Kim’s Delicious Wasabi Salmon Burgers

Salmon burgers but not just salmon burgers!  Last night Kimber decided to get a little crazy with the culinary arts.  She found a recipe on the Internet for Wasabi Salmon burgers and whipped some up.

Wasabi PlantMy kids are quite picky when it comes to what form of salmon they ingest.  Ok, they don’t care for it.  There I said it, as much as that kills me to say.  Every once in a while though, we are able to get them to enjoy a little something that is mainly salmon meat.

They do however enjoy Salmon Tacos of which I will delve into some other day.  Today I’m talking Wasabi Salmon Burgers. They were so delicious.

Wasabi Salmon BurgersI had them for dinner then took them for lunch today.  And, I was hoping that she would make more this evening, but I won’t hold my breath.  She says she has something else Salmon themed planned tonight.  I will let you know how that goes.  So, here is the Recipe:  Let me know what you think about it. My wife said she would make notes below and that you can call her if you have any questions.

Recipe for Washabi Salmon Burgers




  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 teaspoons wasabi powder -Asian aisle an supermarket
  • 2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 lb Salmon fillet, skinned and baked/poached  NOTE: I used 2 cans of canned Silver salmon
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons minced peeled ginger  NOTE: I don’t like Ginger so I skipped this, your call
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil


1. Mix Soy, Wasabi and honey together until smooth and set aside.

2.  Flake Salmon into a large bowl with egg, green onions and sesame oil and ginger if you like ginger, then mix well.

3. Heat up a couple tablespoons of Olive oil then hand form the Salmon into patties and fry about 4 minutes on each side until done.  Once you think they are done, flip one more time and drizzle with the Wasabi mixture and let cook for another minute or so.  On my second round of patties I drizzled the wasabi sauce on both sides for a little bit more spice.

That’s it for my Washabi Salmon Burgers.  The recipe called for a hamburger bun but I put the patties into a Pita bread and threw some Pico and Lettuce in there and folded it up.  They were amazing.  Also, pretty sure you can make these with any type of fish and eat them with or without the Pita.
