Dill Salmon Burgers

Preparation time:
10 mins
Cooking time:

Salmon canned with its bones supplies extra calcium; the bones disintegrate during mixing. This recipe also works with canned crab or tuna.


160 g canned red salmon, drained
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 egg
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried dill)
2 tablespoons Greek-style fat-free yoghurt
1 teaspoon country-style Dijon mustard
4 wholemeal rolls (50 g each)
Tomato slices


1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Coat a small baking sheet with cooking spray, or use a non-stick baking sheet.
2. Mix together the salmon, onion, egg, breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, and dill. Make 4 patties (1/2 cup of salmon mixture each) about 10 cm in diameter.
3. Place the patties on the baking sheet and bake for about 20 to 22 minutes, until lightly browned.
4. Combine the yoghurt and mustard in a small bowl. Stir to mix thoroughly. Divide the yoghurt mixture evenly and spread it on the rolls. Serve the burgers on the rolls and top with the lettuce and tomato.
