Recipe: Salmon Burgers with Pickled Cucumbers

Since we returned from vacation I’ve been on a cooking streak. All of that eating out made me long for some home cooked meals and the break from cooking actually made me miss being in the kitchen (a little bit).

I’ve tried several new recipes this past week and these salmon burgers with pickled cucumbers (fresh from our garden) are an absolute favourite. They were so delicious, we wanted to eat about ten each. Even little Roman, who has been quite picky lately, loved this meal. I adapted our salmon burgers from this recipe.

It’s a perfect summertime meal. The salmon burgers are so savory and the cucumbers are a perfect mix of crunchy & zesty.

If you’d like to make this delicious meal yourself, you’ll need:

1 pound skinless boneless salmon fillet, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped chives
3 chopped garlic cloves
1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
salt & pepper to taste
4 large hamburger buns

1 cucumber sliced into circles
4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon dill

crunchy mayo
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon Panko breadcrumbs

Pickle the cucumbers by combining the cucumbers, vinegar and dill. Salt to taste and set in refrigerator to chill for at least half an hour.

Add first seven ingredients to food processor. Blend until all ingredients are well mixed but salmon is still slightly chunky — just a few pulses. Stir in breadcrumbs and add salt & pepper to taste. Use mixture to make four patties.

Preheat oven to 350. Heat grill or grill pan (I used my stove top griddle) to medium heat. Grill patties until fish is cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer patties to a baking sheet and bake for 9 minutes. Meanwhile, toast hamburger buns.

Prepare crunchy mayo by combining mayo, soy sauce and Panko breadcrumbs. Mix until evenly combined.

When ready to serve, add mayo to the tops of your patties, place them on the toasted buns and add a bit of fresh lettuce. Add a scoop of the cucumbers to your plate and enjoy!

    never even heard of salmon burgers! and to be honest, just your title alone kinda turned me off to this recipe but I decided to give you/this the benefit of the doubt. don’t get me wrong, i like salmon but on a burger sounds weird. however, after reading through the ingredients and your instructions…sold! they sound surprisingly really good! we’re actually in the market for a food processor (bought an ice cream maker instead the other night) and I’ll definitely give these a try once we find one 🙂 -Misty

      Haha! I’ve always loved all things salmon + all things pickles, so I was definitely drawn to this recipe — but I can understand your initial reaction. 😉 Really good if you like this kinda stuff though.
