I love salmon! Unfortunately, it is so expensive so we don’t eat it fresh that often. Growing up, we never had fresh salmon but we ate plenty of salmon patties.
This recipe came about today as I was wondering what my son and I were going to eat for lunch because I sent the leftovers with my husband to work. The only meat that wouldn’t take lots of time to prepare was canned salmon. So here we are! I always keep my Sandwich buns on hand for those moments you need a quick meal and this was one of those moments. This is a simple but tasty burger. I thought I would put some avocado on it or even some bacon but I feel this salmon burger is better left simple! You could also eat it without the bun if you like. And yes, I love mayo. Luckily, I make my own so I don’t feel so guilty! 😉
