  • Currently 4/5
Another recipe from Rachel Ray that takes the burger to a new level - with salmon. These tasty burgers are reminicent of an everything bagel with locks and cream cheese. Serve with Rachel's Honey Dijon Potato Salad which I have also posted to this site.
4 (6 oz) fillets skinless salmon, cut into large chunks
1 Tbsp grill seasoning (recommended: Montreal Seasoning by McCormick)
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
3 Tbsps sesame seeds
3 Tbsps chopped fresh dill
1/2 cup softened cream cheese
3 scallions, whites and greens, chopped
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp lemon juice
Green leaf lettuce, for topping
Beefsteak or vine ripe tomato, sliced for topping
Red onion, sliced for topping
Crusty kaiser rolls, split and toasted
1. Preheat outdoor grill if using to medium high. Prepare hot grill with cooking spray. Indoors, use a large skillet rather than a grill pan and preheat with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil to medium-high heat.

2. Place salmon in food processor and pulse to coarse grind meat to form burgers. Transfer fish to a mixing bowl and season with grill seasoning, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and dill. Mix and form 4 patties. Drizzle the burgers with extra-virgin olive oil.
3. Cook burgers 3 minutes on each side for a pink center, 4 to 5 minutes on each side for fully cooked fish.
4. While burgers cook, combine in a bowl the cream cheese and the scallions and fold in sour cream and lemon juice.

5. Top the burgers with lettuce, tomato, onion and sauce on crusty, toasted buns.
