Greek Salmon Burgers, via Better Homes & Gardens magazine, May 2014
It’s become a bit of a not-so-funny joke between Brian and I that I don’t cook anymore. I used to make the time for it and enjoyed it even, but that all changed after I got pregnant a few years ago. I couldn’t bear the smell of most foods as I battled nausea and felt legless by the end of most days. Brian took over the role of “le chef” in our house and I never exactly argued.
Since moving into the new place though, despite the extraordinarily teeny size of the kitchen workspace, I’ve been making more of an effort to try out some new recipes. Admittedly, I have an ulterior motive: I’ve been redesigning our kitchen since my first tour of the house but know that I need to really use the space before I even think about any sort of renovation. So there’s that.
I’ve also been paging through my old Martha Stewart and Better Home and Garden magazines to look for garden and home inspiration. I adore Pinterest, but I’m more old school when in comes to getting inspired. There’s nothing like settling in with a stack of magazines before Emilia’s up on a weekend morning and enjoying a cup of coffee. I just let my mind wander with ideas as I page along, sipping my brew and enjoying our beautiful garden and yard.

Anyways, all this to say that on my most recent magazine review, I found a delicious recipe for Greek Salmon burgers and could wait to try it. I’d never chopped and processed salmon into patties before so that was really fun. And the Greek” seasoning with the cucumber yogurt was really delicious, cool and refreshing. I can’t wait to make this for guests sometime too. For now, it’s definitely getting filed in my “Tried and True” recipes binder.
You should definitely try this. I wasn’t sure what to expect as far as salmon in burger form, but it really came together really nicely. Prep was quick-ish (if you can easily source the ingredients) and the flavors were total perfection.
