Low Carb Salmon Burgers
A delicious, fresh burger, hot off the grill, is a meal that everyone craves in the summer. There is just something about burgers that screams of summertime fun. However, sometimes you may not want such a hearty burger. Classic beef burgers can be quite filling. Or maybe you are just trying to limit your red meat intake and a beef burger is off the table. In either case, you may be looking for a new burger option that will still give you that great summertime taste without the heavy taste of ground beef. So, we would like to introduce you to the salmon burger.
Rather than use meat to make our burger patties this summer, we are using salmon to make perfect, light and keto friendly burgers. Salmon burgers are incredibly quick to make and loaded with flavor thanks to the salmon itself and our blend of perfect herbs. You are going to fall in love with this recipe and we know that it will be on your menu many times this summer. After you fall in love with grilling these salmon patties on hot summer nights, don’t worry, you can easily make them in a skillet on your stovetop all winter long too! Salmon burgers are great year round!

To make these burgers, we use a pound of boneless canned salmon. There are lots of different types of canned salmon on your grocery store shelves so you want to be sure to choose one of the highest quality. Look for sockeye salmon which is usually the best in flavor and nutrients. A salmon that is packed in water or one that is packed in oil will work for this recipe. While many people usually look for canned fish packed in water to cut back on fats, the keto diet encourages healthy fats! So a salmon that is canned in olive oil is a perfect choice!
The blend of spices and herbs that we use to make these salmon patties is key to their success. Dill is a classic match for salmon so we were sure to use plenty of it in this recipe. Fresh chopped parsley is another great choice to serve with salmon and chives add a delicious, light, oniony taste. Fresh herbs are usually easy to find in the summer (maybe you ever have some in your patio garden!) so feel free to use some extra- the burgers will taste great with a touch more parsley!
Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl and then form patties sized to your liking. Cook the salmon patties on your outdoor grill or just in a skillet inside your house. While we love these low carb salmon burgers served on their own, you can make them into a lettuce wrap or place them on a keto bun to enjoy like a traditional burger. This recipe should definitely be on the menu at your next family cookout as it is one everyone will love. Reimagining the traditional summertime burger is what this recipe is all about! You’re going to love them.
