Maple Mustard Salmon Burger

This burger is all Canadian: fresh salmon, maple syrup and mustard (which grows in the Prairies). Salmon is packed with omega-3, and adding ground flax ups the ante. Tip These burgers are best pan fried.

Prep Time
10 minutes
Cook Time
55 minutes
  • 1-1/2 lb boneless, skinless salmon fillet, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely ground fresh bread crumbs, or panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp ground flax
  • 3 tbsp finely minced red onion
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped red pepper
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 6 buns, split and toasted
  • Microgreens
  • Store-bought coleslaw
  1. Combine salmon in a large bowl with bread crumbs, ground flax, red onion, red pepper, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, soy sauce and chives. Mix gently, but well, until combined. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form into patties, sized to fit the buns. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat oil in non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Pan fry patties 6 minutes (do not move while cooking). Flip patties over and fry another 6 minutes. Serve each salmon burger in a split and toasted bun, and garnish with microgreens and store-bought coleslaw.
