Potato Salmon Dill Burgers

Salmon is one of my favorite fish I think because it’s so versatile. I have made Crab-Stuffed Salmon Pinwheels with a Garlic Cream Sauce, Maple Balsamic Salmon with Pear and Pecans, Bacon-Wrapped Mini Salmon Cakes with Asparagus appetizer, and Seafood Cakes in Coconut Oil. It works with sweet flavors and it’s hearty enough to stand up as a meat in this burger. I used a baked potato in this recipe because I needed a strong binder with a palette plain enough to let the salmon and dill flavors shine through. I know a lot of my “paleo” readers don’t eat white potatoes and though I rarely do myself, if I’m going to have a small amount of carbs I’d rather it come from a real food, rather than a cracker or chip (Actually I’d eat myself stupid if left to my own devices with chips even though I know I’m not SUPPOSED to). I baked these on parchment paper, flipping them over halfway through to ensure equal browning. I served them with my homemade tzatziki. These were great just on a plate, but you could serve them as an actual burger in a lettuce wrap.

    They look absolutely beautiful – can’t wait to try making them! Wonder if they’d work well with sweet potatoes?

    I’m sure they would work with sweet potatoes and I bet it would be a great flavor. Let me know if you try them!

    I have made these twice and they are delicious. I know they technically aren’t Paleo but I enjoy them as a cheat, certainly better than some things out there. Thanks for the recipe!
