Last weekend while my dad was here, he treated me to a new grill. I have a George Foreman, but it is not the same. You don’t get that “real grill taste” if you know what I mean.

Ever since I got my new grill, I have been wanting to make some burgers. I had a bison burger over the weekend, so I was in the mood for something different. I saw a recipe for salmon burgers that caught my eye. Salmon is actually my favorite fish, so I knew I was in for a treat.

After surfing around the internet some more, I settled on this recipe. I didn’t make the “green goddess sauce”.

  • 1 pound wild salmon fillet, skinned
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion, or scallion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil

1. With a large chef’s knife, chop salmon using quick, even, straight-up-and-down motions (do not rock the knife through the fish or it will turn mushy) until you have a mass of roughly 1/4-inch pieces. Transfer to large bowl and gently stir in onion (or scallion), cilantro, ginger, salt and pepper, being careful not to overmix. Divide the mixture into 4 patties, about 1 inch thick. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes (or up to 2 hours) before cooking.

2. Preheat grill for a few minutes, then cook the burgers for 3-5 minutes on each side, but be sure not to overcook. The last thing you want in overcooked salmon. YUCK!

3. Serve them on whole wheat buns with plenty of ketchup!

I also made some delicious sweet potato fries to go with them. They are very simple to make. I basically just cut up a sweet potato, toss it with olive oil, paprika, garlic, salt, and pepper and bake them for 300 minutes at 400 degrees, flipping halfway through. Sometimes I will change up the spices and use cinnamon, ect… The sky is the limit.
