt. I was craving a burger and this salmon version did the trick. Making the patties from scratch was super easy and far more tasty than any fresh or frozen salmon patty I have ever purchased at the store. It's worth the extra 5 minutes of effort!

Everything Salmon Burgers


  • For Burgers
    • 1 pound fresh salmon, skin removed, cut into chunks
    • 1 tbsp grill seasoning (like Montreal Steak or similar)
    • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
    • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
    • 1 tsp onion powder
    • 1 tbsp dried dill or 1/4 c. fresh dill
    • Cooking spray
  • For Spread
    • 1/4 c. light whipped cream cheese
    • 1/4 c. non fat plain greek yogurt
    • 6 green onions, diced
    • 2 tsp. lemon zest
    • juice of one lemon
  • Kaiser rolls, or other roll of your choice
  • Lettuce, tomato, red onion for topping
  • First we want to make the spread so all the flavors have time to come together
  • Combine all ingredients for the spread, stir well, and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes
  • Place salmon chunks in food processor and process until ground
  • Place in bowl and combine with remaining burger ingredients
  • Form patties of your desired size
  • Heat a pan over medium high heat, spray with cooking spray
  • The salmon has so much oil that it will not stick to the pan
  • Cook patties for 4 minutes on each side or until lightly brown
  • Serve with spread, lettuce, tomato and onion on the roll of your choice
Spread ingredients ready to be mixed.

mmm salmon

These burgers went perfectly with a cucumber onion potato salad that I will share with you at a later date....

Happy noshing!
