Salmon burgers

1/2 C chopped onion
1 T butter
1/2 C bread crumbs (I toasted 2 bread ends and crumbled them)
2 eggs
2 T lemon juice
2 T parsley
2 - 6oz cans salmon (or leftover fresh salmon)
dash garlic powder (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Saute the onion in the butter until clear.  Mix onion in a bowl with the salmon (drained and flaked), eggs, bread crumbs, parsley, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Form mixture into burgers and cook on a skillet over medium heat (spray first) for 4 minutes, flip, and cook a few minutes longer.  Serve on a bun with lettuce, tomato, and condiments or just serve plain.

I also saw recipes that included bell pepper in the salmon mix, which sounds good.  So try it out!
