Irish Organic Salmon Burger BBQ Burren Smokehouse Photo: PixabayIt is summer, and in terms of food, this is our chance now to cook out in the open - on the barbecue! If you think you are limited to cooking just meat on the grill, try this recipe. Very easy to prepare in advance, you can simply grill the salmon patties on a bit of tinfoil.

For 8 burgers

Ingredients:

60g red pepper, diced
60g yellow pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
80g breadcrumbs
1kg Burren cold Smoked Irish Organic Salmon, finely chopped
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
8 burger buns
8 leaves of iceberg lettuce
8 slices of tomatoes

For the sesame mayonnaise:

250ml mayonnaise
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp soy sauce

Method:

In a medium bowl, combine pepper pieces, bread crumbs, garlic and the small pieces of smoked salmon.

In a small bowl, combine the egg, soy sauce, lemon juice, and salt, and mix it well until it is smooth. Add the mix to the pepper/salmon mixture, stirring everything gently to combine. Form mixture into 8 patties.

For the sesame mayonnaise, combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl, cover and chill.  The mix will yield about 1 cup.

Lightly grease a sufficiently big piece of tinfoil and put it on the hot barbecue grill. Transfer the salmon patties onto the tinfoil and heat them over medium-high heat until hot and done, about 5 minutes per side.

Spread the sesame mayonnaise evenly over toasted buns. Top each with a lettuce leaf, tomato slice, and salmon patty. Cover with tops of the buns.
