Wasabi Salmon Burgers

Bring out the flavors of salmon with a Japanese-inspired infusion of ginger, sesame oil and wasabi. If you serve these patties on whole-wheat buns, consider reduced-fat mayonnaise and sliced cucumbers as condiments. Or skip the buns and set the patties atop a vinegary salad of greens, carrots, radishes and sprouts.

Serves 4

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons wasabi powder, (see Note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 pound salmon fillet, skinned (see Tip)
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Whisk soy sauce, wasabi powder and honey in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.

Step 2

With a large chef's knife, chop salmon using quick, even, straight-up-and-down motions (do not rock the knife through the fish or it will turn mushy). Continue chopping, rotating the knife, until you have a mass of roughly 1/4-inch pieces. Transfer to a large bowl. Add scallions, egg, ginger and oil; stir to combine. Form the mixture into 4 patties. The mixture will be moist and loose, but holds together nicely once the first side is cooked.

Step 3

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the patties and cook for 4 minutes. Turn and continue to cook until firm and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Spoon the reserved wasabi glaze evenly over the burgers and cook for 15 seconds more. Serve immediately.
