sliders5Deliciously flavorful smokey salmon sliders with a refreshing lemon dill yogurt spread make for the ultimate hand-held delight.

Since i’m all about the fall football food right now, I wanted to make some kind of hand-held treasure that wasn’t beef, chicken, or pork since we already have copious amounts of those around. I wanted a flavor-packed slider with a creamy sauce and loads of toppings because mini food means you get to eat more, right??? 😉

These sliders come together quickly and are such a fun twist on eating a plain ol’ salmon filet. They will also make you think you’re eating something much more indulgent than you really are. You will get a boatload (legit unit of measurement in my vocab) of heart-healthy omega-3 fats in just one slider. It’s FEEL GOOD food, y’all!

However that beautiful golden crust, hints of smoked paprika and wonderful aromatic herbs just take them to another level. A level that I want in my dinner rotation on a weekly basis.

If you’re not feelin’ the sliders, there are a ton of delicious alternatives to use the salmon patties for. Break them up and stuff them in a wrap, use them as a topping for a big voluminous green salad OR (best one) top them with a fried egg, arugula and a drizzle of maple syrup and get your breakfast game-face on. YES.

slidersI kind of want to make them into mini meatballs next and serve them over a bed of spaghetti squash. Ehh?? Or just pop them into my mouth one by one like this bag of almond M&M’s i’m currently demolishing while typing this post. Because, Monday.

Toppings for these are totally customizable, though I went pretty traditional with lettuce, sliced red onion and avocado. Though I have to admit, perhaps a little slice of bacon on top would just bring them from a 10 to a 10,000. The additional smoky flavor plus the added crunch.. drool.

  • Set oven to broil (~500 degrees F). Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with non-stick cooking spray. Set salmon skin-side down and season flesh with salt and pepper. Broil for 8 minutes until salmon is medium-rare. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Discard skin.
  • Transfer salmon to a large bowl and combine with remaining ingredients. Mix all ingredients thoroughly (best to do with your hands so you break up any chunks of salmon) until well combined.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add a dash of olive oil. Form salmon burgers into 10 well-rounded patties. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side, until browned.
  • In the meantime, prepare spread by mixing all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
  • To assemble, coat bottom half of slider with yogurt spread. Top with salmon patty and toppings of choice. Serve!
