Salmon Burgers

We know how good all the Omega-3 in salmon is for you, but the best part of salmon is how much we love the taste. We cook salmon very frequently and I'm always on the lookout for a new way to serve it so that I can blog about it. I already have 5 other salmon recipes posted and I'm happy to add another.

I finely diced 1/2 pound of fresh salmon fillet and combined it with some chopped red and yellow bell peppers, panko breadcrumbs, and minced garlic. I added another mixture of beaten egg white with soy sauce, lemon juice and salt and mixed everything well. I formed this mixture into two patties and grilled them indoors on my grill pan. I put them on my homemade hamburger buns and topped them with red onion slices, lettuce, tomato slices and a nice dollop of cilantro mayo.

Adapted from Annie's Eats

1/4 cup red and yellow bell pepper, diced
4 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1/2 pound salmon fillets, skinned, boned and finely chopped
1 egg white, lightly beaten
3/4 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil

For the Cilantro Mayo
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup cilantro
Dash of cayenne pepper
Squeeze of lemon juice

For Serving:
Burger Buns
Green lettuce
Sliced red onion
Sliced tomatoes

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the diced bell pepper, panko, garlic and salmon. In a small bowl, combine the egg white, soy sauce, lemon juice and salt. Add the liquid mixture to the bowl with the salmon and toss gently until well incorporated. Form the mixure into two equal patties and set aside.

To make the cilantro mayo, combine all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Process until well combined and smooth.

Lightly coat a grill pan or skillet with the oil. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Cook the patties about 5 minutes per side, until cooked through.

Place burgers on the buns, spreading one side of the bun with the cilantro mayo. Top as desired with lettuce, onion and tomato.
