Crispy Salmon Burgers, yes, in 15 minutes or less. How does that sound?
Busy nights or weekends call for quick-fix menus, preferably assembled from items sitting on my pantry shelf or from always-in-the-refrigerator staples. This recipe is one of my go-to weeknight dinners for those crazy days.
The best part is these Crispy Salmon Burgers are loaded with essential nutrients my whole family needs. No sacrifices here!
Now… let’s talk about salmon.
Can this recipe be made with fresh salmon? Answer: Yes. You can use leftover, already cooked steamed, poached, grilled, baked or whatever you have… salmon.
But I use canned salmon. I have a couple of varieties I like best; Bear & Wolf, Trident – found at Costco, or Wild Planet canned salmon at Whole Foods. What makes these Salmon Burgers so convenient is having canned salmon in the pantry. It’s always there and ready for these truly easy, 15-minute lunch or dinners.Print
