Recipe by: Katie Lee

Prep Time: 30 mins

Serving: 4 burgers


Salmon Burger Patties:
Two 7.5oz cans of Bumble Bee wild-caught salmon
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup finely diced celery
1/4 cup finely diced red onions
1/4 cup finely diced red bell peppers
2 tablespoons minced freshly parsley
2/3 cup cracker crumbs (I like Ritz)
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 egg
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1/2 lemon

Artichoke Aioli:
1 small jar artichokes, drained and chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped cornichons
1 tablespoon chopped capers (rinsed and drained)
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Burger patties

In a skillet over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of the oil and sauté the celery, onions and bell peppers until tender, 5 to 6 minutes

Stir in the parsley

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and add the salmon, cracker crumbs, mayonnaise, Dijon, salt, pepper, egg and lemon zest and juice

Mix with your hands until evenly combined

Shape into patties (I use 1/2 cup per patty, making 8)

Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat

Cook the patties (do not overcrowd the pan — I do 4 at a time) until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side

Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to cook the second batch.

Build your own salmon burgers on your favorite type of bun and top with arugula and aioli.


Combine the artichokes, mayonnaise, cornichons, capers, Dijon and lemon juice in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x
Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
