salmon burgers | designlovefest

last week bri and i got a delivery of meals from blue apron. we made the steak lettuce wraps together but one of the meals was salmon burgers which i made at home and loved. and it inspired me to re-create them for you (this isn’t sponsored, they were just really good)! typically i’d make a salmon burger by just putting a fillet of salmon on a bun with all of the fixings. but these were great because you cook the fish and then mix it with herbs, bread crumbs, etc and create patties. i don’t know why i’d never thought to make them this way before but it was super easy and really flavorful. they’re also very adaptable, you could add a variety of fresh or dried herbs, some lemon, chopped onion, garlic, etc.

they would also be good to make with a cut of fish that you didn’t feel was ideal for serving alone (maybe not as fresh as you’d like) because there are a lot of other flavors involved. we served ours on toasted brioche buns and they were so good. try them! – joanie
