Smoky Salmon Bagel Burger with Garlic-Dill Schmear! Love bagels and lox? You'll go "wild" over these simply gratifying salmon burgers made with wild-caught Alaska salmon. They're a quick, versatile bite that works for brunch, lunch or dinner!
Heat olive oil in a large pan or grill pan over medium-high heat. In a bowl, combine the chopped Alaska salmon, egg, panko, onion powder, smoked paprika and salt until well-mixed.
Form 4 patties, about ¼ pound each, from the mixture and place in the pan. Cook on the first side for about 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes until the burger is cooked through -- try not to overcook. Remove from pan when done and set aside.
Meanwhile, make schmear by mixing together the cream cheese, yogurt, dill, garlic powder and salt in a bowl until uniform and spreadable.
Assemble burgers: Place prepared salmon burgers onto the bottom half of each bagel. Place spinach leaves and red onion on top. Top with cucumber slices. Spread about 1 tablespoon of schmear onto the other half of the bagel and place on top to complete your "burger."
