Hamburgers and beef burgers can get a little boring after a while. Ditch the red meat tonight and try something lighter and more refreshing instead! Salmon burgers make a healthier alternative to meat with the added bonus that they taste like summer even in the fall or winter. Pop your burger on a bun, add your favorite toppings, drizzle with a homemade spicy yogurt sauce, and dig in! For an easy twist on this meal, serve with a side of rice and steamed seasonal veggies.

Add salmon to a food processor and pulse gently just until it reaches a rough chop.
In a large bowl, add the egg and beat it gently. Add salmon, breadcrumbs, chili powder, cumin, garlic, lemon juice, and soy sauce. Stir gently until combined and then form into 4 patties.
Heat a nonstick pan to medium-high heat and place salmon patties into the pan when hot. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side until they have browned and cooked all the way through.
