Spinach Salmon Burgers with Whipped Feta
This spinach salmon burger recipe with whipped feta is easy to make and delicious. Perfect for meal prepped lunch through the week, or as a delicious, homemade dinner recipe.
Prepare the salmon:
Remove the skin from the salmon using a sharp knife. Cube the salmon and add it to the food processor. Buzz until the salmon is ground.
Add the ground salmon to a large mixing bowl.
Next, add the panko, egg, Dijon, diced onion, chopped fresh spinach, lemon juice, and salt.
Mix until well combined. Form into patties. I was able to get 6 large patties from this mix.
Next, you’ll spray an 11-inch non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Place it over medium heat.
Add 3 patties to the pan at a time. This will prevent overcrowding the pan.
Cook for 4 minutes on each side, only flipping once. If they begin to get too brown, reduce the heat.
This will give you a medium-well temperature on your burgers.
Remove the burgers from the pan and set them aside.
Prepare the whipped feta:
Add the cream cheese, feta, lemon juice, and salt to the food processor. Buzz everything together until it's creamy and smooth, no lumps.
Assemble the burgers:
Toast your pita bread so it's warm and easy to open.
Once you open the pita, add a slice of tomato, one salmon burger, a dollop of whipped feta, sliced cucumbers, and a handful of arugula. Finish with a squeeze of lemon.
Serve and enjoy!
