Sweet and Savory…
These salmon burgers are a wonderful way to enjoy Branon’s Family Maple Syrup in a way that most people don’t normally think about. The rich, deep flavor of our organic maple syrup adds just the right amount of healthy sweetness to these delicious burgers.
Salmon Burger Ingredients
- 1 medium gold potato, peeled and finely diced 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium sweet onion finely diced
- 1 rib of celery finely diced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
- 1 pound wild salmon, coarsely chopped 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1/3 cup plus 1 cup panko bread crumbs 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Boil potatoes in 2 cups of boiling water until soft, about 10 minutes. Drain water and reserve potatoes.
- Heat oil in a skillet until it just begins to smoke. Cook onion and celery over medium heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Add potatoes and continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and thyme. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
- Stir in salmon, mayonnaise, and 1/3 cup panko into the onion mixture.
- Sprinkle the remaining panko onto a cookie sheet. If you have a large cookie cutter use it to shape the salmon mixture into 4 thick patties. If you do not have one just shape by hand. Press both sides of the patties into the panko.
- Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties until golden brown on both sides, about 4 – 5 minutes per side
Maple Teriyaki Glaze Ingredients
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup Branon Family Maple Syrup
- 1/4 cup sherry or chicken stock
- 1/4 cup mirin
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch moistened in 1 tablespoon of water
- Combine soy, syrup, sherry, mirin, hoisin, and vinegar in a medium sized pot and bring to a boil. Whisk in cornstarch and cook until thickened. Store leftover sauce in the refrigerator.
- To serve the salmon burgers, either serve on a hamburger buns with lettuce, tomato, and whatever other fixings you enjoy or over a green salad.
NOTES: This maple teriyaki sauce is good on everything. Try brushing on ribs, used in quick stir fry, or even as a base for a salad dressing.
You can make the salmon cakes the day before you cook them. Just be sure to store on top of the panko in your refrigerator.
