Salmon Burgers:

  • 1 lb. Scottish salmon, remove skin and chop small
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup sweet onion, diced small, almost minced
  • ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs, or Italian
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon black pepper

Yogurt Sauce:

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt, plain
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped small
  • 2 teaspoons capers
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon black pepper


  • 1 skillet
  • 1 food processor
  • 1 mixing bowl


  • Deskin and remove pin bones from the salmon filet, if it’s not already done for you. Next, cube salmon into medium-sized pieces.
  • Add cubed salmon to a food processor, lightly chop. (Be careful to not over chop salmon. It will make the patties get too dense when cooked.)
  • Remove the salmon from the food processor and place in a small mixing bowl. Then, add the mustard, finely diced onion, panko breadcrumbs, salt and black pepper. Gently combine.
  • Form salmon mixture into four evenly sized burger patties. Lightly spray a skillet with cooking spray and cook patties for 4-5 minutes on each side over medium heat. (This will give you a medium-temperature burger.)
  • For the lemon dill yogurt sauce, combine plain yogurt, capers, lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, chopped dill, salt and pepper. in a small bowl. Add toppings of your choice to burgers and finish with a dollop of yogurt sauce.
