Salmon Burgers with Cilantro MayoPosted: April 13, 2010
I have never had a salmon burger and was always afraid to try them as I was afraid they would be too fishy tasting or get too dry. But when I saw this recipe and how Annie’s recipes are always winners, I knew I had to give them a try. They were a great and a great way to enjoy salmon.
½ cup red bell pepper, diced-I used green peppers
6 tbsp. panko bread crumbs-I used ww
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 lb. salmon fillets, skinned, boned and finely chopped
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
1½ tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
¼ tsp. salt
1-2 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
For the cilantro mayo:
1 clove garlic, chopped
½ cup mayo
½ cup cilantro
Dash of cayenne pepper
Squeeze of lemon juice
Sliced red onion-I omitted
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 mixture into four equal patties.
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 1 tablespoon of the oil. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Cook the patties about 5 minutes per side, until cooked through.
Place the burgers on the buns, spreading one side of the bun with the cilantro mayo. Top as desired with lettuce, onion and tomato.
