Grilled Smoked Salmon Burger Recipe

Ingredients (Serves 6)
Time: Under 30 Minutes

  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet, skinless and boneless

  • 8 oz smoked salmon ends (available at most delis), finely chopped
    If smoked salmon is too pricey for you then skip this ingredient and up the salmon fillet to 2 pounds.
  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet, skinless and boneless

  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped white onion

  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped green onions (chives)

  • 1 lemon, quartered

  • 1/4 cup herb garlic cream cheese

  • 6 burger buns, split and toasted (sliced bagel works well too)

  • Grilling Instructions

    1. Preheat the grill as follows:

    Direct heat, medium-high
    (425 - 450 degrees F)

    Direct heat, light ash, grate should be on lowest setting

    Direct heat, light ash, 3 - 4 inches deep, grate should be 2 inches above the fire

    2. Chop the salmon fillet by hand rather than in a food processor so that it doesn't turn to mush. It should be fine enough that it clings to itself.

    In a large bowl, mix together the chopped salmon fillet, smoked salmon ends, garlic, salt, pepper, onion, chives, and the juice from two of you lemon wedges. Don't overmix. With a light touch, form into 12 patties no more than 1/2 inch thick.

    Place equal amounts of herb garlic cream cheese in the middle of 6 of the salmon burger patties, place remaining 6 patties on top, press together, and seal edges well. This will keep the cheese from oozing out onto your grill and making a mess during the grilling process. Refrigerate them until the grill is ready.

    3. Clean and liberally oil grill grate. Grill salmon burger patties, covered, 8 minutes total, flipping once halfway through.

    4. Remove your burgers from the grill once they are at your desired level of doneness.

    5. Allow them to rest a few minutes before serving to let the juices settle.

    6. These smoked salmon burgers don't need a lot of toppings because they are so full of flavor. They taste great topped with just lettuce and tomatoes. Try 'em with a side of our grilled asparagus.
