I found this recipe hidden in the depths of my GIANT “tried and true” binder and I was so happy to rediscover it. I haven’t made these Salmon Burgers with Sriracha Lime Mayo in years! When one of my favorite brands, Redmond, reached out to me to do a collaboration, I thought this would be the perfect recipe to share. If you aren’t familiar with Redmond, they make my favorite salt (among other things). You might be surprised to hear that it is ancient sea salt mined right here in Utah. Redmond Real Salt is unrefined and full of natural minerals. It tastes AMAZING and has totally changed my cooking. Once I started using their products over a year ago, I have never used another salt! If you’ve seen my TV segments, Redmond Real Salt ALWAYS makes a cameo!
Now, let me tell you about these incredible burgers! These salmon burgers are made with fresh salmon filets not canned salmon. Did anyone else grow up with “salmon patties” made with canned salmon? Yuck! I remember dousing them with ketchup as a kid to make them edible. Ha!
The flavors are so bright and fresh with the cilantro, fresh ginger, green onions, garlic, and lemon juice. The patties are formed very easily with panko and egg as the binding ingredients. A quick pan fry for about 10 minutes and they are ready to devour!
The Sriracha Lime Mayo is a must! Just five ingredients: mayonnaise, fresh lime juice, Sriracha, red onion and salt. It is the perfect accompaniment to the burgers! Add some lettuce, avocado, and your favorite buns and you have the perfect salmon burger. You can even omit the bun-whatever your preference!
