Salmon Patties

I saw a segment of “Mr. Food” the other day and he was making some salmon burgers.  I had to give this a try.  I really was intrigued; I’d always used canned salmon for this type of thing but he was using raw salmon.  Nice texture and pretty good flavor although next time I will kick up the seasoning a bit; the dill sauce I served it with did though make up for any lack of flavor in the patty itself.

  • 1 pound raw salmon; skinless and boneless
  • 2 slice bread
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh dill
  • 1 jalapeno chopped
  • 1 Tbs diced onion
  • juice of one lemon
  • a dash or two of salt and pepper

Add all ingredients to food processor and pulse several times to combine; careful not to over process.

Form into patties (I made 4).  In large skillet heat over medium high heat and add a bit of oil.  Cook patties for about 3 minutes each side until cooked through.

Grilled Pork Burgers

I can’t resist a good pork burger. I like mine simple.  I don’t add fillers, just meat patties with seasonings.  We love to grill too.  Charcoal is our way to go.  I didn’t used to think I cared for charcoal; lighter fluid is rather pungent; then I discovered the natural wood briquettes and I don’t buy anything else.  No starters needed just a chimney or a nice mound will do.  No matter your grill preference don’t hesitate to try pork next time the burger mood hits.

Pork Burgers for 4

  • about 2 pounds ground pork unseasoned
  • buns
  • a grill and charcoal (or propane if desired)
  • toppings of choice ~ today I went with avocado

Begin by warming up grill; once nice and hot make sure grates are clean and ready to use.

Form pork into 4 equal sized patties. Season as desired; we used salt, pepper, and cayenne.

Place patties on hot grates; grill for about 7 – 10 minutes per side depending on size of patties and heat of grill.  You want pork burgers on the medium well side but not dried out so adjust heat and time as needed.

Remove from grill when ready and allow to rest for a few minutes before digging in.
