Seafood in the Midwest: Salmon Burgers

As you can imagine, seafood is a bit hard to come by out here in the good ol’ midwest. Most every fish I find is frozen or canned, and finding anything wild caught provides a challenge. There have been a few occasions where I’ve turned to the frozen varieties, and they will suffice when I’m really desperate for a fish fix, but in general, our seafood consumption has drastically dropped since moving here.

I did happen to find that Sam’s Club carries canned wild caught pink salmon. So of course I bought two four packs to try out. I have been looking for a good source of protein to have as my lunch, and these babies pack 91 grams per can!
However, after a few weeks of making my office mates suffer through my fishy smelling lunch of salmon salad (although it was delicious!), I tried to think of another way to use my salmon so it wouldn’t stink up the office.
*Please ignore the “well-used” baking pan.

Here enters the salmon burgers…patties…whatever you want to call them 🙂

These are great over salad, roasted veggies, in a bun, anyway you like them!
