Sassy Salmon Burgers
Crisp on the outside, tender and flavorful on the inside, tuck these salmon burgers inside a soft roll with mayo, a squeeze of lemon and a lettuce leaf.
2 (14.75-ounce) cans salmon, drained and flaked
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs - divided use
3 large eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons crushed dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 soft rolls, split and toasted
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 lemon, juiced
4 lettuce leaves
- Combine salmon, 1/4 cup bread crumbs, beaten eggs, parsley, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix well and form into 4 large patties. Dredge until evenly coated in remaining bread crumbs.
- Heat oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and crisp. Adjust heat as needed to brown evenly.
- Spread mayonnaise on bottom halves of rolls. Top with salmon patties. Sprinkle with lemon juice and top with lettuce leaves and cover with top halves. Serve immediately.
