Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers
I love this recipe and make it regularly. I do adjust some of the amounts of spices to our taste, and usually make bigger patties than it calls for. A word about the "grossness" of canned salmon: depending upon the brand you buy, some do contain skin and bones, but you can get others that are more like tuna. I just remove the skin, feed it to my cat or throw it away. The bones are so soft that they just mash into mush and disappear into the mixture with no effect on taste. you will not choke on one of these bones-- trust me.
I know it sounds gross, but it's actually a terrific source of calcium and really good for you. Trader Joe's makes a can of pink wild Alaskan salmon about the size of a tuna can that is skinless and boneless. It works well with this recipe but you need to adjust the amounts to keep it together more. Two cans with the recipe as written but making 4 patties works pretty well even though it's 12 oz instead of 16. In general, though, I think the flavor is better when you use the red salmon and deal with the skin and bones.
