Perfect Salmon Burgers
This Food Network recipe is simple to prepare and will tantalize your tastebuds. Here’s what you’ll need to make four burgers:

1 ¼ pounds fresh salmon
1 cup plus two tablespoons Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 scallions, chopped
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Kosher salt and black pepper

Follow these steps:
1. Cut three quarters of the salmon into quarter-inch pieces and place in a large bowl.
2. Place the remaining one quarter of salmon, mustard, mayonnaise, lemon juice and zest and cayenne pepper into a food processor and pulse to combine the ingredients together into a paste.
3. Pour this puree into the bowl of diced salmon.
4. Add scallions, two tablespoons of Panko, ½ a teaspoon of salt and black pepper and gently mix until combined.
5. Place parchment paper onto a baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Using damp hands, divide the mixture into four equal-sized mounds and shape into patties that are four inches wide and three-quarters of an inch thick.
6. Cover the patties with plastic wrap and leave them to chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
7. Dump the remaining cup of Panko onto a plate.
8. Press each side of the salmon patties into the Panko to coat completely.
9. In a nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Place the patties in and cook until the bottom is browned, which should take about three to four minutes. Flip them over and cook until the other side is browned. When the patties feel springy to the touch, they are ready to go.
10. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and season with salt to taste.
11. Serve with toasted brioche buns, tartar sauce and arugula for a delicious twist on the traditional burger.
