Salmon... it's what's for dinner!

 We are a family 
that LOVES salmon!  
In fact, salmon usually 
graces our table at least once a week.
It is usually served with baked sweet potatoes, or steamed broccoli or other veggies.
Sometimes, it's just grilled up and put on top of our green salad.

However, it's always a treat when we take our salmon,
grind it up and make it into delicious burgers!
(both of my boys chose this for their birthday dinners these past two years). 

From baking the buns to making the burgers...
every step is SO easy!
AND, best of all, they are 
delicious, healthy and something that tastes like a restaurant!

Yummy BBQ Salmon Burgers 
1 pound fresh salmon (I buy frozen salmon filets and just defrost and then pull off the skin if it still has the skin on)
1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs 
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, OR, Asiago Cheese 
2 Tbsp. BBQ sauce 
1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard 
3 cloves garlic finely minced.  
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt 
1 tsp. onion powder 
(homemade buns HERE for recipe) 

Put salmon in a food processor and pulse until it's slightly ground.
Put salmon in a large metal bowl and add in other ingredients mix until combined. 
(I just use my hands so I can get everything all blended together really good). 
Form into 4-6 patties (depending upon how large you want them).
Heat a large skillet (add in a drop or two of olive oil). 
Put patties in skillet and cook on medium-high heat for 4 minutes on each side.
YUMMIEST when served on homemade buns, 
with mayo and LOTS of BBQ sauce.
Also, top with lettuce, red onions and tomatoes!

If you like salmon,
if you like burgers, 
you'll be sure to love these!
Enjoy a taste of heaven today!
