If you’ve been around this site, you know I am absolutely over the moon crazy about salmon. My biggest source for protein these days is fish and seafood…I find it sits very well with my digestive system and I love that it is rich in omega-3 fats. Salmon is hands down my favorite!

WELL.

Copper River Salmon graciously sent me a couple gorgeous sockeye salmon fillets, freshly caught by local fishermen. Many moons ago, I visited the folks at Copper River Salmon in Cordova, Alaska. If you aren’t a long-time follower and would like to read more about my trip to Cordova, feel free to read Part One and Part Two of my trip recap.

The main bullet point is it is important to know where your animal protein comes from, and in my experience, the best tasting salmon comes from Cordova, Alaska. It is caught sustainably by local fishermen on the Copper River and Prince William Sound. The community takes great pride in respecting the waterways and surrounding environment. The commitment to sustainability in unparalleled.

Suffice it to say, the sockeye salmon the folks at Copper River sent me was absolutely fantastic!

One of my favorite ways to prepare sockeye salmon is to make salmon burgers out of it. You’ve seen this before in my Asian Salmon Burgers post. I thought I would revisit the subject with an even easier recipe for baked salmon burgers, as I had previously been pan-frying them. While the pan-fried version is absolutely delicious, sometimes I enjoy the cleaner approach to baking.

Let’s get after it, shall we?

How to Make Baked Salmon Burgers:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Begin by removing the skin from the salmon. Take a sharp knife and run it between the skin and the flesh to carefully cut off the skin. Chop the salmon into chunks and transfer it to a food processor.

Add the remaining ingredients for the burgers and process until a thick paste forms.

Form 3 (⅓-pound) patties out of the salmon mixture and place on the baking sheet.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes, flipping after 10 minutes. 

Serve with your favorite burger toppings! I like doing a lettuce bun with tomato, mashed avocado and mustard.

    We occasionally get Copper River salmon at Village Market, a specialty butcher that gets wonderful cuts of meat. It is the best tasting salmon I have ever had. Knowing a little about the fishermen there makes it all the more meaningful. It’s hard to find the time to source your food, let alone know something of the people who are harvesting your food. It’s wonderful that you met the fishermen and had the experience going out with them. Thank you for the recipe! It looks delicious.
