What's This?
Serving size 4
Total Time


1 lb wild salmon fillet, skimmed (see tip)2 Tbsp finely chopped red onion or scallion2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro½ tsp finely chopped peeled fresh ginger¼ tsp kosher or sea salt⅛ tsp freshly ground pepper1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil4 Tbsp green goddess sauce (recipe below)


1. With a large chef's knife, chop salmon using quick, even, straight-up-and-down motions (do not rock the knife through the fish or it will turn mushy) until you have a mass of roughly 1/4-inch pieces. Transfer to large bowl and gently stir in onion (or scallion), cilantro, ginger, salt and pepper, being careful not to overmix. Divide the mixture into 4 patties, about 1 inch thick. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes (or up to 2 hours) before cooking.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the burgers and cook until browned on both sides and just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes total. Serve with 1 tablespoon Green Goddess Sauce each.


Tip: Place salmon fillet on a clean cutting board, skin side down. Starting at the tail end, slip the blade of a long, sharp knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding the skin down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30° angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.
