Salmon burger can be delicious, with a touch of lemon juice and few chopped capers for fresh, bright flavor.
1½ pounds boned and skinned salmon, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tablespoon drained capers, chopped
2/3 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon butter, more as needed
4 hamburger buns, toasted
In bowl of food processor, pulse salmon cubes until coarsely ground. Remove ground salmon to large bowl. Stir in capers, bread crumbs, lemon juice, pepper, salt and egg until mixture is fully combined. Divide into 4 patties. In large saute pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add burgers and saute, adjusting heat as needed, until burgers are golden on outside and cooked throughout.
Brush insides of each toasted bun with tartar sauce. Spoon a little coleslaw on base of bun. Place burger on slaw, then bun top. Serve immediately.
Yield: Serve 4.
