Salmon Burgers

14 Oct

I cooked dinner last night, just the second time since the arrival of my parents! I hope to share some of my mum’s cooking with you in time.

This salmon burger is easy to put together and cooks quick too. It uses fresh salmon and ground pork with potatoes and onions for extra bite. I make it with leftover grilled salmon too. My family likes these burgers including hubby who is not a fish fan. Hope you’ll like them too!

Salmon Burgers
(Adapted from Harumi’s Japanese Cooking)

12 oz fresh salmon, skinless and bonelesss
1 small onion, diced
1 tablespoon butter
1 small potato, peeled
4 oz ground pork (I use chicken)
1 egg, beaten
Salt and pepper

1. Chop salmon finely until it is almost ground.

2. Lightly cook chopped onions in the butter, taking care to retain the onion’s crisp texture. Leave to cool.

3. Boil the potato or microwave it till cooked. Mash and leave to cool (do not add any butter or milk).

4. In a large bowl, mix the chopped salmon and ground pork. Add the cooked onion, mashed potato and beaten egg, then season with salt and pepper.

5. Shape the mixture into small burgers. Heat some oil in a frying pan. Working in batches, fry the burgers for 2-3 minutes on each side till browned and the meat is cooked.

6. Serve with Ponzu sauce (or mix light soy sauce with lemon juice) or mayonnaise with coarsely ground black pepper.

    These really look delicious and I can’t wait to give them a try. I love fish cakes and I know these would quickly disappear from my table. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

    Your salmon burgers look really good! I’ve made salmon cakes before, but I’ve never mixed it with pork. This is something I’d like to try. 🙂

    Hi KY, Sorry for the blunders in the recipe! I have corrected it, thanks! Luckily you did get the measurement from the internet! Hope you enjoy the chicken! Have a great weekend! 🙂

    Neat idea! Never occur to me to make patties out of mixing pork and fish together. I can imagine the sturdier texture offer by the pork can help with the salmon. Now I want to try making it too!

    Hi Yng, these are just the thing to get my family eating more fish, thanks! But… When do yo add in the salmon? Think you missed that out in your recipe….

    Hi KY!
    Thanks for stopping by! You must be really busy with Christmas shopping, preparation and everything else! It is nice to know that your parents are still there with you! Not to worry about blogging, take your time, but hope that you will be back in action pretty soon! (wink!!)
    Wish you “A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS”. May your family have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful year ahead!
    I’ll be going to my sis for Christmas for great food and presents! There will be quite a crowd, around 30 and they are all family members! Hehe! (Aiyoh, “beli presents poket kosong”, but so worth it!!)
    See you, my friend!! 🙂
