Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: Asian
Serves: 4
  • 1½ pounds wild salmon, skinless
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped fine
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped fine
  • 2 green onions, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon gochujang paste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons mirin
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  1. Place salmon in freezer for 20 minutes. This is so the fish hardens up a little bit and makes it easier to chop up.
  2. Chop salmon into ⅛"-1/4" pieces.
  3. Add egg to large bowl and whisk until it's thoroughly beaten.
  4. Add salmon to the bowl along with the remaining ingredients.
  5. Use a large spatula to mix everything thoroughly.
  6. Let mixture rest for 5 minutes. This helps everything to come together and makes it stick together better when you're making the burgers.
  7. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions. Gently mold the fish mixture into 1" thick patties and place on a plate. Continue this with all of the mixture.
  8. Oil your grill pan and heat over medium heat.
  9. Once pan is hot, place your patties into the pan. Let them cook for 4-5 minutes per side.
  10. Serve burgers as is or on top of a big green salad.
