Salmon Burgers

These salmon burgers look so good that Paula Deen was making this morning. Thought I would share the recipe with you all.

1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup yellow bell pepper, diced

  • 3/4 cup panko

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 pounds salmon fillets, skinned and finely chopped

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Cooking spray

  • Sesame Mayonnaise, recipe follows

  • 8 buttered and toasted sandwich buns

  • 8 lettuce leaves

  • 8 slices tomato

  • Directions

    In a medium bowl, combine peppers, panko, garlic, and salmon.

    In a small bowl, combine egg, soy sauce, lemon juice, and salt; add to pepper mixture, tossing gently to combine. Form mixture into 8 patties.

    Lightly coat a grill pan or skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Grill or cook patties, 5 minutes per side, or until desired degree of doneness. Spread Sesame Mayonnaise evenly over toasted buns. Top each with a lettuce leaf, tomato slice, and salmon patty. Cover with tops of buns.

    Sesame Mayonnaise:

    • 1 cup mayonnaise
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
    In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Cover and chill.

    Yields: 1 cup
