Ingredients
Salmon Burgers
  • 1lb salmon filet (skin removed)
  • 1cup fresh breadcrumbs (see note)
  • 1/4cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4cup mayonnaise
  • 1tbsp lemon juice
  • 1tsp mustard
  • salt, pepper
  • olive oil for greasing the pan or grill
Avocado Salsa
  • 1large avocado, chopped
  • 1/3cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
Instructions
Salmon Burgers
  1. Chop the salmon filet into small pieces (about 1/4 inch) and transfer it into a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Gently stir in the rest of the ingredients. Let the mixture rest for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Heat a little oil in a large non-stick grill pan over medium heat. Divide the salmon mixture into 6 and form neat patties (I used a 1/2 cup as a measure). Fry/grill the patties until browned on both sides and just cooked through; about 4 minutes on each side.
Avocado Salsa
  1. Combine all the salsa ingredients together and mix well.
Recipe Notes

Note: I prefer to use use fresh breadcrumbs, although you may use Panko instead. To make a cup of fresh breadcrumbs, just place 4 slices of slightly stale (at least one-day old) bread in a food processor and process until breadcrumbs form. Italian or regular white bread will work the best for this recipe.
