Sassy Salmon Burgers with Savory Mint Sauce

There is nothing ho-hum about this light refreshing twist on the old salmon burger. These Sassy Salmon Burgers with Savory Mint Sauce are sensational.


1 small cucumber, peeled and sliced
½ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons fresh mint, coarsely minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 pound wild salmon fillet, skin and pin bones removed
1 large raw egg
2 large eggs, hard-boiled and sliced
⅓ cup green onions, finely chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 soft buns, or rolls split and toasted
12 fresh spinach leaves


Sprinkle cucumbers lightly with salt, let stand 10 minutes and then transfer to paper towels to drain. In a small bowl, whisk the sour cream, fresh mint, garlic and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Slice the salmon lengthwise into ¼-inch wide stripes and then cut into ¼-inch wide pieces. In a medium bowl, whisk the raw egg with the green onions and ¼ teaspoon salt. Stir in the salmon.

Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the salmon mixture in 4 mounds; gently press to form four patties. Cook 3 to 4 minutes. Carefully turn patties and cook without turning until done.

Divide the ingredients evenly, top the salmon patty with mint sauce, cucumber, sliced egg, spinach and top half of bun.
