Salmon Burger Fail


Have you ever made salmon burgers before? I made them for the first time a few weeks ago after seeing Paula make them on her show. I felt so chef-y as I ground the salmon up in the food processor from Whole Paycheck (Whole Foods) then added in the garlic, ginger, and other ingredients.

But then I grilled them and took a bite. To be fair there was nothing wrong with them. The seasoning was good and it tasted okay but for some reason I couldn't get over the fact I was eating ground up salmon. Do I need therapy? I can eat grilled salmon until the cows come home but for some reason this geeked me out.

Oh well. Onward and upward...

Hey, kiddo, there's no reason in the world why a salmon burger has to be ground meat. Join in my recipe fix gang via my website. I'm the "Recipe Whisperer," and I have the solution for you. It's free, and in return I ask only that you make some suggestions about things that bug me (if you have them).

I've actually never made salmon burgers, but I have eaten them. The burgers I've had were more flaked than ground, but I don't know how it all stayed together... interesting! And I don't think you need therapy.. at least not because of the salmon burger :)

StephenC - thanks! I'll check it out! To be fair, the recipe was a good one - I just didn't love the idea of seeing how it came together.

Jenn - I'm thinking it was the 'never watch how sausage is made' phenomenon. From now on I'll order my salmon burgers out instead;)
