Cajun Salmon Burgers

Cajun Salmon Burgers from The Little Green Spoon

These are so satisfying. The blend of spices is insanely yum and the zesty lime takes to salmon so perfectly. These quickly became a weekly occurrence in my house and once you try them you’ll know why.

For how many? Makes 6


  • 1/2 large onion
  • 400 g (14 oz) fresh salmon
  • 1 egg
  • 30 g (1 oz/¼ cup) ground almonds
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 lime, juice, plus extra to serve
  • coconut oil, for frying
  • iceberg lettuce, to serve
  • coarse salt


Chop the onion and salmon fillets into a few big chunks and add them to your food processor. Add in the egg, ground almonds, all of the spices, salt and lime juice too.

Pulse it a few times until everything is broken up and comes together. It should be a bit mushy, but still have some chunks (don’t overblend).

Lay out a sheet of parchment paper on the counter and then wet your hands. Use your damp hands to shape the mixture into patties, laying them out on the parchment paper.

Heat a pan on a high heat and add a little coconut oil. When it’s hot, add the burgers and cook for 4–5 minutes on each side.

Serve wrapped in fresh crunchy iceberg leaves with a generous squeeze of extra lime.
