Mediterranean Style Salmon Burgers (8 Burger Patties)
These Mediterranean inspired Salmon Burgers filled with fresh vegetables and feta, topped with homemade tzatziki are light and delicious, especially this time of year. You can eat them like a hamburger, or I like to even add them to a nice green salad. They are so good, I hope you will try them.
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 Small Red Onion (5 oz), Chopped
2 Small Red Peppers (7 oz.), Chopped
¼ Cup Scallions, Chopped
2 Cups Baby Spinach, Chopped
1.5 lbs of Salmon, Chopped in a ground meat type of consistency in a food processor
3 Tbsp. Fresh Dill, Chopped
½ Cup Bread Crumbs
1 Tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Black Pepper
1 Lemon, Just the zest
⅓ Cup Crumbled Feta Cheese
8 Hamburgers Rolls, Toasted
Tzatziki (see my recipe on my website)
Lettuce and Tomatoes for Toppings for your Burger
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment.
In a frying pan heat up the olive oil and add in the red onions and saute for 5 minutes.
Next add in the red peppers and cook for 5 more minutes.
Add the scallion saute for two minutes and add in the spinach and season with a ½ tsp. of salt.
Cook for another 5 minutes, until all the veggies are cooked thru and then let it cool.
Put the chopped salmon in a bowl and add in dill, bread crumbs, ½ tsp. Salt, pepper, lemon zest.
Add in the cooled veggie mixture and feta and give this a good mix.
Form into hamburger patties and bake for 15 minutes on one side. Then flip and bake for 15 minutes on the other side.
In the meantime, make your tzatziki.
When the burgers are cooked, place on a toasted bun and top with the tzatziki, lettuce and tomato and serve.
