I am back in California after a week home in Massachusetts and happy to be back to work and back at home on the blog. I missed it and all of you a lot. With the sun shining and Memorial Day just around the corner, all I am thinking about is burgers and delicious summer recipes. This simple salmon burger recipe is a great alternative to a traditional burger and is perfect over a bed of greens or on your favorite bread. You can mix up the spices and add whatever you like Cajun or blackened is delicious and it can be a quick go to dinner or lunch since it freezes really well. The trick to this recipe is blending about 1/4 of the salmon into a paste to serve as the binding agent in the recipe. This means that you can avoid adding eggs or mayo which typically binds the salmon. Also, since I was eating alone last night I just cooked my burger in a pan but these work great on the grill as well.

  2. Add 1/4 of the salmon to a food processor with the mustard, yogurt, lemon, and Tabasco. Pulse the mixture until it becomes a paste.
  3. Add the remaining salmon and shallots and pulse until it is just combined. Do not over process the salmon and try to make sure the pieces remain over a 1/4 inch of so.
