A great alternative to a traditional hamburger!

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 4 minutes

 

 
1 pound salmon fillet, skinless, well chopped
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon onion, minced
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced or pressed
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1/2 teaspoon salt




To make the burger mixture, thoroughly
combine the burger ingredients in a medium
bowl. Divide into 4 portions, shape into patties
1/2 inch thick and 4 inches in diameter. Heat
the barbecue grill until the coals glow red with
white ash around the edge. The salmon patties
are fragile, so handle them carefully; if you chill
the patties on a plate in the refrigerator before
putting them on the grill, they will hold together
better.

When the barbecue is heated, put the salmon
patties on the grill at least 2 inches apart. Grill
until the first side is nicely marked, about 2
minutes, then turn and baste with Lemon Sour
Cream Butter. Continue cooking until the
burgers are just cooked through, about 2
minutes longer.

Split the buns and, if desired, butter lightly with
Lemon Sour Cream Butter and toast them on
the grill. Spread the buns with mayonnaise or
tartar sauce if using, add the burgers and pile
high with Summer Slaw.
