Paleo Salmon Burgers with Mustard Sauce

A spicy mustard sauce is the perfect accompaniment to these simple paleo salmon burgers. The burgers can be pan-seared or grilled for a light and easy dinner. To serve, top the burgers with crunchy cucumbers and sliced tomatoes.



12 oz. salmon fillets, skin removed and finely chopped
1 egg, beaten
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 green onions, chopped
1 tbsp Paleo hoisin sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Dash of cayenne
1/4 cup almond flour
Coconut oil, for the pan

For the mustard sauce:

1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tbsp spicy Paleo mustard
1-2 tbsp lemon juice


1. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Use your hands to form 4-5 burger patties, packing firmly.

2. In a separate bowl, stir together the ingredients for the mustard sauce. Adjust lemon juice to taste. Set aside.

3. Melt about a tablespoon of coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the salmon patties and cook for 4-6 minutes per side, until browned and opaque throughout. Serve warm, drizzled with mustard sauce.
