    Is the salmon uncooked when you form the patties?

    • Echo says:

      Great question, Brenna. I should’ve made that more clear in the recipes. Yes! The salmon is raw when you form the patties. Salmon cooks quickly. When you make the Salmon Burgers with raw salmon it cooks up moist and juicy, without drying out.
