Salmon Burgers with Roasted Veggies


I live in South Dakota. The closest ocean to me is 1500 miles away. When I buy seafood, it's always really expensive, and I'm always wary about it. When I buy salmon, I buy it at Costco. It's fresh, it's decent quality, and it's a fair price. However, they sell it in such large batches, that when I buy salmon, I end up eating salmon all week long and have to come up with creative ways too cook it so I don't get sick of it. Here's one of those creative ways.

  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives, chopped

Add salmon to food processor and pulse 5 times. Add onion, 1 tbsp dill, 1/2 tsp honey, salt, and pepper to food processor and pulse to combine. Form four patties.

Meanwhile, mix yogurt, dijon, 1 tbsp dill, chives, and 1 1/2 tsp honey. Set aside. 

Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add patties and cook for 4 minutes on each side.
