Directions See How It's Made
- Prepare the salsa first to allow time for the flavors to blend. Mix all of the salsa ingredients in a small bowl and chill, covered, for at least half an hour.
- Using a food processor fitted with a metal blade, pulse salmon until coarsely ground. Add egg and pulse until well mixed. Transfer salmon mixture to a bowl. Add garlic, ginger, green onion, cilantro, sesame oil, soy sauce, fish sauce and chili flakes and mix together thoroughly. Shape salmon mixture into 12 small patties and refrigerate, covered, for at least half an hour.
- In a non-stick pan heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Fry salmon patties until lightly browned on one side, about 2-3 minutes. Flip patties over and cook until lightly browned on the other side, about 2 minutes. Check to see patties are cooked through. This may be done in batches.
- Toast rolls if desired and spread with butter or mayo or both. Place one patty on each roll and top with a tablespoon or two of salsa.
