Salmon Burgers For Summer
During the summer, everyone seems to be lighting up their grill. While the barrage of burgers and hot dogs is great for a time, after a couple of months of eating these heavy foods you might be ready for an alternative, healthy option. Fortunately, you can get it! For a fresh twist on the classic burger, whip up this recipe for a delicious salmon burger to enjoy this summer.
To make them, you will need:
- 1 cup of finely chopped red onion
- ½ cup of thinly sliced fresh basil
- 1 1-pound skinned salmon fillet, chopped
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- ¼ teaspoon of black pepper
- 1 tablespoon of hot sauce
- 1 egg white
- Cooking spray
- 8 slices of focaccia
- Your favorite burger toppings (e.g. sliced tomato, lettuce, sliced onion)
In a large mixing bowl, combine the onion, basil, salmon, salt, and pepper, mixing with your hands until well blended. In a separate, small bowl, whisk together the hot sauce and egg white. Add it into the salmon mixture and mix well.
Separate the salmon mixture into four patties about a ½ inch thick. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat it over medium-high. Add the patties and cook until done (about 3 minutes each side). Meanwhile, toast your focaccia.
Serve the patties sandwiched between the focaccia with your favorite toppings and enjoy! Personally, we love a squeeze of lemon and a few capers to really zest up this burger.
