Salmon Burgers

IMG_5911 (2)

I was skeptical about these burgers because they’re on an entire different field from the usual beef or turkey burger. I mean, people don’t usually eat fish burgers. But, I’m happy to say that I was wrong to doubt them, because they were delicious! Packed with flavor from the Dijon mustard and fresh dill, these salmon burgers are kind of addicting.

Original recipe from Real Simple [makes 4 burgers]
2 pounds salmon fillet, skin removed
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs (1 slice bread, ground in a food processor)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
kosher salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 brioche buns, toasted (I used homemade hamburger buns)

1. Finely chop the salmon. Place half in a large resealable plastic bag and use a flat-surfaced meat pounder or a rolling pin to mash it. (I just finely chopped it and skipped the rest of this step.)
2. Place all the salmon in a large bowl. Combine with egg whites, mustard, bread crumbs, dill, and ½ teaspoon salt. Form inch-thick patties.
3. Heat the oil in a grill pan over medium heat and cook patties 5 minutes per side.
4. Serve the patties on buns.
