Ready Time

30 mins


6 servings


  • For the Grilled Salmon Burgers:
  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet, skin removed
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • For the Mango Salsa:
  • 3 ripe mangos, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Finely chop the salmon fillet into small pieces and place them in a medium-sized bowl.

Add the panko breadcrumbs, olive oil, lime juice, dill, salt, and black pepper to the bowl with the salmon.

Using your hands or a spoon, gently mix everything until just combined.

Be careful not to overmix.

Divide the salmon mixture into 6 equal portions and shape each portion into a round patty.

Place the patties onto a plate or tray, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.

While the salmon patties are chilling, prepare the mango salsa.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the diced mango, red onion, jalapeño pepper, and chopped cilantro.

Squeeze the lime juice over the top and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Mix everything together gently and refrigerate until ready to use.

Remove the salmon patties from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before grilling.

Grill the patties for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until they’re cooked through and slightly charred.

Once the salmon patties are cooked, assemble the burgers by spreading a layer of mango salsa on the bottom bun, followed by a salmon patty, and finishing with the top bun.

Serve immediately and enjoy!


Use fresh salmon for the best flavor and texture. Make sure to pat the salmon dry with a paper towel before chopping to remove excess moisture.

Don’t overmix the salmon mixture, as it can become dense and lose its delicate flavor.

Stop mixing once the ingredients are just combined. To ensure the salmon patties hold their shape, make sure they’re chilled for at least 30 minutes.

You can also make them ahead of time and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.

For the mango salsa, use ripe but firm mangos for the best flavor and texture. If the mangos are too ripe, they’ll be too soft and mushy.

Don’t overcrowd the grill with too many salmon patties at once.

Grill in batches if necessary, to ensure each patty has enough room to cook evenly. Grill the salmon patties over medium-high heat to get a nice sear on the outside while staying tender on the inside.

Assemble the burgers just before serving to ensure the mango salsa stays fresh and the buns stay crispy.

You can toast the buns on the grill or in a toaster for a crispy texture before assembling the burgers. Leftover mango salsa is great on its own with tortilla chips or as a topping for grilled chicken or fish!
