9 salmon burger toppings that are amazing

Has your love for a freshly prepared salmon burger topped with delicious condiments and salsas led you here? 

Well, if that’s the case, then you’re surely in for a special treat as I’ve compiled a list of the best of the best salmon burger toppings that you can discover below!

People say that when it comes to burgers, no other food can hold a candle to a juicy beef patty! However, my taste buds would like to respectfully disagree! 

While I agree that a beef burger is the quintessential and most-loved burger of all times, a salmon burger has its uniquely delightful perks. 

Salmon is such a versatile and delicious ingredient to work with. A salmon burger presents you with an endless world of divine toppings. Whether its tangy condiments, fruit salsas, or cheese sauces, a salmon burger goes well with all of them. 

So, without further ado, let’s explore the most delicious salmon burger toppings to have ever been created!

1. Coleslaw

Coleslaws and burgers go hand in hand. After all, who can say no to thinly-sliced veggies folded into a generous helping of mayo? 

I know I can’t! 

The crispiness of the cabbage and carrots adds such an enjoyable texture to the burger, while the creaminess of the vinegary mayo perfectly balances the flavor of the salmon.

Pickled cucumbers with their garlicky, vinegary, and salty taste are just the perfect topping for a salmon burger.

The hint of sweetness that comes through the cucumbers perfectly ties the whole burger together. Trust me, this delicious topping will leave you wanting more!

3. Tropical Salsa

Salmon goes so incredibly well with tropical fruits, which is why one of the best salmon burger toppings includes mangoes and pineapples!

There’s just something so tingly and refreshingly enjoyable about a fruit salsa prepared with these juicy fruits and jalapeno peppers. The freshly squeezed lime juice adds a tangy kick to this dish that helps it become my favorite topping on this list!

4. Apricot Glaze

When it comes to fruit glazes, I love nothing more than a palatable apricot glaze. It’s the ideal fruit glaze for brushing on top of a grilled salmon burger.

The sweetness of the apricot preserves adds a nice complexity to the overall taste of the burger, which makes it all the more scrumptious!

This oil-based parsley sauce is the perfect topping for a salmon burger. The incredible blend of ingredients, including red wine vinegar, garlic, red chilies, parsley, oregano, and more make this sauce a surefire hit in my books.

6.  Jalapeno Tartar Sauce

Tartar sauce is a natural topping for a fish burger. However, if you want to add some zing to your salmon burger, prepare a tartar sauce with some minced jalapenos in it!

The pairing of the creamy sauce with the spicy peppers is a winning combo that will surely take your burger to new heights!

7. Soy Remoulade

If you’re looking for a sauce that was made to be paired with seafood, look no further than remoulade! This creamy, smoky, lemony, and spicy sauce is hands down one of the best salmon burger toppings.

However, a dash of soy sauce is the secret ingredient that will take this delicious sauce to the next level and give it that extra umami kick!

8. The Cheese Fest

We all know that a slice of cheddar goes well with burgers. However, think beyond a plain cheese slice for your salmon burger. Salmon can hold its own taste when paired with strong flavors so why don’t you pair it with a cheesy sauce prepared with some goat cheese, blue cheese, or feta cheese.

The blend of cheese with some sour cream and fresh herbs results in a mouthwateringly creamy and cheesy topping for your salmon burger.

9. Roasted Garlic Aioli

There’s just something truly delectable and irresistible about roasted garlic. Pair it with some mayo, Worcestershire sauce, fresh lemon juice, and cayenne to make a delightful aioli that will go oh-so-well with a salmon burger.
