Darling Sister:

Apparently, Thing-In-A-Bun is my go-to for a quick low-energy dinner. I think I tell myself there’s no need for a side dish, it’s easily eaten out on the patio, and it usually comes together fast. The other night, I made salmon burgers, a popular favorite around here, and thought of you! You’ll love the tangy, yogurt-dill sauce that goes with this Thing-In-A-Bun!



Salmon Burgers

Makes 4; Adapted from Martha Stewart, Queen of Everything.

In a bowl, mix together:

  • 1 pound of skinless salmon, diced into 1/4″ – 1/2″ cubes
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup panko (plus more if your mix seems too watery when it’s time to portion them)
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon (or more!) dried or fresh dill
  • Zest and juice of half a lemon
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin
  • Salt and Pepper – just a bit of each

Stir ingredients well to combine. Let rest while you prepare a baking sheet with foil and oil. Butter the cut side of four hamburger buns and toast them lightly under the broiler. Using a biscuit cutter as a guide, spoon the salmon mixture into four patties on the prepared baking sheet, packing the mix down with your spoon to form a tight patty. Broil, turning once, until cooked through and just browning along the edges, about 3-4 minutes per side.


Prepare the topping by mixing together:

  • 1 cup plain yogurt (just a little single serving size works great here!)
  • Zest and juice of half a lemon
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon dried or fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon horseradish
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Top your burgers, pull together a salad from the back of the fridge, and treat yourself!
