Costco Trident Wild Pacific Pink Salmon Burgers Review

Not fishy at all! Tastes slightly like chicken!

So the things I review are partially influenced by my husband! When we go to Costco I often buy things to review that I know he’ll try/eat. This review today for the Trident Wild Pacific Pink Salmon Burgers! When I picked these up out of the freezer I knew I’d be eating these entirely on my own. My husband WAS agreeable to grilling them for me though!


Salmon is something I could take or leave. I dislike really fishy-smelling, wet, slimy or oily salmon. The thing about the Trident Wild Pacific Pink Salmon Burgers is that I honestly believe people who don’t even like salmon will enjoy these! They’ve got a really nice flavor and don’t taste “fishy” at all, they’re nicely seasoned and aren’t overly salty but are still very flavorful and don’t require extra seasoning. The salmon itself is light, flaky and firm (not at all mushy). These almost taste more like chicken to me than salmon? I think because they lack that super pungent fishy taste I’m used to when I eat salmon. I enjoy them just alone without any additional sauce or toppings and don’t even need a bun.

You get 12 salmon burgers in the bag and I paid $19.99 Canadian (not on sale).


These can be found in the FREEZER section at Costco by the other seafood/fish. They need to be kept frozen and come in a convenient resealable bag. The salmon burgers can be grilled, heated in the oven or heated in a fry pan. These are super convenient for work lunches or dinner. I brought them to work and that’s a good sign because it means they don’t smell too much!

One salmon burger is 170 calories, nine grams of fat, 330 mg of sodium, two grams of carbohydrates, 20 grams of protein, zero grams of sugar and fibre. The second ingredient is unfortunately vegetable oil and I know a lot of individuals try to avoid vegetable oil so I thought I’d point that out. Salmon is super healthy for you, it’s full of healthy fat.

I’m not a HUGE salmon fan but I really enjoyed these salmon burgers and will happily finish my bag. They don’t smell or taste fishy which is huge when it comes to salmon. They’re also pretty healthy too!

Taste: 8/10

Cost: 7/10

  1. These are really great in a pinch. I often pan fry them in olive oil with onion and bell peppers, then chop them up to add with a quick Alfredo sauce and noodles (broccoli too or whatever veggies I have on hand). They do not always need to be served as a patty. I also enjoy them cold and chopped up the next day from leftover patties on a salad. If you are looking for convenience and good taste, these salmon patties are worth it.

  2. Quite possibly the worst tasting product I ever purchased from Costco. The fishy taste was prevalent throughout the burger. I pan fried and tried one as an ingredient in eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce. Just meals I’m trying to forget.

  3. I was looking for a way to counteract the utterly overly salted salmon burgers… did you see the sodium content 1/2 a normal person’s recommended amt( 2 burgers) I will never buy these again the salt overwhelms and good flavor

  4. i bought & made this salmon burger last night…not impressed. i cooked it in my toaster over per instructions….my mother made salmon patties from canned salmon my entire life & they were delicious, & i have made them from canned & fresh salmon…those are real salmon burgers, patties, cakes whatever you call them. no comparisons at all, i will return to costco tomorrow…so disappointed. i do love trident fish sticks though..

  5. Amazing and delicious food is readily available if you know where to look. Obviously, it would be silly for me to tell you about every amazing and delicious food in existence — otherwise, this article would never end — but that doesn’t mean I can’t share a few of my favorites.

  6. I really like these salmon patties. The author is right—they don’t taste fishy at all. I usually sauté these with bell pepper and onion strips in a little olive oil. I’ve also served them on a bun with Dijon mustard, mayo, lettuce and tomato. They make a quick, delicious, healthy meal—highly recommend them.

  7. The Costco in Rockland County, NY no longer carries Bear and Wolf Pink Salmon. I love this stuff! It also does not contain soy, which I am unable to eat.
    Any ideas where I may find Bear and Wolf pink salmon?
