2 cans (142 g each) Clover Leaf® Flaked Sockeye Salmon - Skin & Bones Removed, drained
1 large fresh egg, slightly beaten
½ cup (125 mL) chopped onion
½ cup (125 mL) diced green bell pepper
½ cup (125 mL) fresh whole wheat bread crumbs
1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
1 tsp (5 mL) grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dry rosemary, crushed
pinch ground black pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
4 hamburger buns, toasted
Condiments, dill pickle, lettuce, tomato and/or red onion (optional)


  1. Combine salmon, egg, onion, bell pepper, bread crumbs, lemon juice, lemon peel, rosemary and black pepper.
  2. Form mixture into 4 burgers. Chill for at least 1/2 hour to set.
  3. Heat the oil in a large, nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add the burgers without crowding the pan. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Transfer burgers to toasted buns and top with your favorite condiments, pickle, lettuce, tomato and red onion, as desired.

To grill the burgers, preheat the grill to medium and grease well. Place burgers on the grill and cook for 3 minutes per side or until lightly browned.
Clover Leaf® offers Skinless Boneless Atlantic Salmon and Skinless Boneless Pink Salmon, as well.
