To Make Salmon Burger

  1. Make sure to flake apart the salmon.

  5. Fry the burger patties for a few minutes on one side and then a few minutes on the other side. The texture should be crispy and golden brown.

To Make Cabbage Slaw

When you serve the burger as the leftover Salmon recipes, it is best to do it on top of the creamy slaw. I myself like to top my burger with oil swizzle, more herbs, and extra yogurt.


  • Keep in mind that breadcrumbs are super important because it will be responsible for the texture. Panko breadcrumbs would deliver a super nice texture. But if you want to avoid the refined grains, whole wheat type would be the perfect option. In the event you choose seasoned breadcrumb mix, make sure to reduce the salt (in the burger) to a half.
  • Feel free to use any type of salmon, such as grilled, leftover steamed, baked, and poached. If you don’t have any fresh salmon ready, you can even use the canned one! You can try making Poached Salmon Recipes, if you want to.
  • You can store the burger in the fridge (for 3 days) or in the freezer (for 3 months). Use the nonstick skillet if you want to reheat it. But don’t store the slaw – it is best consumed immediately.
