Salmon Burgers with Dill Mayonnaise

This is also a recipe from the Food Network, but I changed it so much I'll call it mine! I had Costco rolls on hand so I made mini salmon burgers, my family loved them! I like Dill, but I don't love Dill, so I put less of it in the Dill mayo than was called for. If there is a lot of dill in a recipe, I just can't taste anything else! If you love it though put the original 2 Tbs. in the mayo recipe instead of the 1 Tbs. I'm writing in.

Salmon Burgers

2 tsp freshly chopped Italian flat leaf parsley
1/2 sweet onion, diced
2 eggs
1/2 c. panko or regular bread crumbs
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp kosher salt
1 lemon, zested
4 Tbs. Dill mayonnaise, recipe follows
13-15 oz. can boneless, skinless Alaskan salmon, drained well
2 Tbs. olive oil

Preheat oven to 400.
In medium bowl, combine parsley, onions, eggs, panko, black pepper, salt, lemon zest, and dill mayo together. Add drained salmon and mix well. Form into 4 large patties or 6 small patties.

In large skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Place burgers in skillet. Cook until browned, turn over and repeat. Place in oven for 4 minutes.
Serve on buns with Dill mayo and lettuce.

Dill Mayonnaise:

1/2 c. mayo
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 Tbs. fresh chopped dill leaves
pinch cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in small bowl and set aside.
