Grilled Salmon Burgers


I've been making these Salmon burgers for a while. I think I first started making them when hubby and I were on a diet kick and I was sick of just grilling our never-ending supply of Salmon that I bought at Costco. Well, I was at Costco the other day and came across some salmon. Hmmmm....I haven't made Salmon Burgers in a while, might as well grill some again.

This is a really quick and easy way to use up Salmon or any type of flaky fish that you might have. Yummy and healthy too.

2 1/2 cups flaked salmon (or a 14 3/4 oz canned salmon)
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 Tbsp. Dijon-style mustard (I used regular mustard)
3/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/2 cup sliced green onions
3 egg whites
salt & pepper to taste

1) Combine lemon juice and mustard. Blend together flaked salmon, breadcrumbs, green onions, and lemon juice with mustard mixture. Mix in egg whites until well blended. Add salt and pepper to taste.

2) Form mixture into patties and cook on a lightly oiled grill or saute in a skillet until golden brown on both sides. Serve on a bun with lettuce, tomato slices, and condiments.
