Salmon is one of the most nutritious-powerhouse foods ever! Salmon is rich in healthy fats, protein, B vitamins, potassium, selenium and antioxidants. Salmon also reduces inflammation, blood pressure, risks for heart disease and protects your heart. Consuming at least two servings per week can help you benefit from salmon’s nutrition powers! These salmon burgers are easy to make, tasty and extremely satisfying. We eat our burgers on a bed of fresh greens, sliced avocados on top and a dash of turmeric. This recipe is TKM APPROVED!

  • 1 ½ lb. salmon fillet (skin removed) – cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped into tiny pieces

  • 4 scallions, sliced as thinly as possible  

  • ½ cup chopped finely fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

  • dash cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil for skillet

  • organic watercress and arugula for bed of greens

  • sliced avocado for topping

  • dash turmeric to splash on avocado


  1. Place the salmon cubes into the freezer for around 10 minutes until chilled (but not frozen.)

  2. Transfer the salmon to a food processor and pulse until salmon is just finely chopped. Make sure not to over pulse to a paste. Aim for around ten 1-second pulses. Pour salmon mixture to a bowl.

  3. In the same food processor, add in the remaining ingredients and pulse until smooth. Add this smooth mix to the salmon in your large bowl.

  4. Use your very clean hands to completely mix the mixtures together. Form the salmon mixture into 6 patties.

  5. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the patties and cook until just browned (about 3-4 minutes per side.)

  6. On your plate: arrange 2-3 cups cleaned, organic watercress and arugula as your “bowl” for your salmon burger. Slice some avocado as your topping with a dash of turmeric.
