Make

  1. Heat oven to 500F / 260C degrees. Spread potatoes out into one even layer on a sheet pan. Cover tightly with foil and ‘steam’ for 10 minutes.
  2. While potatoes steam, heat a non-stick pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then patties to heated oil. Sear on each side for 2 to 3 minutes. Lower heat to medium, cover pan with a lid or foil, and cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. After potatoes have steamed for ~10 minutes, remove foil and toss potatoes with oregano and cooking oil. Return to oven and roast for another 10 to 12 minutes, until golden and crispy on the outside. Salt and pepper right out of the oven.
  4. Toast buns according to package instructions.
  5. Assemble burgers by layering patties, tartar sauce, tomatoes, and romaine. Enjoy with pickles and herb roasted potatoes!
  6. Get started on your slow cooker adobo chicken if making tomorrow night's dinner!

Used cooked salmon from the no drain packs. It fit better into my schedule that I didn't have to skin and chop filet. They were still very good! Tartar sauce was great. Potatoes were ok.

Wasn't sure about this one, but we all enjoyed it. I used canned salmon which worked fine.

This was so fresh and delicious! We added a bit more panko to help hold together. I agree that a veggie side may have been better because I felt like this was such a healthy dish (fresh chopped salmon, parsley, yogurt sauce!)

This was really good. The salmon burgers fell apart a lot when I was cooking them though, but they were still yummy.

Really good! We used store-bought tartar sauce to save time and because we couldn't find capers!
