salmon burgers with tarragon mayo

December 5, 2010

Last night I was invited to a girls dinner where we all cooked recipes from the fish cooking class at Come Back to the Table in November.  It was so much fun!! It reminded me that I hadn’t posted some of the easy and yummy recipes I hope you all try.  Here is one of my favorites:

Fresh Salmon Burgers with Tarragon Mayonaise

1 lb. fresh wild salmon, skin removed

4 green onions, rough chopped

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. fresh lemon joice

1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

1 tsp. prepared horseradish

½ tsp. salt

Fresh ground pepper

½ cup dry breadcrumbs

1bsp. butter

Combine salmon, green onions, lemon juice, tarragon, mustard, horseradish, salt and pepper, plus 3 tbsp. mayonnaise in a food processor and pulse to combine.  You want texture, not a puree.  Stir in the bread crumbs and form into 4 on inch patties. Meanwhile, prepare the tarragon mayonnaise.  Can be made early in the day.

Tarragon Mayonnaise*

1 cup mayo

¼ cup plain greek yogurt

4 green onions, sliced thinly

1 tbsp. fresh lemon joice

1 tbsp. fresh tarragon, chopped

2 tsp. Dijon mustard

2 tsp. prepared horseradish

* Mayo can be made 1 day ahead

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, adding salt and pepper to taste.  Can be made a day ahead.

Melt butter in a large skillet that will hold the patties without touching, and when hot, add the salmon patties.  Cook about 3-4 minutes per side, until firm to the touch and crusty brown on both sides.  Serve with the tarragon mayo.
