Recipe

In my experience, people either love or hate seafood burgers. I am not quite sure why this is, but I just don't know too many people who go middle of the road when it comes to seafood burgers. Personally, I am on the love side and usually tell those who aren't fans that I have made them salmon cakes. Problem solved. Ha! The key to making a delicious seafood burger is in the mix and making sure everything holds together. To do this, we are going to use the food processor to make a thick "paste" (I hate using this word but there is nothing else to really describe it) out of the salmon that will serve as the binder. Then you can quickly cook them in a skillet, bake them, or even grill them. Just use some foil if you cook them on the grill because if they stick at all, they may fall apart.

Directions

  1. Take the salmon and cut it into small chunks.
  2. Add 1/4 of the salmon to a food processor with the mustard, yogurt, lemon, and hot sauce. 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 about a 1/4 inch or so.
  4. Pour into a bowl and mix in the flaxseed meal, salt, pepper, and dill. Divide the mixture into burgers.
  5. Cook the burger for 3-4 minutes on each side in a nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray.
