Ingredients

  • 1 pound skinless boneless salmon fillet, cut into 2" pieces
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • ½ teaspoon garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste or peeled and grated fresh ginger divided
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¹⁄³ cup panko Japanese bread crumbs
  • Organic canola or olive oil cooking spray
  • ¼ cup lite mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Asian garlic chili paste optional
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce or hoisin sauce
  • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns
  • 1 cup baby greens
  • 1 ripe tomato sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat broiler to medium-high and set the rack 4" from heat source.
  • In a food processor, pulse the salmon 3–4 times, just enough to rough chop, not puree. Make sure not to overprocess the salmon.
  • Place chopped salmon in a medium bowl and add cilantro, hoisin sauce, garlic, . teaspoon ginger, salt, pepper, and panko bread crumbs. Mix well.
  • Form chopped salmon into 4 patties. Place on a sheet pan lightly coated with cooking spray. Cover and refrigerate if using later.
  • Make the ginger aioli by whisking together the mayonnaise, Asian garlic chili paste, lemon juice, soy sauce, and remaining ginger.
  • Place salmon patties under broiler for 3–5 minutes on each side, or until just opaque.
  • To serve, place each patty on a whole-wheat bun and top with 1 teaspoon of ginger aioli. Top with baby greens and tomato slice.
  • For those who need to limit carbohydrates, eliminate the bun and serve with a side of baked sweet potato fries, which are high in fiber and lower on the glycemic scale.

For those who need to limit carbohydrates, eliminate the bun and serve with a side of baked sweet potato fries, which are high in fiber and lower on the glycemic scale.Excerpted from The Wellness Kitchen Copyright © 2015 by Westlake Wellbeing Properties, LLC and published by F+W Media, Inc.
