Salmon burgers/Sliders

Salmon Burgers by Ezra Pound Cake.

I have made a variety of salmon burger recipes, but this one is my  new favorite. For those of you that don’t know much about me…I have NEVER purchased canned salmon. Being raised in the Seattle area, the only canned fish we ever ate was tuna fish. Since moving to Colorado 13 years ago, my husband Brian has always found a reason to get up to Alaska at least every other year to fill our freezer with salmon and halibut. So, whenever a recipe calls for canned salmon, I just pull a piece of salmon out of the freezer and bake it up! If you want to make sliders, you just make the patties smaller. Enjoy!

Alaska Salmon burgers
1 – 15 ½ oz can unsalted pink salmon, drained, skin removed
½ cup celery, finely chopped
½ cup dry bread crumbs
¼ cup lite mayonnaise
1 egg, beaten

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

2. Form into patties
