  • ½ cup (75g) red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ⅛ tsp. salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp. fresh dill, chopped
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • ½ cup (60g) panko crumbs
  • 1 egg

Burger Toppings:

  • 8 pieces of green leaf lettuce
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 small red onion

Yogurt Dill Sauce:

  • 1 cup (245g) plain full fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. fresh dill, chopped
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Sweet Potato Fries:

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. pepper


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).  Season the salmon fillets with a little salt and pepper and place onto a baking tray with parchment paper.

Step 2

Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into fries, try to make them of equal size to ensure an even bake. Place the sweet potatoes onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Step 3

Place the salmon on the top rack of the oven and the sweet potato fries on the middle rack and bake for 15 minutes. While the salmon is cooking, slice the tomato and half a red onion for the burger toppings. Also rinse 8 lettuce leaves. Set aside on a serving tray.

Step 4

Place a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and sauté the onions, red bell pepper and garlic for 3 minutes. Then transfer to a large mixing bowl.

Step 5

Add the egg, panko crumbs, dill, lemon, salt and pepper to the bowl and mix. Remove salmon from the oven and set it aside to cool for 5 minutes. 

Step 6

Stir the sweet potato fries and pop the tray back into the oven to cook for another 5-10 minutes after this time turn off the oven to keep them warm.  While the salmon is cooling, make the sauce by adding yogurt, dill, lemon juice, onion powder, and spices to a bowl and mixing well to combine.

Step 7

Once the salmon has cooled, remove the skin and flake the salmon into smaller pieces. Add the flaked salmon to a bowl along with the panko breadcrumbs, egg, and onion mixture. Mix well to combine, breaking up any clumps. Form this mixture into 4 salmon patties. Ensure to press them firmly or they will split.  

Step 8

Quickly rinse the pan used to cook the onion mixture. Spray lightly with oil and then place the patties in the pan and cook on each side for approximately 4 minutes, or until golden brown.

Step 9

To assemble, place a piece of green lettuce on the plate. Top with salmon burger patty, sauce, tomato and then the onion. Top with another piece of lettuce. Using a knife and fork is the easiest way to eat these burgers.
