“I have loved corsets since I was small. When I was a child, my grandmother took me to an exhibition and they had a corset on display. I loved the flesh color, the salmon satin, the lace.”

– Jean Paul Gaultier, Designer

Bake for 15 minutes, until the burgers are cooked and lightly browned. Serve with your favorite accompaniments.

How To Cook A Salmon Burger On The Stove

To cook a salmon burger on the stove, combine ingredients like cooked or canned salmon, an egg, breadcrumbs [2], and seasonings of your choice in a bowl. 

Form the mixture into patties and set aside. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, and add a generous amount of cooking oil. 

Place the salmon patties in the skillet and cook for 4-6 minutes per side or until the burgers are golden brown and cooked through. 

Serve your salmon burgers with a delicious side like roasted potatoes or a salad.

How To Cook Premade Salmon Burgers

To cook premade salmon burgers, preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the burgers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 12-15 minutes, flipping them once halfway through. 

When the burgers are cooked through, remove them from the oven and serve with your favorite condiments and sides. 

What Are The Topping Options?

  1. Avocado Slices: The creamy and slightly nutty flavor of avocado pairs perfectly with salmon’s rich and savory taste. 
  2. Sauteed Mushrooms: Sauteed mushrooms provide a savory, earthy flavor that complements the smoky taste of a salmon burger. 
  3. Capers: Capers add a salty, briny flavor to a salmon burger, which helps balance out the salmon’s richness. 
  4. Lime Mayo: Lime mayo is a great way to add a tangy, citrusy flavor to a salmon burger. 
  5. Onion Relish: Onion relish adds a sweet, tangy flavor that pairs perfectly with the smokiness of a salmon burger.

How Do You Know When Salmon Burgers Are Done?

Salmon burgers are done when the internal temperature reaches 145°F. To ensure they are done, insert an instant-read thermometer into the thickest part of the burger. 

You can also tell when salmon burgers are done when they are golden brown on the outside and the center of the burger is opaque and cooked through. 

When you press on the center of the burger, it should feel firm and not mushy.

Do You Cook Them Frozen?

Cooking salmon burgers from frozen is a great option when you’re short on time. Frozen burgers are easy to prepare, requiring no thawing and only minimal preparation. 

Preheat a skillet over medium heat to cook frozen salmon burgers and lightly grease it with cooking oil or butter. Place the frozen burgers on the pan, cover, and cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping at the halfway mark. 

Once the burgers are cooked, serve them on buns with your favorite condiments.
