Fish Burger with Sauteed Mushrooms and onions

"Lets Flip Burgers"

Tonight's Menu
Salmon Burger
Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions
Baby Spinach salad
Wine Pairing: Light Reds (Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc) 

Raspberry Beer

Summer bar-be-que just isn't complete without burgers. Could be any type- fish, chicken, lamb or even veggie ones.
Today we made salmon burgers. The mushrooms and onions sauteed in butter served over the burger gives a rich flavor and enhances the smokiness. Dress the burger anyway you like with mayonnaise, hot sauce, sliced cheese, but it tastes great as is. i used whole wheat kaiser buns instead of the regular burger buns. kaiser buns have a better texture and body.
I served a simple baby spinach salad with cranberries and pecans dressed with a simple vinaigrette. You can add your fave dressing.

Salmon Burgers
Ingredients: (Makes 4 ) 
1lb salmon fillet skinned
3 cloves garlic
1/2 red onion chopped fine
1 egg
salt to taste
Dash of chilli sauce
1 tsp dry dill
2 tbsp dry breadcrumbs
fresh parsley or coriander chopped finely
1 tsp lime juice
4 Kaiser Buns
  1. Cut salmon into small chunks and in a food processor pulse together salmon, garlic.
  2. Take the mixture out in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and shape into 4 (2cm thick) patties. layer them between wax paper and refrigerate for 15 minutes. These patties could be made ahead and stored in an airtight container for up to 24 hours. 
  3. Place them on a greased grill over medium high heat. cook with lid closed and turn after 5-6 minutes. Cook on the other side for another 5 minutes until internal temperature of 70C is reached.
  4. Serve in between sliced kaiser bun topped with sauteed onions and mushrooms and any other condiment desired--mayonnaise, hot sauce, etc.

Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions
  1. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet. Add 1 large sliced red onion and saute till pink.
  2. Add sliced mushrooms and turn the contents around so that they all get coated with butter. Let cook without disturbing for about 2-3 minutes on one side. 
  3. Do not add any salt yet as it will make the mushrooms water and prevent them from browning. 
  4. Turn the mushrooms over and cook on the other side till rich golden brown.
  5. Season with salt and cracked black pepper. Serve hot over the burger.
