Two of my great loves— salmon and burgers— combined into these summery salmon cake sliders (with homemade buns!) I’m sharing as part of Burger Week. Read on to find more great recipes from some of your favorite food bloggers, plus find out how you can enter to win a brand new outdoor grill!
While I wasn’t exposed to a wide variety of seafood growing up, I learned pretty early on to love salmon. Salmon cakes have always been a favorite in our family, and it’s a dish my Mom often makes when we get together.
Her recipe has evolved over the years, from it’s humble beginnings using canned salmon into a copycat from a local Seattle restaurant where the chef was kind enough to share his secrets. And our love for them has only grown.
With these sliders I’m taking my Mom’s salmon cakes one delicious step further— stuffing them between two buns and calling it a (mini) burger.
These salmon cakes start with flaked poached salmon and are flavored with fresh basil and cilantro, onions, and lemon zest. An egg and panko bread crumbs hold them together while they brown and crisp in a skillet.
On their own the salmon cakes are phenomenal, but the sliders are even better than the sum of its parts. For the buns I made a smaller version of my favorite homemade burger buns and a simple lemon aioli, lettuce and tomato complete the ensemble.
You might not need your grill for these sliders, but they still scream summer. Light, fresh, and perfect for a warm summer day.
I can’t wait to make these for my Mom!
