These salmon burgers are so quick to make! Use tinned salmon and you’ll have this amazing dinner on the table in 15 minutes. 

I love love love quick meals like this. We made these on a Friday night a few weeks ago and I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make.

Anything that gets dinner on the table in 15 minutes is a win for me, plus it’s healthy and so so fresh.

How was everybody’s weekends? We’ve had a lovely one. On Saturday we had some friends over for lunch which included a middle eastern feast.

We made my herby baked falafel, flatbreads, hummus, spicy aubergine, blackened cauliflower and probably a few other things that I’ve forgotten!

It was all super tasty and we had such a lovely day eating and drinking. We also played Scrabble which I won for possibly the first time ever.

Sunday we went over to my sister’s house for my niece’s first birthday party. It was very hectic but lots of fun and I love seeing my nieces and nephew plus all my other family members too of course!

Anyway, now I’m spending my Sunday evening watching bad TV and writing about these amazing salmon burgers which is pretty much the best way to spend a Sunday evening, don’t you think?

So, let’s chat about these burgers then. I cannot believe how good they are. They’re so full of herby flavour and they are so perfectly simple.

INGREDIENTS YOU NEED TO MAKE THESE SALMON BURGERS:

  • Tinned Salmon – You could use fresh if you prefer but the tinned stuff is great because you can always keep it on hand. Just make sure you get the skinless and boneless stuff.
  • Eggs
  • Panko Breadcrumbs
  • Garlic
  • Dill & Parsley – If you prefer other herbs then feel free to mix it up!
  • Lemon Juice

It’s one of my favourite things about writing recipes and working on my blog that sometimes I’ll make a recipe and Will and I will not be able to get over how good it is.

That’s what it was like with these salmon burgers. They were something I’d had in my head for a little while and we finally got around to trying them one rare Friday night when we were both at home to eat dinner together.

Just 15 minutes after getting up to make dinner we were back on the sofa in front of the TV enjoying a healthy burger.

Now that is my dream Friday night.

Panko Halloumi Sandwich with Kasundi

We always have panko breadcrumbs on hand but if you get them to make these salmon burgers then you could use them for these panko halloumi sandwiches too.

Panko Halloumi Sandwich with Kasundi. This halloumi sandwich is the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy. The sweet and spicy kasundi tastes amazing with the panko coated cheese for a filling vegetarian meal. #vegetarian #halloumi #sandwich #recipe #halloumisandwich

    This looks absolutely gorgeous! Fish burgers are something I always want to make but never quite get around to, but you’ve totally inspired me to give these a go tonight…especially as I’m a total garlic obsessive!

    I’ve always loved salmon burgers. These days, I prefer eating them on lettuce wraps. Using the canned fish makes them s quick and easy.

    Do you drain the salmon before adding other ingredients?
