Salmon Burgers with Tarragon Mayonnaise Recipe

Salmon Burgers with Tarragon Mayonnaise are really delicious, plus they are moist and perfectly flavored.  During salmon season in the Pacific Northwest, especially in Oregon and Washington, these are a must make.

This wonderful salmon recipe was shared with me by Charlotte Crowley of Portland, Oregon.  I have shared this recipe on my web site for many years and now I am finding it all over the internet.  It sounds to me that a lot of people are enjoying Charlotte’s recipe.
