Fresh Salmon-Cilantro Burgers
Skip the beef and serve a Mexican-inspired salmon burger topped with a fresh lime-cilantro mayonnaise sauce. Cook the salmon patties in a skillet to enjoy this hearty burger year-round. A spinach salad with a sweet, slightly spicy Asian-influenced dressing makes a tasty accompaniment.
