  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped (may substitute dried dill, but decrease to 1 teaspoon)
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs (substitute gluten free bread crumbs if needed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 3 stems green onion, chopped (reserve for serving)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (reserve for cooking)

For the Caper and Dill Cream Sauce

  • 1/2 cup sour cream (may sub mayo for dairy free option)

Instructions
 

For the burgers

  • Add all ingredients (except for the olive oil) to a large mixing bowl and mix/stir with hands or large fork until well combined.
  • Form the mixture into 4 patties and set aside
  • Add the olive oil to a large pan and turn heat to medium-high heat
  • Once oil is hot, add each salmon burger to the pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side or until a golden brown crust forms. Remove from heat and set aside while preparing the sauce.

For the Caper & Dill Cream Sauce

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir until well combined
  • Adjust salt/pepper to taste

To Serve
