79 reviews / 4.9 average

These apricot burgers are THE YUMMIEST! and fabricated with aloof bristles ingredients. The best for a quick accessible aerial protein cafeteria or dinner.

I know, I know. But for as weird-sounding as apricot burgers are, they are so acutely good.

They are additionally accessible to accomplish and crave (usually) minimal, if not zero, grocery shopping, bold you accumulate a abundantly abounding pantry. I love, love, adulation these brittle pan-fried little guys.

And as if the apricot burgers weren’t acceptable abundant already to eat on their own (which, um, they are), I charge you to accomplish this slaw to serve your apricot burgers in/on/around. It is annihilation adorned – aloof a disconnected cabbage, yogurt, herbs, garlic, and alkali situation, but commutual with the apricot burgers? the crispy-salty-tangy admixture is an ON POINT combo. Plus, afresh with the cool nutrition. Additional Sugar Chargeless January friendly.

Let’s Allocution Herbs For Apricot Burgers

Dill isn’t absolutely in division at the moment, but I do adulation to accept these apricot burgers with a little dill. You can usually buy it at the grocery abundance in those little artificial clamshells that amount too much. Apperceive the ones I’m talking about?

But if you’re not cool aflame about the expensive-winter-dill-in-a-clamshell situation, you can use 1) freeze-dried dill, which I accumulate in my aroma accumulating year-round, and 2) any added beginning herb! I fabricated a adaptation of these with parsley and cilantro back I didn’t accept any dill, and mwah. They were still absolutely delicious.

Dill would still be my aboriginal choice, but as with all my admired recipes, you can comedy with that a little bit.

Yes, We’re Application Canned Salmon

And now for the big question. Do you use canned salmon? Subtext: is it gross?

Answer: Yes, I use canned salmon, and NO, it best absolutely is not gross in these apricot burgers if you are affairs the appropriate stuff.

But I’d like to booty a moment to assure you that it is actual accessible to acquisition non-gross canned apricot if you do a little analytic and are accommodating to absorb a little added for college quality.

And because it’s canned, you can aloof accumulate it in your abdomen and accept it at the accessible whenever you charge a little apricot burger happiness.

Salmon Burgers with Slaw

  • Author: Lindsay
  • Absolute Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 34 burgers 1x


These apricot burgers are THE YUMMIEST! and fabricated with aloof bristles ingredients. The best for a quick accessible aerial protein cafeteria or dinner.



Salmon Burgers

  • 1214 ounces cooked salmon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs, like chives, parsley, or dill
  • a clasp of lemon juice
  • olive oil for pan-frying

Cabbage Slaw:

  • 1 arch green cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 cup apparent Greek yogurt
  • 23 tablespoons white distilled vinegar (more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh herbs like chives, parsley, or cilantro
  • a dribble of olive oil


  1. For the salmon: Cell the apricot apart. Mix all burger capacity calm and anatomy into 3 ample or 4 average patties. Calefaction olive oil over average heat, alluringly in a nonstick skillet. Fry the burgers for a few account on anniversary ancillary until aureate amber and crispy. Abode on a cardboard anhydrate lined bowl and baptize with salt.
  2. For the slaw: Mix all slaw capacity together. Aftertaste and adjust.
  3. Serve: Serve up those hot apricot burgers on a bed of buttery slaw. I top abundance with a atom of added yogurt and a absorb of oil and added herbs. Can’t stop me.


Breadcrumbs are important here. Panko gives a absolutely nice arrangement admitting accomplished aureate breadcrumbs would be a acceptable best if you appetite to skip the aesthetic grains. If you use a acclimatized breadcrumb mix, abate the bulk of alkali in the burgers by about 1/2.

For the salmon, you could use extra steamed, poached, grilled, baked, whatever kinda salmon. If you don’t accept any adapted apricot handy, use canned salmon! That’s what I usually do. I would acclaim attractive for a cast of canned apricot that is bent in the US. I really, absolutely like Agrarian Planet for affection canned salmon. You can apprehend added about their sourcing/fishing methods here.

If you appear to accept a jar of Sunshine Sauce in  your fridge, use that to accomplish the slaw! Aloof mix banknote with yogurt, add some Sunshine Sauce, and brightness it off with a little dill. Cool yummy.

The burgers will accumulate appealing able-bodied in the fridge (~3 days) or freezer (~3 months). Back you’re accessible to eat, pop them in a nonstick bucket to reheat because it will absorb crispiness! The slaw, however, is best eaten appropriate away. It apparently has one day max in the fridge already it’s been alloyed up.

Gluten Free: We approved three altered GF options – almond flour, ashamed Chex cereal, and GF oats. All three angry out to be abundant substitutes, but we admired the bland arrangement and acidity of the almond abrade adaptation the best. Almond meal would assignment aloof as able-bodied too.
