Take the diced salmon and break into 4 separate piles. Add to plastic wrap and tie tightly. Meanwhile, heat a skillet with 2 - 3" of water and bring to a light boil.
Drop in the wrapped salmon patties and cook for 5 minutes. Flip during cooking if the whole salmon burger is not submerged. Remove from the water and let cool slightly.
Spice each side of the salmon.
Heat a cast iron skillet on medium high heat. Add in the oil and once shimmering add the salmon patties. Cook for no more than 2 minutes per side.
Serve and enjoy!
