  • 1 pound salmon, skin and fat removed, cut in about 1/2-inch dice
  • 3 tablespoons finely diced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons chopped scallions
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon table grind pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup crushed panko breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil, for greasing
  • Curry Mayo Sauce, for serving, recipe follows
  • Hamburger buns, buttered and toasted
  • Asian Slaw, for serving, recipe follows
  • 4 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Thai curry paste
  • 1/4 tablespoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Juice of 1 1/2 limes
  • 3 1/2 ounces rice wine vinegar
  • 3 ounces ponzu sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • Pinch black pepper
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • 2 seedless cucumbers, peeled, seeded and julienned

Step 1

Combine the diced salmon with the ginger, scallions, salt, pepper and egg in a mixing bowl and mix well. Form the salmon into 4 equal patties, and coat the tops and bottoms with the crushed breadcrumbs. 

Step 2

Lightly oil a grill or griddle over medium heat. You will want to cook a small portion of the mixture to test for seasoning and then adjust with salt and pepper, as needed. Cook the patties, about 2 minutes per side. 

Step 3

Slather 1 ounce of the Curry Mayo Sauce on the bottom bun, and top with the salmon burger, Asian Slaw and top bun and serve.

Step 4

Combine the mayonnaise, curry paste, salt, cayenne and lime juice in a mixing bowl and mix well. Taste for acid and seasoning, and adjust with more salt and lime juice, if needed.

Step 5

It is best to make the slaw ahead of time and let sit for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to really blend together. 

Step 6

Combine the rice wine vinegar, ponzu, sugar, salt, pepper, lime juice, cucumbers, peppers and cabbages in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Taste for acid and seasoning and adjust with lime and salt, if needed.
