Portobello Salmon Burgers

Published by at 10:00 pm under Cooking at Home,Friends

We try to incorporate more fish into our meals, but instead of the usual grilling of fish fillets, we wanted to make something more interesting for our daily diet. We took salmon fillets and threw it in a food processor to rough chop, and added a bunch of seasoning and ingredients to make a mean salmon burger. Our imaginations ran wild with what we had in the kitchen – portobello mushrooms, provolone cheese, arugula, English muffins, chipotle mayo… well, you get the idea. One thing lead to another and we had ourselves quite an eye-popping and gratifying dinner. I think our friends Cecille and Lan can vouch for that. :)  

We love our new kitchen Aid food processor! It's so sleek and sexy, don't you think? The efficiency and quietness of this processor is incredible. Anyway, I digress. We used about 5 oz of salmon and chopped it in cubes, then it went into the food processor to mince, but not too minced.

The salmon should have this kind of consistency. In to the mixing bowl, we added 2 chopped green onion, 1 tbsp cilantro, 2 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning, 1 egg white, 4 tbsp panko bread crumbs, 1 tsp garlic powder, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 cup roasted red peppers, 1 tbsp fresh basil, and 1 tsp pepper. (We got a little carried away, but everything went well together!). Oh, keep in mind this makes like 8 salmon patties.

Luckily we had some nice portobello mushrooms in the fridge, so it went perfectly with this burger. Season with some salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil and cook over the stove, flipping it so it cooks evenly, until soft.

We formed 1/2-inch thick patties and cooked it in a frying pan (you can also grill outside if you want to put the effort). Cook about 4 minutes on each side (depending on the thickness).

To complete our masterpiece, we toasted an english muffin, added the salmon patty with melted provolone cheese on top, then layered it with our Chipotle Aoili sauce we made (we mixed mayo with the Chipotle Garlic Sauce from All Spice Cafe we used for the previous post), tomato, argula from our backyard, and finally the portobello mushroom. What burger is complete without some fries? Sweet potato fries to be exact.

It's definitely a bit of a challenge working with fish to create a burger, but we successfully managed to make it moist and flavorful, for the sake of our friends who were there to test them!

    My mom made something similar to these when I was growing up. I was not fond of bell peppers, and wished she had made them like this. Hers were a little more fried, and she did not know how refined she was :) Yours look great. I have some salmon I need to use up and this is a great idea!

    This is a elegant alternative to a traditional burger– great way to switch things up!

    Scrumptious burgers with salmon and portabellas, yum!

  9. Tamaron 10 Dec 2009 at 10:04 am

    If you want to reduce the carbs, you can use bigger portobello mushrooms and use them to replace the bread. Yum!

    WOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!!!!! Everything, again, everything in this burger is wonderful!
    Portobello, arugula, chipotle, English muffin (instead of traditional burger bun), cheese……and the superb meat patty!!!!!!
    Cant get anything like that in any burger place!

    I’ve always wanted to try to make my own fish burger and salmon sounds like a great fish to work with for it. This looks great I’ll have to remember it when I get the chance!

    Oh yes, that sure is one super sexy food processor. Mine is the opposite of sexy, but it gets the job done I guess. Hmm.

    Fantastic burgers!

    That looks absolutely delish!

  27. Biancaon 16 Dec 2009 at 1:11 pm

    I love salmon, I love burgers! Thank you for this! I was getting tired of cooking fish the same way. Here’s to something different!
