Asian Salmon Burgers


Salmon Burger

I LOVE Costco, although I find that I’m not a great shopper because I can never make a list and stick to it. I’m always tempted by the tasting stations at the end of every other aisle. It’s really bad when I shop when I’m hungry. I’m almost guaranteed to come home with LOTS of things that weren’t on my list.

A couple of months ago, they were giving out samples of canned salmon mixed with mayonnaise, served on crackers. I was hungry, and it was delicious. I tossed four cans into my cart. They sat around for a while in my kitchen cabinet until I was flipping through the May 6th issue of Woman’s Day magazine. I get Woman’s Day because with four boys having annual magazine drives, I end up with a number of magazines that I wouldn’t normally buy. Magazine drives are like my trips to Costco, sometimes I can’t say no. Well, I was flipping through the magazine and I came across a page that talked about three different things to do with canned salmon. My interest was piqued. I hadn’t mixed the salmon with mayonnaise for lunch as I thought I would that day in Costco, so this page was perfect for me. I tried their recipe for Asian Burgers and now I’m going to make canned salmon a regular Costco purchase. It’s a great recipe for a weeknight as the preparation is quick and easy as long as you have the necessary ingredients in the house.

Asian Burgers
From Woman’s Day Magazine

14.5 oz. can of salmon
1/2 cup minced red bell pepper
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
1/2 cup sliced scallions
1 egg
1 tbsp. lime juice
1 tbsp. grated ginger

Mix ingredients together and form into four patties. Pan fry in a little olive oil for ~6 minutes, turning once, until lightly browned. Serve on buns with sprouts, sliced tomato and wasabi mayonnaise.*

* I served mine on a plate and it was delicious all on its own with a green salad on the side.

    This also would be a wonderful meal for when you take the boys to one of those Guilliard concerts, like you promised me you would do.

    This one’s definitely a keeper. We also served it without a bun alongside a salad. It takes little effort to make and delivers a lot of taste.
