No. 1 : Quick Recipe
Super Salmon Sliders
- 1 TB Chopped Fresh Dill, divided
- 4 TB Avocado or Olive Oil Mayonnaise, divided
- 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
- 3/4 LB Salmon Filet, skin removed and coarsely chopped
- 2 TB Rolled Oats
- 2 TB Chopped Green Onions
- 2 Tsp Dijon
- ½ Tsp Sea Salt
- ¼ Tsp Black Pepper
To make the dill mayo, add 2 Tsp dill, 3 TB mayo and 1 tsp lemon juice to a small bowl and set aside.
Heat a cast iron skillet, non stick skillet or a griddle on medium heat and spray with oil. Combine the remaining dill and mayo, the salmon, oats onions, and Dijon in a food processor and use the pulse feature until everything is fully mixed. Shape salmon mixture into 4 – 6 sliders. (If you have time, you may want to place your sliders in the fridge for 30 minutes until they “set up”. It will make cooking them easier. If you do this, don’t heat your skillet until the sliders are out of the fridge.)
Remove from the fridge if you’ve had them in there – otherwise just place on the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes before flipping. Flip and cook until salmon for another 3 – 5 minutes). Serve on top of a fresh whole wheat slider bun with lettuce, tomato and dill mayo.

Don’t be afraid of frozen fish – I use frozen wild salmon for this recipe all the time. Its flavorful and sustainable!
No. 3 : Clever Idea
These sliders are a cinch to make for parties too! You can serve them up as a slider, or make “salmon balls” out of them – and use the dill mayo as a dipping sauce. They freeze great, so put them on a small sheet pan in one layer and pop in the freezer until frozen, then you can take them and put them in a ziplock bag for longer storage – up to 3 months. Make sure to squeeze all the air out of the bag to keep them from freezer burn.
