Recipe Ingredients for Salmon Burgers

1 pound wild salmon fillet, skinned
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion, or scallion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon ginger, finely chopped and peeled
1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Recipe Directions for Salmon Burgers

  1. With a large chef?s knife, chop salmon using quick, even, straight-up-and-down motions (do not rock the knife through the fish or it will turn mushy) until you have a mass of roughly 1/4-inch pieces. Transfer to large bowl and gently stir in onion (or scallion), cilantro, ginger, salt and pepper, being careful not to overmix. Divide the mixture into 4 patties, about 1 inch thick. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes (or up to 2 hours) before cooking.

  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the burgers and cook until browned on both sides and just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes total. Serve with 1 tablespoon Green Goddess Sauce each.

  3. Tips & Notes

  4. Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 1, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.

  5. * Tip: Place salmon fillet on a clean cutting board, skin side down. Starting at the tail end, slip the blade of a long, sharp knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding the skin down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30 angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.
