Salmon Burger with Baby Spinach


For a flavorful spread for this easy-to-make burger, mix some mayonnaise with chopped fresh tarragon or minced shallot.


  • 2 hamburger buns

  • 1 can (7.5 ounces) salmon, drained and flaked

  • ½ celery stalk, finely chopped (2 tablespoons)

  • ½ shallot, finely chopped (1 tablespoon)

  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, plus more for serving

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • Baby spinach, for serving


  1. In a food processor, pulse 1 bun until fine crumbs form (you should have about 1/4 cup). Transfer breadcrumbs to a large bowl and add salmon, celery, shallot, and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper; mix well to combine. Form into a 3/4-inch-thick patty, transfer to a plate, and refrigerate 10 minutes.

  2. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium. Add patty and cook, flipping once, until browned and heated through, about 8 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, split and toast remaining bun. Serve burger on bun with mayonnaise and spinach.
