Easy Salmon Burgers

This easy salmon burger recipe makes for a super easy weeknight meal. I’ve made these in a food processor, but you can also just chop all the ingredients finely if you don’t have one. You can also substitute out the dill and smoked paprika for whatever you have on hand that sounds good. (The chia seeds caught my eye in the pantry so I threw them in there, but they’re not necessary). Basically, as long as you have the salmon, breadcrumbs, and an egg, you can add (within reason!) whatever else you fancy! Have fun, and let me know what you try!

    Looks delicious! I make something similar with canned salmon and quickly-blended oats instead of breadcrumbs. I’ll have to try the dill / paprika combo!
