These salmon burgers are the ultimate quick and easy, high-protein meal. We’re talking crispy outsides, flaky insides and perfect golden colour, not to mention lots of nutrition—thank you salmon! And what would a burger be without its toppings? Make your own homemade tartar sauce and crunchy slaw to pile high on that burger, and get ready for a satisfying experience.



Tartar Sauce:



  1. For the burgers: In a large bowl, flake the tinned salmon and break up any bones. Add the green onions, bell pepper, chili pepper, garlic, parsley, dill, breadcrumbs and 1 egg. Season with salt and pepper and mix well to combine. If the mixture seems dry, add another egg.
  2. Preheat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Divide the salmon mixture into 4 equal portions and shape into patties. Add to the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and crisp.
  3. Meanwhile, for the tartar sauce: Mix together the mayonnaise, pickles, dill, parsley, capers, Dijon, lemon zest and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. For the slaw: Whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, Dijon, sugar and onion powder in a large bowl. Add the cabbage and carrot and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. If desired, toast the buns in a skillet or under the broiler before assembling the burgers topped with tartar sauce and slaw.
