Salmon Burgers

I wanted to update and repost this recipe.  Over the weekend, my hubby brought home salmon from Costco and requested I make these burgers.  I didn’t have any peppers on hand, so I went with what I had.  Asparagus, I diced up 5 spears and added them to the Salmon mix, I also added 1/4 cup of finely grated Parmesan.  I followed the recipe from there,  they were delicious!  I preferred it to the peppers!  I like the added health benefit of the asparagus being in the burgers.  Plus I sneak more veggies on Jacob’s plate-always a challenge! 🙂


These babies are delicious!  I am always looking for a different way to cook up Salmon and this is easy and a crowd pleaser!
