Peter has been a fish lover for as long I have known him.  A few years ago, he had to stop eating fish for a while because his blood mercury level was too high from eating too much sushi at office lunches.  It goes to show that moderation is the key to good health.  Nowadays, we cook fish a few times a month and it always makes him very happy.

Ingredients:

For the Spicy Sriracha Mayo:

3 tbsp light mayonnaise (I used non-fat Fage)

1 pound wild salmon fillet (mine weighed 1.1 pound)

1 large egg

1tbsp minced red onion

Preparation:

Combine mayonnaise and sriracha, set aside.

Remove the skin from the salmon, and cut about a 4 oz piece off. Place in a food processor or chopper to finely chop. This will help hold the burgers together.  With a knife finely chop the remaining salmon.

In a medium bowl combine all ingredients for salmon patties and mix together. Form mixture into 4 to 5 patties and refrigerate at least one hour, this will help the burgers become firm and hold together during cooking.

Lightly coat a pan or skillet with cooking spray. Place over medium-high heat until hot. Cook the patties 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Place arugula on each plate, top each with salmon burger, 1 tbsp of mayo and avocado slices – enjoy!

  1. […] There were five different flavors of soup in the package and we tried Santa Fe Corn Chowder today with my healthy cornbread.  They were absolutely delicious together!  The hint of sweetness from the cornbread balances with the hint of spiciness of the soup.  As I tasted the flavorful soup, I imagined that the soup would go well with many of my recipes, such as Cauliflower Mac and Cheese, Quinoa Chickpea Avocado Salad or Salmon Burger.  […]
