This better-for-you-burger uses tinned salmon to make delicious and nutritious patties seasoned with capers and mustard. In lieu of a bun, tender chard leaves provide a healthy wrap.


  • 3 (6-ounce) tins of canned wild salmon

  • 1 tablespoon capers

  • 1 tablespoon coarse-grain mustard

  • ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs

  • 1 large egg

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 bunch rainbow chard, stems removed


  1. Drain salmon; toss in a bowl with capers, mustard, breadcrumbs, egg, salt, and pepper. Firmly press into 4 patties, each 3/4 inch thick. Heat 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium.

  2. Add patties and cook, flipping once, until golden and warmed through, 7 to 8 minutes. Bring a medium pot of water to a simmer. Lower several chard leaves into simmering water until blanched, a few minutes; drain and pat dry. Serve patties wrapped in chard, with more mustard.
