Macro Friendly Salmon Burgers

Weekly I try to fit some kind of fish into our meal plan. Salmon is my favorite because the healthy fats it provides. However sometimes it’s just not convenient, because it’s either frozen or I don’t have any on hand. Thankfully most days I have this wild caught canned salmon from Costco on hand.

Sometimes canned salmon isn’t on our radar, we always just gravitate towards tuna. But canned salmon alone could be used as a sub for almost any recipe you would use canned tuna for. So experiment, I just suggest looking for “wild caught”

This recipe is high in protein, full of fresh vegetables and savory flavors, I am sure will become a family favorite. This recipe is great for those nights when you don’t have much time to cook, as these burgers come together in about 30 minutes.

How to make Salmon Burgers

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed with avocado oil.

Open 2 cans of wild caught canned salmon, pour the water out and put the salmon in a bowl.

Use a fork to break up the salmon into smaller pieces. Next chop up the green onion and celery. I like to leave my vegetables larger because I like the crunch, but you could chop them up fine too. Whatever your preference.

Add the chopped celery and onion to your salmon and mix together.

Next add the almond flour and eggs and mix thoroughly. This would also be the time to season with salt, herbs or pepper. I like to add dill or sometimes oregano and basil.

Once you have added the seasoning you like and everything is mixed together, then you can start making the burgers. I like to use a 1/2 cup as my scoop. After I set them on the baking sheet I will use my hands to flatten and shape.

Bake in the oven for 8-9 minutes and then flip and bake for another 5 minutes or so. I like my burgers to be a little crispy.

How to use the Salmon Burgers

There are so many different ways to use these salmon burgers;

  • Cut up and use on salads
  • Bun, onion, tomato, mayo or mustard – basically how you would dress any other kind of burger
  • Open faced sandwich
  • Just plain…my kids like this version
  • Use a large piece of lettuce and make a lettuce wrap
  • Cut in half and make a crispy wrap using the Cut Da Carb wraps

Storage and Re-heating

Store the salmon burgers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave, air fryer or oven.
