Why You’ll Love Salmon Burgers

  • The juicy, tender salmon patty. Of course, you could slap a seared Garlic Butter Salmon filet on a burger and call it a salmon burger — but it just wouldn’t be the same. This salmon patty is made with carefully chopped fresh salmon, breadcrumbs, dill, and a special blend of aromatics to create a flavorful, tender, and juicy salmon burger patty that is thick.
  • It’s a healthy and tasty alternative to classic burgers. You can’t go wrong with traditional Classic Beef Burgers, but sometimes you crave a burger that is a little different. These salmon burgers give you an option that’s delicious and healthy without sacrificing protein or flavor.
  • Topped with a simple and easy coleslaw. Although these salmon burgers are seasoned well, you Require to serve them with the something saucy — and the coleslaw with creamy dressing does not disappoint. But of course you could choose your favorite burger toppings and add some tarter sauce.
  • Serve them with or without a bun. You can serve the salmon patties with a bread bun or serve them bunless in a lettuce wrap or over Coleslaw or any other salad you Like.
