Salmon Burgers

I promised the other day that I’d share some recipes to fill those homemade hamburger buns. So this week I will be featuring a week of burger recipes! All sorts of patty-shaped-proteins to be served on a bun.

To kick things off, I’m going to feature the BEST salmon burger I’ve ever had. Literally the best. If this is the only recipe you make from my week of burgers, you’ll be a happy camper.

The burger combines some fillet of salmon with smoked salmon and a few other ingredients. The saltiness from the smoked salmon gives a great depth to this burger. It doesn’t need a bunch of fancy condiments or toppings because this patty is downright tasty.

I got 3 patties out of the recipe and had one leftover the next day for lunch. I ate it over a salad of spinach and tomato which was another great way to eat this guy.

The recipe comes from the little tear out booklet in the June issue of Food Network Magazine. I’ve only tried a few recipes from FNM, but I’ve enjoyed them all so far.

    BB – what is garam masala? What spices are in it (maybe I can recreate with what I already have).

    Mom-in-law: I buy garam masala at a small Indian market near our place. I did a quick Google and came up with this recipe.

    Would be helpful if the can size of the tomatoes were provided.
