I love salmon. I cook Keto Meals with it multiple times a week. It is a great way to get some protein and healthy fats. I also love that salmon fills me up with out making me feel like I ate too much.
Keto Salmon Burgers are one of my favorites, but I’ve found that I like making them at home better than ordering them out at a restaurant. This way, I can add extra seasoning and things like Chive Aioli to keep the burger from being too bland or dry.
This Delish Salmon Burger Recipe comes from my cookbook, The Big Book of Keto. At first glance, it looks like a lot of ingredients, but I promise it’s actually really simple. Most everything just goes into one big bowl and you mix it with your hands.
Salmon Burgers with Chive Aioli and Greens
1/4 cup pork rinds
12 ounces ground salmon*
1 bunch scallions, sliced,
green parts only
1 tablespoon capers
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon cooking oil or ghee
6 ounces mixed greens
1 tablespoon MCT oil, divided
2 tablespoons avocado
Chopped fresh chives, for garnish
In a food processor, pulse the pork rinds until they are a crumble-y consistency.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the salmon, scallions, capers, horseradish, Dijon, and pork rinds. Season with salt and pepper.
Mix with your hands and create two 1-inch-thick burgers. Transfer the burgers to a plate and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Heat a skillet or grill pan on medium heat. Add the cooking oil, and once it is simmering, add the burgers.
Cook on each side for 4 to 5 minutes, flipping once.
Divide the greens between two plates and toss with the MCT oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Place the cooked burgers on top of the greens and top them with the mayonnaise and a sprinkle of chives.
