Lemon-Dill Salmon Burgers

  • Prep Time: 10 m
  • Cook Time: 8 m
  • Total Time: 18 m
  • Servings:
    4

Ingredients

  • 2 6-ounce fillets of salmon, finely chopped by hand or in a food processor
  • 1 cup fine breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the air fryer to 400ºF.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix together well and divide into four balls. Flatten the balls into patties, making an indentation in the center of each patty with your thumb (this will help the burger stay flat as it cooks) and flattening the sides of the burgers so that they fit nicely into the air fryer basket.
  3. Transfer the burgers to the air fryer basket and air-fry for 4 minutes. Flip the burgers over and air-fry for another 3 to 4 minutes, until nicely browned and firm to the touch.
  4. Serve on soft brioche buns with your choice of topping – lettuce, tomato, red onion, avocado, mayonnaise or mustard.

  1. I have made these salmon burgers and they are absolutely fantastic but then all her recipes are fantastic and easy to follow. Make these big beautiful salmon burgers and you won’t be disappointed. I have made them in the air fryer but was wondering how you would cook them on an outside grill.

    1. Hi Maryann. So glad you like the burgers! You could try cooking them on an outdoor grill, but the risk is they might fall apart. If you wanted to go for it, try adding a beaten egg to the mixture first so that there is a little more to bind the burgers together and try not to flip them too much. It will have a different texture at the end, but it should hold together. The alternative would be to cook them in a skillet on the stovetop OR on a griddle on your grill.
