Wasabi Salmon Burger Wraps

We had some leftover salmon from the other night. I wanted to use it up, but I am very bad about using leftovers. I just don’t like them. Salmon is one thing that I do use though. I usually like to turn it in to a salmon salad the next day. This time around though, I decided to turn it in to some salmon burgers. Similar to my baked salmon patties, you can use either recently cooked salmon or even some canned salmon. Both will work, but I always prefer to use fresh salmon when possible.

This salmon burger comes together in a similar way as the salmon patties, but the flavors are amped up a bit with the addition of the wasabi and ginger.

I mashed up my leftover fresh salmon in a bowl. You can use canned salmon if you don’t have fresh salmon lying around. To the salmon, add an egg, some wasabi, soy sauce, sesame soil, ginger, garlic, corn flake crumbs, chopped shallots. You mix it together and form in to burgers.

Fry the burgers in a large pan.

  3. I love to use leftovers and am always looking for new ways, especially for salmon, which I make very often. These look great: an updated version of my mother and grandma’s salmon latkes!

  4. Leftovers can be rough sometimes, but you would never know that these came from them! Looks great.

    Lovin the use of leftovers!

  6. I love recipes like this, I hate having leftover fish, so this is perfect. I could see making extra salmon just to make these.

  7. Not a huge salmon fan, but with wasabi, I’ll eat anything.

    What a perfect shabbat lunch idea!! I’m adding it to my list.

    It’s so funny because one of the only leftovers that I DON’T like to repurpose is salmon. I just find that it gets so fishy. I have found though that adding lots of lemon and lemon zest into whatever I’m making (like a salmon pasta salad) helps to mask the fishy flavor. I have to admit that these patties look amazing, and it sure beats using canned salmon!

    Your salmon burgers look really good and we love the addition of the Asian condiments!

  11. Now this is my kinda dish… I’m been craving burgers and salmon… what a great combo. Kick it up with the wasabi! Way to go!
