Salmon Burgers with Citrus Herb Sauce


Extra-virgin olive oil

4 hamburger buns, split

4 leaves butter lettuce

2 yellow heirloom tomatoes or red garden tomatoes, each cut into 4 slices



1 skinless salmon fillet, about 1 pound, pin bones removed, cut into 1-inch pieces

¾ cup panko bread crumbs

¼ cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons finely chopped shallot

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper



2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil leaves

1½ tablespoons capers, drained and finely chopped

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Freshly grated zest of 1 orange



1. In a food processor 2013_05_30_15_16_40_row_seafood_23_960x640pulse the salmon pieces five to ten times until coarsely chopped (but not finely chopped). Transfer the salmon to a large bowl. Add the remaining patty ingredients, including ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, and stir gently to combine. With wet hands, form four patties of equal size, each about ¾ inch thick. Arrange the patties on a platter, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.

2. In a medium bowl mix the sauce ingredients, including ¼ cup oil, and season with salt and pepper.

3. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

4. Brush the cooking grates clean. Lightly brush the patties on both sides with oil. Grill the patties over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until nicely browned, 6 to 8 minutes, carefully turning once. During the last minute of grilling time, toast the buns, cut side down, over direct heat.

5. Build each burger on a toasted bun with lettuce, a patty, tomato slices, and sauce. Serve warm.

Summer is coming to a close, finish with a bang and serve your guests these mouth-watering salmon burgers. Let us know how it goes!
