Chipotle Salmon Burgers

These are truly awesome! These burgers are rather fragile, so use a grill pan or a nonstick skillet. The patties should be shaped up to 8 hrs in advance & refrigerated, so the flavors can marry and cook just before serving. We used whole-wheat English muffins but ciabatta rolls or sesame hamburger buns will be fine. Cooking Light Magazine, June 2008 edition. Not accounted for in instructions.
