Ingredients

  • 2 Whole wheat burger buns

For the burgers:

  • 250 gr Skinless salmon fillets HIGH QUALITY - pin bones removed
  • 30 gr Breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Capers
  • 3/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste

For the salsa:

  • 90 gr Ripe mango
  • 130 gr Ripe tomato
  • 25 gr Onion
  • Chili pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste

To finish:

  • Lettuce
  • Honey to taste
  • Dijon mustard to taste

Instructions

For the burger buns:

For the salsa:

  • Cut the mango, tomato and onion into small cubes.
  • Add chili pepper and salt. Set aside to let the flavors combine.

For the burgers:

  • Cut the skinless salmon fillets into chunks and add them to the container of your food processor.
  • Add breadcrumbs, desalted capers, mustard, black pepper and salt (just a pinch, capers should give flavor too)
  • Turn the food processor on and pulse. The goal is to have a roughly pureed mixture.
  • Form two patties by hand.
  • Heat a grill pan.
  • Grill your burgers a few minutes per side (don't overcook).
    NYT cooking suggests "to check for doneness, by making a small cut and peeking inside" - I cut my burger in two so I could see the doneness.

To finish:

  • Cut the bun in two parts. Put some lettuce on it.
  • Lay down the burger.
  • Add the mango salsa.
  • Garnish with a bit of honey and Dijon mustard, and put the top of the bun on top!
