  • Nonstick vegetable cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions, white and green parts only
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 pound skinless wild salmon fillets, bones removed, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 English muffins, toasted
  • Sliced Vidalia onion, for serving (optional)
  • Sweet red pepper relish, for serving (optional)
  • Wasabi mayonnaise, for serving (optional)
  • Ketchup, for serving (optional)


  1. Spray a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add the scallions and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high. Add the lemon juice and cook until almost all liquid evaporates, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool.

  2. Place salmon in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground. Add to scallions. Mix in the egg, dill, salt, and pepper. Form into 4 equal patties.

  3. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Cook patties until golden brown and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Serve on English muffins with desired toppings.
