In my never-ending search for meals quick enough for a weeknight, but different enough not to bore our taste buds, I stumbled across this lovely recipe. Of course I have seen salmon burgers plenty of times before, though I’m not sure I had ever tasted one. I like salmon and I like burgers so this sounded great to me.
Some fish can be quite delicate and I was a bit concerned that these patties would fall apart during the transfer or cooking process, but I was pleasantly surprised. They held their shape perfectly and cooked through very well without falling apart. I threw together a cilantro mayo and along with the fresh lettuce, tomato and onion on top, this burger was dressed just right. The flavor was well balanced so that you could taste the salmon but it wasn’t too fishy. Next time I may try mixing a few chopped green onions into the burger mixture to add another dimension of flavor. We’ll certainly be having these again!
