Spinach Salmon Burgers

  • 1.5 lbs. Scottish salmon , remove the skin and pin bones
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ¾ cup baby spinach , chopped into small pieces
  • ½ cup white onion , diced small
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice , fresh squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Whipped Feta

  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • mini pita bread
  • sliced tomatoes
  • mini cucumber slices
  • lemon wedges
  • arugula


  • 11-inch non-stick skillet
  • mixing bowl
  • food processor


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!
