Salmon Burgers {gf,df}

Updated: Mar 14, 2021

Talk about a summer night... these salmon burgers are perfect for warm nights out of the deck, with all the goods, of course! I love air fryer salmon, but sometimes you've got to change it up. These burgers are super juicy, and they're packed with nutrient dense ingredients, such Atlantic salmon, spinach, flaxseed meal, nutritional yeast, and tahini! I love throwing these over fresh greens and a side of sweet potato fries. For this recipe, I air fried the salmon first, then I made the patties, and finally baked them in a cast iron skillet. It may sound like a lot, but I promise it's worth it, and can all be thrown together in 35 minutes. These are gluten free and dairy free burgers!
