Chipotle Salmon Burgers with Lemon Chive Mayo

Chipotle Salmon Burgers

When I returned home from Seattle last June, I immediately wanted to recreate the amazing Salmon Burger that I had had from the Rub with Love Shack. Although that burger was absolutely perfect, this adaptation was pretty darn good too. In fact, it has become a bi-weekly part of our menu. Because I love chipotle so much, I decided to add this to the burgers for some smokey heat. I purchase the small cans of Chipotle in Adobo Sauce. If you have the time, I highly suggest you make the mayonnaise homemade. It is utterly delicious and does not even compare to the jarred stuff! Hopefully you all will enjoy it as much as we do!

  1. This looks so delish! Making me hungry :)

  2. Your salmon burgers sound terrific.

  3. These look and sound amazing! However, I have a quick question. When you say, ‘That burger was anything but perfect”, to me that sounds like you did not enjoy it, or there was something wrong with it. Am I misreading? Sorry to bother, but just wanted to be clear because I’d like to make these if you think they are worth it! Thanks :)

  4. I don’t even eat seafood and this has me craving this burger!

  6. Dear SeaSide Baker, Have you tried this recipe with any other type of fish I am curious as to how well Tilapia would do, my husband loves Tilapia so I wonder how well it would work. Sounds delicious may try it your way first!

  7. Quick question: for the salmon filets they are not pre-cooked correct? The cooking for them will come in skillet? (just to clarify)

  8. This looks so yummy! Do you reckon they can be frozen before they are cooked?

  13. Do you think this would this work with canned salmon? That’s all I have on hand right now because we go through fresh salmon so fast!
