- 1.5 pounds of Salmon (makes about 8 large patties)
Ask for the salmon without the bones, tail pieces, usually.
Salmon bought at the seafood counter is the best - the fresh fish really makes a difference. Have them take the skin off the salmon and cut it into 1 to 2 inch wide filets. Or if you buy the salmon in a pack, make sure you buy the tail pieces.
- 2 Tblsp chopped cilantro
- 1 ½ cups of Panko bread crumbs
- ½ tsp Salt ½ tsp Fresh ground pepper
- 2 Tblsp Hoisen sauce (in the Asian/Thai food section of the store)
- 1 Tblsp Garlic paste
- 1 Tblsp Ginger paste (found in the Asian/Thai section of the store)
- 1 pack of whole grain burger buns
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 1 Tblsp lemon juice
- 1 Tblsp ginger paste
- 1 Tblsp hoisen sauce (I add more to sweeten the sauce)
In a food processor combine the salmon, cilantro, panko, salt, pepper, hoisen, garlic paste and ginger paste. Chop until the mix can form a patty, add a little more panko if it’s not forming a patty with some ease. Once processed make the patties and either put them on the grill for about 5-8 minutes or in the oven at broiler temp for 5 minutes. For the sauce, just mix all ingredients well together in a small bowl/container.
Serve with coleslaw and add large lettuce spears and tomatoes to the burgers, with the sauce….
