Make salmon patties

  1. Preheat oven in the grill setting.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix all the salmon patty ingredients, except cooking spray, until well combined.
  3. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions. Using your hands, form each portion into a flat round patty.
  4. Lightly grease a nonstick baking tray with cooking spray. Place salmon patties on top. Grill in the oven for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Make the slaw and assemble burgers

  1. While the salmon patties are grilling, prepare your slaw. Julienne green apple, and thinly slice fennel bulb with a knife.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine Greek yogurt, lemon juice and garlic powder. 
Toss in apple and shaved fennel. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Slice and toast burger buns. Assemble burgers by placing a salmon patty and a generous pile of slaw on each bun. Serve immediately with lemon wedges. Enjoy!
  • I used a mixture of leftover steamed salmon and canned salmon because that is what I have. Although any cooked salmon will work well for this recipe.
  • Feel free to use any buns that suit your dietary needs eg. gluten-free, wholewheat, high-protein, etc.
  • For a lower-carb meal, feel free to skip the buns and just serve the salmon patties naked with slaw.
  • For gluten-free, substitute panko crumbs with crushed, unflavored rice cereal or a gluten-free panko.
