Sesame Salmon Burgers

Superfood Sesame Salmon Burgers are a flavorful fan favorite, filled with healthy ginger, garlic, scallions, and 2 types of sesame. My boys love these burgers and I’ve been making them since they were little. They’re a child-friendly recipe that will get your kids to eat salmon.

The Perfect Low-Carb Meal

These high-protein Sesame Salmon Burgers make an incredible low-carb meal paired with my Garlic Ginger Bok Choy. Typically, I serve these incredible burgers with white rice for my boys, but since I’m on a Low-Carb Diet I skip that. I haven’t eaten rice, corn, or potatoes since 2001.

Superfood Sesame Salmon Burgers

I love making these low-carb burgers because they’re full of highly nutritious wild salmon and packed with superfoods including garlic, ginger, and sesame seeds. Sometimes I prepare the patties the night before, so that the flavors can meld and intensify. Our meal the next day is so easy because all I need to do is cook the patties in a skillet and dinner is ready!

  1. These were fabulous! The recipe made 8 of the “smaller” 1/4 c. size burgers. Both kids (Ages 8 & 12) ate 3 of them each — served over white rice seasoned with coconut oil and a head of cauliflower that I roasted/crisped up in the air fryer (chopped and seasoned – 400 degrees air fried for 15-20 min). Yum! I served with extra toasted sesame seeds and fresh squeezed lemon. Super delicious! Thank you Elana!

    • Jennifer, thanks so much for your comment. I haven’t tried that so not sure. Feel free to experiment :-)

  2. This is a beautiful, easy and delicious recipe! I love using high quality wild salmon trim which makes it more affordable, and takes away the need to cut up the salmon. Thank you!

  3. Hello. I just made a post about using something other than eggs in the recipe. I found my answer on another recipe post from your site. Thank you kindly. I got my answer.

  4. Hi Elana! These were so tasty — but I feel like I missed something. How did you get them in a patty shape? Salmon comes in long strips – How were you able to get them to form into patties? Thanks! Ana
