  • 1 ½ lbs skinless wild Alaskan salmon fillet
  • 3 scallions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice plus 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha or other hot sauce
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Dill Yogurt Sauce:

  • ¾ cup plain reduced fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh, chopped dill
  • Salt and pepper


  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 6 multigrain hamburger buns or bread, toasted
  • Assorted toppings like sliced avocado, tomato or baby spinach


  • Finely dice half of the salmon into pieces about ¼-inch in size. Cut the remainder of the salmon roughly into chunks and place them in a food processor. Pulse until a paste forms. Transfer the paste to a large bowl and add the diced salmon, scallions, mustard, mayonnaise, Old Bay, lemon juice, zest, breadcrumbs, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Gently mix the ingredients together until combined. Form the mixture into 6 equal patties. Refrigerate the burgers for 15 minutes to firm up before cooking.
  • To make the sauce, mix the yogurt, mustard, lemon juice, and dill together in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Spray a large nonstick or cast iron skillet with olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Add the burgers (working in batches if needed) and cook 3-4 minutes until browned on the bottom. Flip the burgers over and cook an additional 3-4 minutes until cooked through. Serve the burgers on toasted buns with dill yogurt sauce and desired toppings.
