Did someone say naked? We love this recipe! Some burgers are just meant to be eaten without a bun. These salmon burgers are the perfect example. Eat up…these are some of the best protein you can eat for your fit bariatric lifestyle!
For the Spicy Sriracha Mayo:
3 tbsp light mayonnaise (Hellman’s)
1 tbsp sriracha
For the salmon patties:
1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, diced
6 tbsp panko
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pound wild salmon fillet
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
4 cups baby arugula
4 oz avocado, sliced
*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 the salmon with the bell peppers, panko and garlic.
In a small bowl, combine egg white, soy sauce, lemon juice, and salt; add to salmon mixture, tossing gently to combine.
*Form mixture into 4 patties and refrigerate at least one hour, this will help the burgers become firm and hold together during cooking.
*Lightly coat a grill 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!
