Steps To Make Grilled Salmon Burgers

grilled salmon burgers
  1. Let’s start with the salmon. Take ¾ of the salmon and dice it into small pieces. You should keep them about ¼ inches thick. 
  2. Take the remaining ¼ portion of salmon and cut it into chunks. Put these chunks into a food processor to make a paste.
  3. Now mix the paste with the diced salmon. To this mixture, add scallions, mustard and mayonnaise. Add panko to this mixture. Panko helps the patties to bind and retain their shape. Also, add half a teaspoon of salt and black pepper each to season. Mix nicely to combine the ingredients.
  4. Divide the mix into 4 equal mounds. Place them on parchment paper. Make sure you brush the paper with enough olive oil.
  5. Now, pat down the mounds gently. Shape them to round patties that are about ¾ inches in thickness. Cover them with plastic wrap and keep them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  6. After you have taken out the patties, cover them in panko on both sides. The patties are now ready to be grilled.
  7. Preheat the grill. Now brush the patties with olive oil on both sides before placing them on the grill. Cook each side until they are brown. Once the outside looks crispy, but they are pink and flaky on the side, you should know the patties are done.
  8. Slice and toast the buns. Now place the patties on the buns. Top with tartar sauce, arugula and last but not least, slices of fresh cucumber.

The grilled salmon burger is ready to eat. It gives your tastebuds the tang and taste in just the right amount. In terms of nutritional value, here is a table you should check out.
