Yield Makes 4 burgers
Buy fresh, firm salmon fillets, and, using tweezers, remove any small bones before chopping. Japanese-style coarse bread crumbs--a.k.a. panko--make for a lighter, fluffier burger. 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound skinless salmon fillets, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup panko
  • 1 large egg white
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

How to Make It

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse salmon, panko, and egg white until salmon is finely chopped.

  2. Form salmon into 4 (4-inch) patties; season with salt and pepper.

  3. Heat grill to medium-high; cook, turning once, until burgers are just cooked through (5-7 minutes per side). Serve with desired toppings and buns.
