Otherwise known as:

any excuse to eat a pretzel roll.

Or a really really good excuse to eat a pretzel roll.

Green Goddess Salmon Burgers

JK. I do what I want and I never need an excuse to eat a pretzel roll. That’s the beauty of being an adult!!

Also, I get to decide what to make for dinner, which means I get to make these salmon burgers whenever the craving strikes.

So: often.

Green Goddess Salmon Burgers

Honestly, I’ve been a little bit plus/minus on salmon lately. The fillets we’ve been getting from the online food delivery service we use have been meh. Probably I just need to find a better source.

BUT even meh salmon tastes really good in salmon burgers!! Especially these, which are filled with so much fresh herb flavor and topped with an avocado green goddess sauce that you’ll want to eat by the spoonful it’s so good and good for you.

Plus salmon burgers keep SO MUCH BETTER in the fridge than baked or sauteed salmon. So if you’re like me, you can make a whole batch and eat them throughout the week instead of having to break out your skillet and cook dinner every dang night.

No one has time for that, seriously.

    These parties were seriously good! Healthy and so tasty. We enjoyed them with a leaf salad. Oh, and added some chopped jalapeños to the patties in lieu of shallots.
    I think the avocado sauce was better the day after- the herbs and garlic infused through.
