Salmon Burgers

In a food processor put:

About 1.5# raw salmon, bones removed, cut into 1” cubes

2 Tbsp. black sesame seeds

¼ cup chopped green onion

2 Tbsp. soy sauce

1 Tbsp. sambala (it’s a spicy Asian condiment—use your own judgement—easy to find, very common)

Form into patties and fry in a little olive oil until done.

Serve on toasted (and perhaps buttered) buns with Aioli Sauce (ingredients follow) and sliced cucumber, sprouts, tomato, cabbage, whatever.

 Aioli Sauce: Mayo, lime juice, garlic powder, Dijon mustard. Mix together.

Put salmon chunks with into food processor.

Add green onions, soy sauce, black sesame seeds, sambala. Whir until well mixed.

Form into patties. If you occasionally wet your hands, the fish won’t stick to them as much.

Fry in a little olive oil.

Serve on a buttered, toasted bun with Aioli Sauce and favorite veges (cabbage, lettuce, tomato, cucumber). My favorite is English cucumber slices and tomato.
