Crazy good!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were exceptional and my guests couldn't stop raving about them. I made them into sliders. I did add some extra bread crumbs to help them stay together better. Once they got a good sear on one side they were much sturdier. I cooked them ahead of time on a griddle and then warmed them up a bit in the oven and they were not dry at all. They were delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious!!! This was the first time I ever made salmon burgers.I put the salmon in the food processor.I left out the peppers & the sesame oil which I didn't have, made them into sliders & put on slider buns.My husband who isn't a fan of fish especially salmon loved it.I would definitely make these again.It was so easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the first salmon burger I ever made, and I don't see any reason to try a different recipe. Make sure to chop the bell peppers pretty small, it helps with the texture. I've made them a couple hours early and let them chill in the fridge before cooking...fiance said they stayed together on the grill just fine for him. I added a couple chopped scallions, and added sliced avocado to the toppings. I would highly recommend adding avocado! The sesame mayo is great too. They reheated fine for me when I used the oven/toaster oven, but I once mistakenly microwaved one and it was not great. Great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't love salmon, but I LOVE these burgers. I haven't served them to anybody that didn't love them too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were delicious!!!! I added a bit more panko crumbs to hold them together and grilled them on a vented pan on the grill so they wouldn't fall through. The sesame mayo adds a nice flavor. They were great leftover, so make a batch and eat them through the week. I will definitely make these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed the recipe to a tee and it was great. I grilled the burgers indoors. The mayonnaise was a real discovery. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Didnt have Panko used italian bread crumbs instead, used egg beaters instead of eggs and only added lemon juice to mayonnaise. Despite all of the modifications It still tasted great! Its fast and easy as well as healthy! Love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor was terrific for these burgers but my problem was that they wouldnt stay together after I put in pan. I think it will need more panko. My boyfriend who is not a huge salmon eater loved these! item not reviewed by moderator and published
