Air Fryer Salmon Avocado Burgers

Air Fryer Salmon Avocado Burgers

Salmon and avocado are two superfoods that bring so much nutrition, so I am combining them into a recipe for Air Fryer Salmon Avocado Burgers.

I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier, but not willing to sacrifice all the yumminess.

These are proof that eating healthy does not have to be boring.

The bun for me was a must, but for an even healthier version these would be fantastic by themselves or in a low carb wrap.

Or even served as a lettuce wrap 🙂

How to Make Air Fryer Salmon Avocado Burgers

Start with a pound of salmon, with the skin removed, in the food processor.

I cut mine into chunks to help the food processor not to over mix these.

Just a few pulses is all you need.

Still some texture and not completely blended is the goal.

Put the salmon in a bowl and add a beaten egg, some garlic paste or minced garlic, and 1/4 cup bread crumbs.

For the seasoning I went with kosher salt, pepper, and an all purpose seasoning.

Any all purpose seasoning, or even Old Bay would be perfect.

Now that everyone is in the bowl, simply mix with your hands.

Be gentle, as overmixing may create a tougher and less delicate burger.

Once the salmon burgers are mixed, add a diced avocado and gently form this into four burger patties.

They are delicate, so I recommend placing them right into the air fryer basket.

Once they are in the basket, set the air fryer to 380 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.

No need to flip or fuss with them at all 🙂

They get a nice golden color and slightly charred edges.

I had the best luck removing them with a spatula.

I am serving these burgers on these brioche buns.

But as I said earlier, a low carb wrap or lettuce wrap works too!

I added spicy mayo and lettuce to my Air Fryer Salmon Avocado Burgers!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound salmon skin removed
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 Tbsp garlic paste or minced garlic
  • kosher salt, pepper, seasoning blend of choice
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 4 burger buns
  • Optional toppings: mayo or spicy mayo, lettuce or slaw, pickled red onions.

Instructions

  1. Cut the skinless salmon into 2 inch pieces and put them in a food processor and pulse a few times so the salmon comes together but is not completely smooth.

  2. Move the salmon to a bowl and add the breadcrumbs, egg, garlic, kosher salt, pepper, and seasoning blend of choice in a bowl. Combine with your hands, then gently fold in the diced avocado and form 4 burger patties. place each in the air fryer basket.

    Note: It's normal for the patties to be delicate, so putting right in air fryer is highly suggested so you don't have to move them again.

  4. Serve the salmon burgers on buns with optional toppings such as mayo or spicy mayo, lettuce or slaw, pickled red onions.
