California Roll Burger

California Roll Burger is all the flavors you love of the California Roll in hearty burger form. This sushi/burger fusion is better than any sushi burrito.

I really can’t figure out how to explain to you in words how much I’m in lust with this burger.

It’s all the taste of a California roll, but has the heartiness of a burger. I’m not going to lie – I didn’t have very high hopes for it.

What is a California Roll Burger?

This was a simple idea I thought of after meeting a friend for sushi last week. Yes, I was excited to see what the outcome would be, but the more the process went along the more I started having doubts.

I was concerned that the cucumber and sprouts would kinda drown the flavors I was hoping for.

I was so, so very wrong.

The taste combination is off the charts fantastic. You definitely don’t have to be a California Roll lover, or even a sushi lover to like this burger.

Trust me, trust me.

This burger is the bomb.

Hands down, one of the best things I’ve made in a while. It’s definitely a keeper, and easy enough for a weeknight dinner.

I could seriously drink the wasabi mayo, and since making it I’ve found so many things that it’s good on!

Here’s the printable-

California Roll Burger

California Burger


  • 2 salmon fillets (about 1 to 1/2 pounds), skin removed
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 4 tsp sesame oil, divided
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/2 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • Wasabi paste, to taste
  • Hamburger buns
  • Alfalfa sprouts
  • Cucumber slices


Dice salmon and run through a food processor just until almost ground, but not completely. You don't want to over process it.

Combine the salmon, eggs, bread crumbs, 2 tsp sesame oil, soy sauce and ginger with your hands. Form into four patties, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Add the avocado, mayo and about 1 tsp of wasabi paste in a food processor. Pulse until smooth, continuing to add wasabi until you're happy with it. Cover and refrigerate.

Add the remaining 2 tsp sesame oil to a large frying pan over medium heat.

When the oil begins to get hot (not smoking!) add the burgers and cook about 3-4 minutes on each side, until done.

Add to buns, top with sprouts, cucumber slices and avocado mayo.
