Ingredients

Patties

  • 2 5 oz. cans salmon (10 oz. total)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • handful cilantro, chopped (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil spray for cooking

Topping

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • couple pinches salt

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine the salmon, garlic, cilantro, onion, eggs, mustard, lime, salt and pepper.
  2. Mix every together until well combined and allow to sit for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Spray your grill pan with olive oil, and heat it over medium-high.
  4. Grab a fistful of the salmon mixture and form a firm ball.
  5. Place the ball in the pan and allow to cook for one minute before pressing it down with the backside of your spatula to form a burger.
  6. Cook another 2 minutes, or until the bottom side is golden-brown.
  7. Gently flip and cook the other side for 2 – 3 minutes.
  8. I made smaller burgers (or sliders) so they could all cook together in the same pan.
  9. While they’re cooking, mash an avocado in a bowl with juice from the other half of the lime and a couple pinches of sea salt.
  10. Top each burger with a scoop of avocado and any extra chopped onion. Serve immediately!
