While not a traditional burger, these salmon burgers are so much better! With a paste and pieces of whole salmon, these burgers are juicy and satisfy any sandwich cravings! When paired with a dill aioli, there couldn't be anything better for any season of the year!
Remove skin from the filets and cut into 1-inch cubes. Place about ¾ of the salmon in a food processor. Add the white beans, scallions, capers, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.
Pulse the food processor until the salmon and beans are a thick paste, about five 5-second pulses. Add the remaining salmon and pulse a few times to combine.
Form the salmon into six equal burgers. Flatten the burgers out to about four inches in diameter and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Heat 1 tbsp neutral oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, add the burgers to the skillet. Cook the burgers until a golden crust is formed on both sides and the inside of the burger reaches 120°F, about 3-4 minutes per side. Once cooked, remove from skillet and serve.
For the dill aioli
In a small container or a blender canister, combine the egg, garlic, salt, pepper, mustard, capers, and dill. Use an immersion blender or blender and blend until the ingredients are combined and smooth. With the blender running, slowly drizzle in oil until the mixture has thickened, 30 seconds to one minute. Serve with the salmon burgers.
