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.

Copper River Salmon graciously sent me a couple gorgeous wild-caught sockeye salmon fillets, freshly caught by local fishermen. Many moons ago, I visited the folks at Copper River Salmon in Cordova, Alaska. Read Part One and Part Two of my trip recap.

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.

You can serve these on my Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns (Yeast-Free!) or my Gluten-Free Rice Buns.
