Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 - 2 pounds salmon fillet, skin removed and cut into large chunks (see note below)
  • 1 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced jalapeno pepper, optional (remove seeds and ribs of pepper; add based on level of spiciness desired)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat panko (for gluten-free, use GF bread crumbs)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Cooking spray for the grill

Instructions

  1. In a large food processor, pulse salmon with red onion, jalapeno pepper (if using), lemon juice, panko, salt, and pepper until mostly chopped. Divide salmon mixture into 8 equal portions and form into patties. Refrigerate burgers for 30 minutes.

  2. Heat grill to 450-500 degrees F. Spray grates with nonstick cooking spray or brush with oil. (Or line grates with a piece of oil-coated foil - see note below.)

  3. Remove salmon burgers from refrigerator and place on grill. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until cooked through. If you like your salmon more well done, cook 1 to 2 minutes longer.
