  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, mix salmon, red onion, red bell pepper, zucchini, ¼ cup dill, paprika, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, eggs, and flour. Divide evenly into fourths and form into 4 burger patties, each about 3/4-inch thick. Place patties on the baking sheet.

  3. Bake burger patties for 20 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.

  4. In the meantime, make the yogurt mustard sauce. In a small bowl, combine yogurt, mustard, lemon juice, the remaining tablespoon of dill and the remaining ½ teaspoon garlic powder. Set aside.

  5. Once salmon burger patties are cooked, add to toasted burger buns along with sauce, tomato, and arugula.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
