Chili-Herb Salmon Burgers | Sitka Salmon Shares

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 5 min
Total time: 50 min
Serves: 2-4


  • For Burgers:
  • 1 (1-pound) package salmon burger meat
  • 1 carrot, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint
  • 1-2 tablespoons chili paste
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 small onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • For Serving:
  • Fresh chives, chopped
  • Mixed baby greens
  • Lemon wedges


In a food processor, add carrot, garlic, dill, mint, chili paste, Dijon mustard, and 1⁄4 of the salmon. Pulse until ingredients are uniform, about 10 times.

Add the remaining salmon, along with the onion, and pulse a few times to incorporate.

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Add the oats and the capers, and stir to incorporate.

Cover the bowl with plastic and refrigerate 1-4 hours. This step is optional, but will help firm-up the burgers for grilling.

Using clean, slightly wet, hands, form patties. Transfer each to a parchment lined tray. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes.

Oil a skillet or grill. Fry until crispy & golden brown, or grill until cooked through.

Serve with lemon wedges. Garnish with chives.

Heather's pro cooking tip: If you don’t have a food processor or just want to save some time, you can always just dice the ingredients and mix everything by hand. The burgers will still be delicious.
