I enjoy thinking about creating meals, and I get ideas at random times. One night, the idea for salmon burgers popped into my head before I was about to go to sleep. The process is simple, and the result is classy and delicious. You can top the burgers with a curry-mayo and serve with your choice of sides. In this case, I kept the burgers naked and paired them with mac and cheese.
1 large slab of salmon, chopped into big chunks
1/2 cup green peas
1 small onion
salt to taste
1 large lime wedge
mayo (desired amount)
curry paste or powder to taste
Put the salmon chunks, peas, onion, olive oil, salt, and freshly squeezed lime in the food processor and mix into a paste. If it’s too watery, pulse in small bits of bread to absorb the moisture. Shape the paste into patties.
Heat up olive oil in a grill pan or skillet and cook the patties until golden brown (about 5-10 min. a side).
Mix curry paste or powder into mayo to top the burgers.
