Wild Salmon Sliders

SalmonSliders

This weekend I decided to switch things up a bit and make Salmon Sliders. I often just bake salmon and serve with a side, but I wanted to make something else other than baked salmon. Since Sockeye Salmon is not my most favorite type of salmon, I thought that transforming it into something would be best. These salmon sliders are moist and flavorful. All the herbs give salmon lots of flavor. This is a great alternative to burgers, and much healthier too!

Ingredients

  • 4 slices Bacon
  • 1 1/2 pounds Wild Salmon, cut into chunks
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs, a combination of Green onions (or Chives), Parsley and Dill
  • 1 large clove Garlic, grated
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoons Lemon juice
  • Oil, for sauteing
  • Dinner rolls
  • Mayonnaise

For topping
Thinly sliced red onion
Sliced tomatoes

Directions

Heat oven to 375°F and bake bacon on slotted pan or parchment paper-lined baking sheet until crisp, about 18 minutes.

Place salmon pieces in a food processor and pulse a few times, until the mixture resembles ground meat. Place into a bowl and add egg yolk, herbs, garlic, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Form the sliders the size of the rolls or buns you will be using.
