Take a break from your traditional beef burgers with this healthy option featuring flaky salmon patties placed between slices of warm, crusty challah buns.


Makes 4 to 6 servings

Recipe from

Coastal Living


1 slice white bread
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh dill or thyme, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Soak bread in milk until soft.

Coarsely chop salmon, and place in a food processor. Pulse several times until roughly chopped. Add bread and milk, salt, and next 3 ingredients. Pulse several times until well blended.

Form salmon mixture into 4 to 6 patties, and place on a lightly oiled plate. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to cook.

Grill burgers over medium-hot coals (or on a grill pan over medium-high heat) 3 to 5 minutes or until done. Serve on Lemon-scented Challah Buns with Sour Cream-Dill Sauce.
