This Caper Remoulade and Blackened Salmon Burger recipe is sponsored by Mazda. All opinions and are my own.
Enjoying a bit of time away with my kids this past break was immensely cherished and loved by us all! The chill was still in the air, the rains did in fact come, but we made of it and it was a lovely time indeed!
This year we made our way up to north Georgia in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in a zippy red metallic Mazda CX-5! It was an exhilarating adventure, a bit of luxury, and pure comfort.

If you ever get the opportunity to make it to Blue Ridge, Georgia, you’ll find so many great family friendly things you can enjoy, from time at the rivers and lakes to taking a tour on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway to Explore: Big Foot.
We love the breathtaking views, waterfalls, the beautiful mountains and of course the hiking trails. And that’s just a snippet of what you can do while in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Find out more about the area here.
I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, we would look for rocks, hoping to find an overlooked nugget of gold, gemstone or fossil. Well, my little ones got to do the real deal and we enjoyed “mining” and sifting for all of the above and found so many when we visiting the Aska Mining Company.
The inspiration for my blackened salmon burger recipe.
To top off the week, we had many mugs of hot chocolate and Turkish coffee at Das Kaffee Haus, plus a lovely meal at Harvest On Main! This is where my daughter had the inspiration for the recipe below, an easy to make Blackened Salmon Burger topped off with a gorgeous caper remoulade.
I’m loving this easy salmon recipe, it’s straight forward simple, easy to make, and taste amazing. It’s a version of your classic BLT sandwich, turned into a stunning loaded blackened salmon BLT recipe with an easy remoulade sauce to finish.
Serious flavors happening in this blackened salmon burger!
You can enjoy it as a full-fledged sized burger or turn it into sliders for a dinner party or get together, making it into a great tiny bite or appetizer.
Enjoy this easy to make salmon recipe with friends and family!
- Caper Remoulade:
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 3 Tbsp. gerkins or dill pickles, chopped
- 2 Tbsp. capers, drained
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- Juice of 1 lemon, about 1 Tbsp
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp blackening seasoning
- 4 Salmon filets, skinless
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 8 slices cooked crispy bacon
- Lettuce, I used a mix of baby greens
- Tomato slices
- Hamburger buns, toasted if desired
Cook the bacon until just crispy however you prefer, in a hot skillet, oven or microwave, set aside until ready to use.
Make the caper remoulade: Mix the remoulade ingredients together until well combined, keep refrigerated until ready to use.
For the Blackened Salmon:
*Depending on the size of the filets versus your buns of choice, you can leave them whole or cut in half.*
- Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add in the olive oil once hot.
- Season both sides of the salmon the blackening seasoning, about 1 1/2 - 2 tsp per filet.
- Place the salmon in the skillet, cook until slightly charred and crisp, about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Turn the salmon over and continue to cook about 2 - 3 minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
- To serve, you can toast the buns if desired, then layer the blackened salmon, caper remoulade, tomato slices, lettuce, and crispy bacon.
Serve & enjoy!
