From Real Simple

Healthy Salmon Burgers


  1. 2 pounds salmon fillet, skin removed
    2 egg whites
    1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    2 tablespoons fresh dill
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    4 whole-wheat hamburger buns


  1. Heat your grill to medium.
  2. Finely chop the salmon. Place half in a large resealable plastic bag and use a flat-surfaced meat pounder or a rolling pin to mash it.
  3. Place all the salmon in a large bowl. Combine with egg whites, mustard, bread crumbs, dill, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Form four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  4. Place the patties on grill; cook 4-5 minutes per side. (On a stovetop, heat the oil in a grill pan over medium heat, and cook patties 5 minutes per side.)
  5. Serve the patties on the buns.
