SALMON BURGERS WITH AVOCADO SALSA

SALMON BURGERS WITH AVOCADO SALSA


All the ingredients are simple and other than the fish, you probably already have the rest of ingredients on hand. Here is the list:
  • salmon filet (skin removed)
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • salt, pepper
  • olive oil for greasing the pan or grill

I always prefer to use fresh breadcrumbs over Panko. I believe they add much better texture and flavor. To make a cup of fresh breadcrumbs, just place 4 slices of slightly stale (or frozen!) bread in a food processor and process until breadcrumbs form. Italian or regular white bread will work the best for this recipe.

Ingredients
  • Salmon Burgers
  • 1 lb salmon filet (skin removed)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (see note)
  • salt, pepper

Avocado Salsa
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 large avocado, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Servings:6 patties
Units: US Imperial

Instructions

  1. Salmon Burgers
  2. Chop the salmon filet into small pieces (about 1/4 inch) and transfer it into a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Gently stir in the rest of the ingredients. Let the mixture rest for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Heat a little oil in a large non-stick grill pan over medium heat. Divide the salmon mixture into 6 and form neat patties (I used a 1/2 cup as a measure). Fry/grill the patties until browned on both sides and just cooked through; about 4 minutes on each side.

Avocado Salsa
1. Combine all the salsa ingredients together and mix well.

Note: I prefer to use use fresh breadcrumbs, although you may use Panko instead. To make a cup of fresh breadcrumbs, just place 4 slices of slightly stale (at least one-day old) bread in a food processor and process until breadcrumbs form. Italian or regular white bread will work the best for this recipe.
