Make waves and earn raves at your next cookout serving up salmon burgers, an unexpected but utterly delicious take on traditional backyard fare. My recipe for Salmon, Zucchini & Quinoa Burgers with Original Thousand Island is fresh, fast and filled with wholesome ingredients to add extra nutrients and summery color to your plate.
Using fresh salmon is key to making juicy, succulent patties and, after one bit, will instantly erase any bad memories you might have of mom using the canned stuff back in the day. My mom used canned salmon because it “fit the budget,” but little did she know that by mixing in chopped veggies and quinoa, she could make a single pound of fresh fish filets stretch to serve 6, even 8!
Seriously, you are just half an hour away from one of the best burgers you've everr eaten, including beef and beyond. The patties only take 10 minutes to prepare, 10 minutes to chill, and 10 minutes to grill, leaving you more time to wine down – errrh, I mean “wind” down with friends and family.
As if these salmon burgers aren’t tasty enough, the flavor is even more off-the-hook with the addition of Original Thousand Island dressing proving that sometimes the classics are best! And, the dressing also doubles as a dip for chips and veggies.
