Rich delicate salmon is combined with horseradish, lemon, and seasonings, then topped with a refreshing tangy yogurt-dill sauce to create these hearty, yet light salmon burgers. Super easy and delicious!
Think salmon is only good for fancy meals? Think again. Finely diced and combined with lemon, scallions, and horseradish, it is perfect served on a bun. Broiling them creates a yummy brown crust without added fat.
My favorite part is that the fish isn’t mashed or ground up like you usually find in salmon burgers.
No wait. My favorite part is the Greek yogurt, which adds some tanginess.
Um. Hold on. My favorite part is that these are so easy to prepare and on the table in less than 30.
You know what? It’s all good.
