Asian Salmon Burgers

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!

In an effort to help you create diversity in your diet, today I am sharing with you a delicious and easy recipe that tastes great and is great for you.

These salmon burgers are chock full of nutrition. Not only do you get the Omega 3 essential fats from the salmon, but also fiber and nutrients in the spinach. They are also loaded with flavor to titillate your taste buds.

Easy to make, tasty and good for you, what could be better?

You can serve up the burgers either on a gluten-free or regular bun, or if you prefer to stick with low-carb options, between two Boston lettuce leaves. Another easy alternative is to plate it up on it’s own and pair it with my sesame cucumber salad. That’s how I enjoyed them and it was a perfect combination.

Creating variety in your diet is one key factor in helping you stick with your health goals. If you eat the same thing day in and day out you will likely get bored which could make sticking with your plan difficult. I am hoping that this recipe can become one of your go-to recipes for a healthy, delicious meal so you can stay the course and continue to develop an amazingly healthy life.

What’s YOUR favorite burger recipe? Do you have a go-to burger that is easy to make, satisfying and healthy? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below. And if you do try these burgers, I’d love to hear your feedback.

Have a great week and stay well~

Salmon Burger Recipe



Serves 4

  • 2 x 8 ounce tins of wild Alaskan salmon
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped spinach
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped dill
  • 1/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced well
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Spicy mustard to serve
  • Boston lettuce leaves to serve
  • 1-2 tablespoons Grapeseed oil


  • Combine first eleven ingredients in a bowl and mix well. You may want to use your hands to make sure that all the ingredients are well mixed.
  • Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, scoop out 1/2 cup of mixture and with your hands, mold into a patty. Repeat until you have used all the batter.
  • Using a skillet, heat the grapeseed oil over medium to high heat. When hot, add the patties and then cover to make sure they cook through. The salmon is pre-cooked but you want to make sure the egg is thoroughly cooked. Cook about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes and then flip the burgers and cook on the other side, also covering pan.
  • When burgers are cooked through, place on a Boston Lettuce leaf and top with spicy mustard. I used a horseradish mustard and it was a perfect combination. You can also serve with a sesame cucumber salad or with Spring Quinoa—Enjoy!
