Let’s take a minute to discuss one of my favorite ingredients: salmon. Not only is salmon a super-food but it is one of those ingredients that seems to taste good no matter how you prepare it. The variations are endless. Try smoked salmon with spinach, blueberries and avocado for a “brain power salad” or perhaps pair it with asparagus and fettuccine for an easy weeknight pasta dish. Grilled salmon can be made into sandwiches, skewered with pineapple, or slathered in dill butter and placed atop brown rice. It can be made into a delicious dip, added to a spicy curry, or roasted with cherry tomatoes. And of course there is my very favorite way to eat salmon, especially in the summer: the ultimate salmon salad. I have prepared all of these recipes and can vouch for the unique deliciousness of each one. This week I added one more recipe to my collection: salmon burgers. Sure, I have tried salmon burger recipes before but none really impressed me. Most recipes use bread and egg as a binder which can make the burger feel cake-like. This recipe omits the bread and egg and, thus, it feels more “meaty”, like a burger should. I paired the salmon burgers with multigrain tortilla chips for an easy weeknight dinner but you could easily add a salad or asian coleslaw for a side. I will be making these burgers all summer long and I hope you do too.
Yield: 4 burgers
