I wasn't too impressed with this salmon burger recipe. I used a silver salmon which was mild enough to let the flavors of the sauces and radishes come through. The ginger mayo was super gingery but still okay, and the radishes pickled quickly to the point of being too soft, yet they were still warm from the marinade, even after chilling 30 minutes as specified in the recipe.
