Whole30 Salmon Burger

Whole30 Salmon Burger


  • 1 Lb salmon, skinned and boned
  • ¾ cup celery, diced small
  • ¾ cup onion, diced small
  • ½ red pepper, diced small
  • ¼ cup chives, minced
  • ¼ t sea salt
  • 2 t Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 egg-mixed well, no strands remaining
  • almond meal, enough for dusting
  • Olive oil for sautéing
  • Tartar Sauce MAGIC ELIXIRS™(recipe here)
  1. Put salmon in food processor and blitz for only 2 seconds as you do not want to macerate the salmon. I like to have some texture.
  2. Place in a bowl and add the celery, onion, red pepper and chives. Mix well and season with salt and Old Bay. Can sit overnight in refrigerator before going further.
  3. When ready to cook, mix in the egg. Make patties about 5 oz. Put some of the almond meal on a plate. Place patties onto almond meal mixture and gently turn over, then repeat.
  4. Sauté in oil that’s medium hot until done—2-3 minutes a side for small patties, 4-5 minutes a side for large.

  1. I just discovered you through the whole 30…love everything about your recipes and love your stories! Can’t wait to make this…on the menu for the week end. You ar really inspiring me to eat healthy! Thank you

  2. Think you could freeze frozen patties and reheat??

    1. Hi Jill. I would say no. This is a fresh salmon burger. If you wanted to do that, I would suggest a chicken burger. We have a wonderful smoky paprika chicken burger here on the blog. https://nocrumbsleft.net/2016/05/20/smoky-chicken-burgers/

  3. Canyou use coconut flour if you dont have the almond meal?

  4. I made these salmon patties last night and they were wonderful! From start to finish it took me a total of thirty minutes. I will never eat salmon from a can again. I discovered you from Whole30 and your recipes are wonderful. I also tried the chicken stew and that didn’t last. Red pepper paste is worth the five minute prep time and I cooked it overnight. Next… chicken breast and the whole chicken.

    Thank you,

    How many burgers does this make Terri? Making it today 🙂

  6. Is there a way to make this with canned salmon?

    1. no..that would be a different recipe

  7. Dumb question…is the salmon raw or cooked?

  8. Hi Terri! These look delicious, I cannot wait to try! Do you have any suggestions for a replacement for the old bay seasoning? I could not find it at my local store. I was able to look up online what is in it, but seems like a lot of spices. I may just experiment with some of the spices I have, unless you have a suggestion. Thanks!

    1. Most grocery stores have it. It’s totally worth it! It lasts you forever and is worth the energy! You’ve reminded me that i need more, so i will also be ordering today!

  9. I made these tonight. They were delicious!

    1. Thank you so much! They’re some of our favorites!
