Ingredients

Salmon Burgers

  • 1 lb salmon fillet (skin removed)
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (see note)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro or parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • olive oil for greasing the pan or grill

Avocado Salsa

  • 1 large avocado, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Salmon Burgers

  • Chop the salmon fillet into small pieces (about 1/4 inch) and transfer it into a medium mixing bowl.
  • Gently stir in the rest of the ingredients. Let the mixture rest for 5-10 minutes.
  • 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

  • Combine all the salsa ingredients together and mix well.

Notes

[nutrition-label]
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.
