Ever wondered how you could dress up canned salmon into a delicious meal? Look no further because these
5-Ingredient Salmon Burgers are the answer.
Are you a meal planner? I try but it doesn’t always work out the way I want it to. My goal this year was to become a better planner by being more diligent about writing down what we would have for the week versus just trying to keep it all in my head. I will say I have done much better and have enjoyed not having as much added stress at 5pm wondering what to make!
That’s why these salmon burgers are key on nights when I may be low on fresh options or am looking for something simple and delicious. They require just 5 ingredients and 2 of the main ingredients are pantry staples – canned salmon and oats. Canned salmon (just like fresh salmon) is a great source of lean protein and healthy fats. Plus, it is affordable and portable.
These salmon burgers come together in no time– plus they use just 5 simple ingredients. After throwing all of the ingredients in the food processor and giving it a whirl, let the mixture sit in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes to allow it to hold together better before cooking them up in the pan.
The texture of these salmon burgers is dense reminding me of a crab cake. You certainly could put them on a bun and eat them like a “burger.” How delicious would these be with avocado, arugula and a little hot sauce? However, I love keeping them simple and boosting the flavor by topping with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and some briny capers.
