Salmon Burgers with Sesame-Soy Glaze

Salmon burgers are a tasty treat that you can make without needing a fancy grill. Imagine cooking them quickly under the broiler, and voila! The kitchen becomes your own stage, and these burgers take the spotlight without any fuss.

Making these burgers is like creating a delicious play. First, gather all the ingredients: fresh salmon, breadcrumbs, green onions, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and an egg. Mix them together in a big bowl, making four burger patties. It’s like shaping the characters of your play!

Now, it’s time to make the special glaze. Mix soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and ginger in a pot. Heat it up until it gets a little thick, like the exciting plot of your story.

Place your salmon patties on a baking sheet and brush them with the glaze. Slide them under the broiler, and watch them cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side. They’ll turn crispy and golden, just like the climax of your play.

While your burgers are cooking, let’s make a cool cucumber salad. Slice the cucumber really thin and mix it with rice vinegar, sugar, sesame seeds, and a bit of salt. It’s like a refreshing intermission in your play!

Now, assemble your burgers. Toast the buns under the broiler for a minute or two. Put a salmon patty on each bun, drizzle with more glaze, and top it with the cucumber salad. It’s like the grand finale, where everything comes together for a delicious ending.

And there you have it – a fantastic play of flavors on your plate, with salmon burgers taking the lead role! Enjoy your meal!
