Salmon Burgers (gf + paleo)

These salmon burgers are such a quick, delicious and healthy meal! I love making these whenever I have leftover salmon from dinner the night before. I came up with the idea because I always found that I was wasting my salmon leftovers since I don’t love the way it tastes just re-heated the next day. These burgers were the perfect solution!

In the pictures, I show the burgers served over my Kale + Quinoa Greek Salad, which I think fits it perfectly.



1 ¼ cups cooked salmon (use canned or cook before making burgers)

1 egg

¼ cup almond flour or GF breadcrumbs

¼ tsp paprika

¼ tsp salt

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tbsp fresh chive

¼ tsp garlic powder

Olive oil for cooking


For the sauce (modified from Betty Crocker recipe):

1 single-serve container of plain greek yogurt

1 tbsp dill

1 tbsp lemon juice, plus more to taste

1 tsp lemon zest

Dash of pepper and salt



  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients thoroughly with a fork. Make sure the salmon is in fine shreds.
  2. Pat the mixture into about 4 burgers and cook in a frying pan with olive oil at medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until heated through and nicely browned on both sides.
  3. Serve hot over salad, with a dollop of yogurt sauce on top.
