I’ve been experimenting for quite awhile with salmon burger recipes. I finally made one that’s just right! I took ideas from different recipes, and got it down pretty good but the texture still wasn’t right. Then I saw a few recipes with a baked potato in it and had to try it.
It worked! We just love them, and they are great served on a bun or by itself with rice and salad.
I buy our salmon at Costco, and I’ve always been much happier with the quality than other brands. It never contains bones either, which is always nice. Happy weekend! : )
1 green onion, sliced thin
1 T mayonnaise
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon zest
14 oz canned salmon (mine doesn’t have bones-but check to make sure yours doesn’t)
1 baked or boiled russet potato, peeled and fluffed with a fork
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
oil for cooking
Mix the green onion, egg, mayo, mustard, lemon juice and zest together in a bowl.
Add the salmon and potato, mixing gently just until combined.
Form into 4 patties and roll each in the panko breadcrumbs.
Heat a little oil in a skillet (just enough to barely coat the bottom of the skillet) over medium heat and cook the patties for about 4 minutes per side, or until golden and cooked through.
Serve with a toasted bun, lettuce, and tartar sauce if desired. (Or any other accompaniments you want)
