Recipe: Snappy Salmon Burgers

A heart-healthy option for the stovetop or grill

Tasty salmon burgers

These salmon patties are not only tasty, but they’re rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, too! Make them ahead of time and refrigerate until you’re ready to cook. (Planning to grill? Place salmon burgers in the freezer first for 20 to 30 minutes. That way, they’ll hold together better.)
