Taste Hawaii – Salmon Burger Recipe

If you are in the habit of grabbing something and holding it in your hands while munching on it, then salmon burgers are quite a treat for your taste buds.  Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamin B12 and selenium.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds boned and skinned fresh wild salmon, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 tablespoon drained capers, chopped

2/3 cup organic panko (Japanese) bread crumbs

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten

1 tablespoon butter

4 hamburger buns, toasted

tartar sauce, dijon mustard or dill sauce (choose one)

coleslaw

Directions:

1. In food processor, pulse the salmon cubes several times until coarsely ground flakes. Place ground salmon in large bowl: stir in capers, bread crumbs, lemon juice, pepper, salt and egg – mix until fully combined. Divide mixture into 4 firmly compressed patties.

2. In a large sauté pan, melt butter over medium-high heat – add burgers and sauté, adjust heat as needed; cook until burgers are golden brown, then turn (2 – 2 1/2 minutes per side).

Preparation:

Spread tartar sauce, dijon mustard or dill sauce on inside of each toasted bun; place coleslaw on the base of bun, place a burger on top of slaw. Garnish with fresh organic sliced cucumbers and tomatoes. Serve immediately.

Servings: 4
