Reviews for Teriyaki Salmon Burgers
"My 13 year old suggested we make "teriyaki salmon sliders" while we were at the fish counter at the grocery store. We thought we'd just cut the filets into small pieces, but I found this recipe & I am so glad we did! Easy enough, although we weren't prepared for the refrigeration steps for the marinade & after forming the burgers (we cheated a bit). Now I know to plan a bit ahead. Even our picky 7 year old liked them. This will be a go-to recipe for sure!"
"A good weeknight dinner but nothing special. Very easy but I didn't see the 1 hour + 1 hour so only marinated about 30 minutes and didn't do the refrigerate for an hour. I broiled the patties and it only took about 5 minutes. I served with a wedge salad."
"This recipe is delicious and easy. Took these burgers to a cookout and they were a hit! I"m making this a second time today. It's a keeper."
