Honey Mustard Salmon Burgers with Smoky Asado AioliPosted: October 7, 2012
Hello Readers! Sorry I’ve been AWOL for a little while. School is definitely starting to catch up to me. As a way to cap off summer and BBQ season, I decided to make one last burger-type item.
I had this large salmon filet in the freezer from our last Costco run; it was a great way to end a fantastic summer of BBQ favorites.
My food processor has definitely seen it’s fair share of goodies since I got it. This one was no exception. I diced the salmon, added honey, mustard, rosemary and whole mustard seeds.
Then I blended it up nice and fine.
Next, I added breadcrumbs until the burgers stayed together nicely.
I formed them into patties and brushed each side with Mighty Trio Organic‘s canola oil.
Onto the grill they went, until nice and crispy.
I served them with a fantastic smoky asado aioli that I made using Elaine Wilson‘s Smoky Asado spice blend, mayo and lemon juice. It sent so well with these burgers!
I also served them on my savoury whole wheat flatbread, (which turned out GREAT, btw!)
