30-Minute Savory Salmon Burgers

Salmon Burger On A Dixie Everyday Paper Plate.

We couldn’t believe these burgers were made with canned salmon because they taste so fresh! Using canned salmon will only set you back about 30 minutes, and it’s easier to find at the store if you live in an area with food shortages.

Raw Salmon Patties Before Cooking On Dixie Ultra Paper Plates.

Place a non-stick frying pan on the stove over medium heat. Add in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. While the oil heats up, mix in the egg and then flour your hands and form four large patties. Dust the outsides of the patties to make them easier to handle. Place the patties into the skillet, and sear on both sides for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Flip with a spatula and sear the other side for an additional 2-3 minutes.
