Hawaiian Jalapeno Salmon Burger

Hawaiian Jalapeño Salmon Burger with Sriracha Aioli

Summer wouldn’t be complete without BBQs and burgers. With leftover salmon in the fridge, I was inspired to make a burger that was a spin on classic flavors. I love foods that offer a balance between spicy, sweet, and savory. This burger does just that.

Burgers

  • 1 pound skin-less wild salmon fillet, chilled in the freeze for about an hour
  • 1/4 cup scallions, diced
  • 1-2 jalapeños, minced
  • 2 Tbsp plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp tabasco sauce
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • pinch of coarse salt and black pepper
  • 4 pineapple slices, 1/2 inch thick (core removed)
  • 1 1/2 cups arugula
  • Hamburger buns (I used Udi’s Gluten-free hamburger buns)

Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup mayo or plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp sriracha
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 fingered pinch of salt
  1. Whisk together the aioli ingredients. Cover and refrigerate to let the flavors meld.
  2. Heat BBQ to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or medium-high.
  3. Take the salmon out of the freezer and cut into 1/3 inch chunks.
  4. In a medium bowl, gently mix the salmon, scallions, jalapeño, yogurt, tabasco, egg, salt and pepper.
  5. Divide the salmon mixture into quarters and shape into burgers with a rubber spatula or your hands.
  6. Once the BBQ is hot, gently place the salmon patties and the pineapple slices on the grill. Cook the patties for 5 minutes on each side, or until an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook pineapple until warm and soft, about 3-5 minutes on each side.
  7. If desired, toast the hamburger buns on grill
  8. Spread aioli on bun. Add arugula, salmon patty, and grilled pineapple. Enjoy!

Santé!
