First time trying salmon burgers using whole salmon vs canned. I chose to skin it and debone it, which was a little time consuming but no big deal. The mixture held together nicely and didn't crumble when I put it in the pan. The flavor was fantastic! My husband raved about them and definitely wants them again! They are very tasty and a nice change from salmon fillets.

My kids loved these burgers! They didn't leave a crumb behind! I wasn't exactly sure how many pounds of salmon I had, so I used 2 eggs to be safe and they stayed together perfectly. We topped them with melted cheese and tomatoes on a whole wheat bun, fantastic meal and a nice change from the ordinary.

My husband and daughter both really liked these. They were easy to put together and to cook. I served them on thin whole wheat buns with lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise. Sides of coleslaw and red potato fries made a nice accompaniment. These didn't need any egg to bind them, as salmonis pretty sticky. Thanks!

Thanks for posting a recipe with fresh salmon. My husband loves canned salmon and I've tried a similar recipe, but I loved this one. Used an onion, because I didn't have scallions and added some additional seasonings, plus a bunch of fresh herbs. Sautéed in some olive oil and I thought it was great. Hubby wants canned salmon, but I'll use this more often and buy the canned salmon for him. Great recipe. So easy and light.

I love, love, LOVE tuna burgers so I thought. .... why not! Preparing the fish was a little yucky; which is to be expected. ( It smelled great when it was cooking! ) I did set the patties in the fridge a few min. To firm up which helps a lot....anywho, once everything was all ready I took one bite and spit it out! It was awful. It tasted like fishy nasty in my mouth. If you're thinking I don't understand the "star system" you're wrong. My family seriously like it. My 13 year old daughter even ate mine AFTER eating her own. They all just ate it up! So I would recommend it, maybe I am the only one that hates it!!

I did this over the weekend and my husband loved it so much. They were very good and held up on the grill perfectly
