This is something that looks very yummy and that I will have to try soon. Means I'll have to tag less LOL I'm sharing with you. It's for the barbecue but I guess it can be done in a skillet. From Coup de Pouce
- 1⁄2 cup light mayonnaise
- 1⁄3 cup tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons capers, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 dash Tabasco sauce
- 1 lb salmon fillet
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons plain breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh black pepper
- 8 slices rye bread or 4 whole wheat hamburger buns
- 4 lettuce leaves
- In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, tomatoes, parsley, capers, lemon juice and tabasco. Set aside. (This can be prepared in advance and cover it. It will be good up to 6 hours in the fridge).
- Put salmon fillet, skin side down, on a cutting board. Beginning by the tight side, with a knife, do a light incision between the skin and the flesh, to be able to hold the skin. Holding the skin firmly and putting the knife down and inclined, pull on the skin from the exterior in a movement of backwards and forwards. Cut the salmons in pieces.
- In food processor, mix salmon, 1/4 cup of the reserved tartar mayonnaise, onion, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper until salmon is finely chopped. Shape the mixture in 4 burgers of 3/4 inch thickness. (You can prepare the burgers in advance and put in an hermetic container, separating them with wax paper between each. They will be good up to the next day in the fridge).
- Set the barbecue to medium heat. Put the salmon burgers on an oiled grill and close the cover. Cook for about 10 minutes or until golden (flip them at mid-cooking).
- Meanwhile, put the slices of bread on the grill of the barbecue and cook 3 minutes or until lightly crispy (flip at mid-cooking). Put 4 slices of bread on a work surface. Garnish each one with a lettuce leaf, then with the salmon burger and remaining of tartar mayonnaise (divided in the 4). Cover with the other slices of bread.
Delicious! Might add some fresh rosemary next time. Will definitely make again.
This made for a really delicious salmon burger. I cooked my patties in the fry pan but otherwise did as per recipe. The sauce was a different slant on tartare sauce in that it had tomato (a first for me in this style of sauce) but no cornichons/gherkins but the touch of tabasco was magic and bought it all together to marry with the salmon pattie, which I put in a wholemeal/wholegrain bun (though I didn't toast it, just buttered) and made a delicious dinner, thank you Boomette, made for Everyday A Holiday.
Since we eat salmon at least 4-5 times a month, this was MOST DEFINITELY A NICE CHANGE FROM THE USUAL BURGERS, & a great new way to serve salmon! I'll certainly be taking these to our next 'burger bash' when 8-10 of us get together to share a variety of burgers, all the way from vegetarian thru chicken, & now to salmon! We make them in a smaller size so that everyone who wants can have a variety without over-stuffing themselves! Definitely a recipe to keep on hand! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Gimme 5 tag]
