Salmon Burger w/ Cream Cheese & Capers

Salmon burger2

     I was grilling salmon burgers for dinner and wanted a new way to bling them up a bit. One of our favorite dishes is my prosciutto/avocado topping but I wanted something new. I was inspired by one of my families favorite breakfast dishes, bagels with smoked salmon, cream cheese and capers. Salmon burgers are not smoked but I thought it would be delicious just the same. I mean you cannot wrong with salmon, cream cheese and capers? You could serve the salmon burger on a bagel but used a brioche bun. I have to say this was a big hit with my family, an easy way to gussy up something and a dish we will be making again!


Salmon Burgers with Cream Cheese and Capers

Simple add to your grilled (or pan fried) salmon burger a large piece of cream cheese and any of the following;


Sliced red onion


Chopped tomatoes

Chopped hard boiled egg

Fresh dill


I buy uncooked, wild caught salmon burgers from Trader Joes but sometimes I like to make them from scratch!

Salmon Burgers
makes 4 burgers
1 ½  pound fresh, raw salmon, cut into small cubes (skinless and bones removed)
⅟ᴣ cup breadcrumbs, can use GF crumbs
1 TBL Dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ tsp ground pepper and salt

In a food processor add ½ of the salmon pieces and pulse until it is chunky but not totally smooth. It should take 20 seconds or so. Remove and add to the rest of salmon to a bowl with the remaining ingredients.  Gently mix with a spoon until just combined. Form 4 equally-sized burgers. You can grill or fry in a hot, greased pan (or greased grill) about 4-5 minutes on each side. Let the first side get really cooked before turning over the burger because they are fragile. Garnish and enjoy!

Sounds right up my alley!


Sounds yummy! We're having trout fillets tomorrow, with toasted almonds, new potatoes and a garden salad. I have so many lettuces in my kitchen garden, all ready at once of course. We shall soon be like the Flopsy bunnies!
