Salmon Burgers with rich Yogurt Sauce

Updated on September 23, 2011

Salmon with Rich Yogurt Sauce, Avocado Dressing made with Rich Yogurt

We eat a lot of salmon in our home. It is very tasty with the added benefits of being very good for you. Although, salmon is good when simply grilled, we are always interested in new ways to make salmon.

Some years ago we were visiting family in Kotzebue Alaska. Kotzebue is 23 miles above the Arctic Circle and well beyond the climate zone of where trees grow! It was in August and the native Inupiaq people were bringing in their salmon harvests down at the beach. We walked to the beach and purchased a 4’ long salmon for $6.00! Isn’t that nearly unbelievable? Well, my husband’s sister, Jackie, was very upset at how much we were charged for the salmon! We told her that in Phoenix we were paying $15.00 a pound for fresh salmon.

I also remember Jackie filleting the fish while her cat, James Bond, circled the whole event with just one thought on his kitty mind, “I’m gonna get me some of that!”

Salmon is healthy for you in many ways. It is considered a smart for your heart food. Many cultures include fish and salmon as a part of their normal diet. Salmon is high many essential vitamins including vitamins E, C, D, and E. Alaskan seafood is also rich in minerals like iron, calcium, and zinc. There are even studies that report salmon will strengthen the immune system. Salmon is extremely high in Omega-3 oils and studies say that this will greatly reduce the risk of coronary disease.

As you can tell there are many reasons to eat salmon. But I would be remiss if I did not urge you to consume salmon that is 100% natural and sustainable. Salmon that is harvested by responsible companies will label their salmon as both natural and 100% sustainable. Over fishing is a problem today. It’s just good sense to protect the good foods.

Here is the recipe and information on preparing the salmon burgers with the rich yogurt sauce.

I make a thick rich yogurt from regular store purchased yogurt. Please see the link below on how to easily make this yogurt from store bought regular yogurt. I use the yogurt for many sauce bases. Again, yogurt is healthier for you than many other sauce bases. The sauce for the fish is delicious. In this recipe the avocado dressing is also made using the thick rich yogurt, as well.

The salmon burgers that were used in this recipe have 1360 mg of Omega-3 and 170 calories. They also have no trans fat and are 40% protein. So, good eating doesn’t get much better and flavorful than this!

Salmon Burger Sauce

1 C. thickened yogurt cheese

1 t. dill (dried dill was used but fresh dill may be substituted)

¼ cup finely chopped onions

1-2 t. lemon juice

Mix (it is that easy)

Top the Salmon burgers with one-half of the sauce and bake to the directions on the package of the salmon burgers. Serve the salmon burgers with extra sauce on the side.

If you have any left-over salmon burgers the sauce makes a lovely spread for cold salmon burger sandwiches.

Avocado Yogurt Dip

½ C. thickened yogurt cheese

2 avocados

¼ C. finely chopped onions

¼ C. finely chopped green chilés

A dash or two of Tabasco Green

One small or several little tomatoes finely chopped (water squeezed out and thrown away)

½-1 t. lime juice

Mash all ingredients together, taste, and season with salt to taste

Salmon are equally tasty baked, broiled, grilled, sautéed, and made into patties. Please see the links below for specific and recipes.

Here are the burgers in the picture!

A favorite in our house! BIG taste with not so much heat!
