Salmon burgers with avocado yogurt is a tasty and healthy recipe that can made in a skillet or air fryer.
As if the salmon burgers weren’t yummy enough, we are also making an avocado sauce that really takes the dish to a whole new level.
And if you are doing a low carb thing, simply have your burger with the yogurt sauce for dipping.
How to make salmon burgers with avocado yogurt
Cut a pound of salmon into 2 inch pieces.
Then put them in a food processor and pulse a few times so the salmon comes together but is not completely smooth.
If your salmon has skin, simply remove the skin before this step.
Put the ground up salmon in a bowl and gather your other ingredients.
Add some bread crumbs, green onions or chopped cilantro, garlic, an egg, kosher salt, pepper, and a seasoning blend of choice.
I have lots of favorite seasoning blends, but I had to go with Old Bay for these since it pairs well with seafood.
Gently mix together with your hands and form into four burger patties.
Carefully place the delicate salmon burgers in the Air Fryer or cook them in a skillet.
I went with the Air Fryer… all I had to do was set it to 380 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
While the salmon burgers are cooking, make the avocado yogurt.
Put a 5 ounce container of plain Greek yogurt, an avocado, lime juice, kosher salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender.
Just blend until smooth and your sauce is good to go!
The Air Fryer makes cooking these burgers so easy and they look extra amazing.
But if you choose to cook them in a skillet, do so over medium heat with a little olive oil for 3 to 5 minutes per side.
Salmon burgers with avocado yogurt sure is a great and healthy way to mix up burger night at home!
