Fire up your grill and get ready to craft some handmade salmon burgers. With our specially crafted recipe, your patties will never be dry; in fact, they’ll be perfectly moist and delicately covered with Sargento® Sliced Provolone Cheese that will melt just enough to marvelously attach the fresh ingredient toppings and perfectly toasted bun on top.

  • 1 lb. salmon fillet, skin and pin bones removed, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 Tbsp. peeled, minced fresh ginger
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 green onions, including 2 inches of green tops, very thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp. kosher or sea salt
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup cracker meal
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 4 slices Sargento® Sliced Provolone Cheese
  • 4 sesame seed hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Lettuce leaves or baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 green onion, including green tops, very thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce
  1. For salmon burgers, in a food processor fitted with the metal blade, pulse the salmon until coarsely ground, scraping down the sides of the work bowl once or twice. (Be careful; it’s easy to go from chopped to a mashed paste in seconds!) Transfer the salmon to a medium bowl. Add the ginger, garlic, green onions, cilantro, salt, lemon juice and soy sauce. Using a rubber spatula, mix to combine. Mix in the cracker meal; add the eggs. Stir to combine.
  2. Dividing the salmon mixture evenly; form into four 1-inch-thick patties. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes before cooking. (The patties can be prepared up to 8 hours ahead. Transfer to a covered container and refrigerate.)
  3. In a large, heavy skillet, preferably cast-iron, heat the oil over medium-high heat and swirl to coat the pan. (You can also use a grill pan.) Add the salmon patties and cook until golden brown on one side, about 3 minutes. Turn and cook until opaque throughout and golden brown on the other side, about 3 minutes longer. Top each burger with a slice of cheese. Serve the salmon burgers on the toasted buns with the lettuce and Green Onion and Soy Sauce Mayonnaise.
  4. For the Green Onion and Soy Sauce Mayonnaise, in a small bowl mix the mayonnaise, green onion, lemon juice and soy sauce until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
