Salmon Burgers with Lemon-Yoghurt Sauce

    1 hour

    These are a little like crab cakes, but they're made with fresh salmon and cooked on the barbecue. The secret to juicy salmon burgers is to chop the salmon coarsely with a knife instead of blending it in a food processor.

    Delicious. I will make the burgers bigger next time. Loved it.  -  23 Mar 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very good! I believe recipes are only general guidelines so .... I Used sautéed regular onions since I don’t do green onions. Added some garlic because garlic makes everything better. For the sauce I substituted garlic for the green onions. Used way less parsley, added a light pinch of dill and Old Bay Seasoning.  -  19 Mar 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
