Salmon makes a great burger! Here, Norwegian chef and restaurateur Chef Geir Skeie transforms a fillet of salmon into a juicy burger, and added some real American BBQ sauce and a fresh home made coleslaw to complete the magic. Delicious with baked potatoes and a crispy green salad!


  • 150 g salmon fillet
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsps BBQ sauce
  • 2 tbsps mayo
  • ¼ shredded carrot
  • 50 g cabbage
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/8 red onion thinly sliced
  • 3 slices tomato
  • 4 slices cucumber
  • 1 brioche

Finely chop the salmon with a knife, or grind in a coarse meat grinder. Mix with salt and shape into a 2-cm thick burger.


Grill the burger on high heat with some oil – or use a frying pan. About 1 min on each side.


Mix cabbage, carrot, mayo and salt to make coleslaw. Toast the brioche.


Layer coleslaw, greens, burger and BBQ sauce on the brioche.
