Asian Salmon Burgers by Amy

Here’s a note from Amy: “My family and I LOVE salmon burgers.  I used to buy freshly made wild salmon burgers from the seafood department of my local grocery store because finely chopping a salmon fillet to make my own salmon burgers was just too much work.  I was so happy to find your Easy Salmon!  Making my own wild salmon burgers is now beyond easy.  Now my family and I can have homemade salmon burgers any time we like and we know exactly what is going into them.  Here is our favorite salmon burger recipe.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”


1 lb                        Alaska Gold Easy Salmon, defrosted

½ cup                    panko breadcrumbs

½ cup                    scallions, finely sliced (white and green parts)

2 Tbsp                   garlic, finely minced

1 Tbsp + 1 tsp     ginger, fresh, peeled, finely minced

2 Tbsp                   soy sauce, low sodium

1 large                   egg, lightly beaten

½ tsp                     toasted sesame oil (optional)

1 Tbsp                   sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Preheat grill to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all of the above ingredients.
  3. Form into 4-6 evenly portioned burger patties.
  4. Grill, 6-8 minutes on each side.
  5. Place burgers on a bun and add your favorite toppings. The burgers are so flavorful, we usually top with just mayonnaise and lettuce.  Enjoy!

Cooking tip 1:  These burgers can also be cooked on the stove top – complete steps 2 and 3, preheat large skillet over medium-high heat, add a little oil to the skillet, cook burger 6-8 minutes on each side.  I have also cooked these burgers on a panini press/electric grill – 6-8 minutes total – no flipping necessary.

Cooking tip 2:  After step 3, freeze burgers for 20 minutes, then grill/cook on stove top – helps the burgers to stay together during grilling/cooking.
