Salmon Burger with Cucumber Mustard-Dill Sauce


Created and presented by Myra Kornfeld

Salmon burgers are a fabulous way to eat this rich and healthful fish.
Subtle with fresh herb flavor, this quick and easy burger is equally delicious with or without a bun. The sauce is wonderful on poached salmon as well. Scale the recipe up or down as desired.
Serves 4 to 6

Burger
4 6-ounce portions wild Alaskan sockeye salmon, defrosted and finely chopped
3 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
4 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons minced shallots

Mustard sauce
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon minced shallots
2 tablespoons fresh dill
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1/4 cup organic extra virgin olive or macadamia nut oil
1/2 cucumber, peeled and seeded and cut into small dice (about 5 – 6 tablespoons)

Organic extra virgin olive, macadamia nut oil, or coconut oil for sautéing

  • Mix the salmon thoroughly in a medium bowl with the tarragon, dill, shallot, salt and pepper. Form into four patties and refrigerate until ready to cook.
  • Make the sauce: In a small bowl, mix together the mustard, shallots, dill, vinegar, olive oil, and cucumber. Set aside.
  • Warm the oil (enough to coat the bottom of the pan) in a large cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook about three minutes per side, until burgers are cooked through with a little pink in the middle.
  • Serve on or off the bun, slathered with cucumber sauce.
