Salmon Burger with Yogurt-Dill Sauce – Everyday Food with Sarah Carey



Don’t feel like turning on the grill tonight? You don’t have to! Today’s summery dinner is a broiled salmon burger served with a creamy yogurt-dill sauce. Making these burgers couldn’t be easier: Just add all of your ingredients to a food processor, pulse, and then form into patties. Enjoy!

Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
While not as controversial as cilantro, dill is an herb that is not universally loved. If you’re not a fan, substitute much-milder-tasting parsley in its place (the two are similar enough that the dish’s flavor profile won’t be compromised).

1 pound skinless salmon fillet, finely diced 1 tablespoon prepared white horseradish 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1 large egg, lightly beaten 3 scallions, thinly sliced 2 tablespoons plain dried breadcrumbs Coarse salt and ground pepper 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted Romaine lettuce, for serving

To finely dice salmon without crushing it, start by thinly slicing the fillet with a sharp knife. Cut the slices lengthwise into strips, then crosswise.

Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. In a medium bowl, combine salmon, horseradish, lemon zest and juice, egg, scallions, breadcrumbs, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; mix gently with a fork.

Form salmon mixture into four 3 1/2-by-1-inch patties; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil without turning until browned on top and opaque throughout, 6 to 7 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine yogurt and dill in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Serve burgers on buns with yogurt-dill sauce and lettuce.
