I hosted four friends for lunch – on a weekday! In part, I was celebrating the fact that I had a few days off between gigs. I am excited to have a new position that also allows me to work from home. I have several friends who work from home too, so I invited them over for a mid-day champagne break. And on the side, we had salmon burgers.
Here’s what you need and what to do.
2 lbs salmon filet
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger
chopped green onions
2 tbsp soy sauce
salt to taste
2 egg whites
kaiser rolls (your choice: gluten free or gluten full)
Cut salmon into small bite-sized pieces and place in bowl. Add ginger, soy sauce, and green onions. Add in egg whites and mix well. Form into patties and place in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
For sauce: add sriracha into mayonnaise to taste. Mix well
Place patties into hot, oiled frying pan and cook about 6-7 minutes on each side. Serve salmon on roll and top with sriracha mayo sauce.
Pour yourself some champagne and enjoy!

Warning: this is for all the people who still eat gluten, or as in my case, still serve gluten to others!
A few weeks ago, we hosted a small dinner party for six and served these pies as the main protein. Instead of serving a burger on a plain bun, try puff pastry!
Once you make your hamburger, I made mine with jalepenos and cheddar, all you have to do is place the cooked burger in a square of puff pastry and fold in each corner of the dough to meet in the middle. I didn’t make the dough from scratch and instead used Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheets. Then, I just brushed the tops with a little egg white for sheen and baked them in the oven at 400°F for 25 minutes until golden brown.
I served them along with mashed sweet potatoes and oven roasted broccoli and it turned out to be a hit! Let me know if you give it a try!
