I wanted to update and repost this recipe. Over the weekend, my hubby brought home salmon from Costco and requested I make these burgers. I didn’t have any peppers on hand, so I went with what I had. Asparagus, I diced up 5 spears and added them to the Salmon mix, I also added 1/4 cup of finely grated Parmesan. I followed the recipe from there, they were delicious! I preferred it to the peppers! I like the added health benefit of the asparagus being in the burgers. Plus I sneak more veggies on Jacob’s plate-always a challenge!
These babies are delicious! I am always looking for a different way to cook up Salmon and this is easy and a crowd pleaser!
