Salmon Burger BLTA

A perfect sandwich

Salmon Burger BLTA

Serves: 4 | Difficulty:

I’m a huge lover of BLTs and I really believe avocado goes with everything. Well, maybe not everything, but certainly sandwiches and a lot of salmon dishes. This sandwich combines all my favorites on an English muffin. It is a little messy to eat, but worth every bite. ~Chef Ali

1 pound salmon burger
2 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

4 strips bacon, cooked to desired doneness
1 avocado, sliced
½ cup ketchup
2 tablespoons chipotle paste, or chipotle in adobo, minced
4 leaves bibb lettuce
4 english muffins, toasted

For the patties:

In a food processor, lightly pulse salmon burger with mayonnaise and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Allow mixture to rest for 30 minutes to an hour. Divide burger mixture in 4 even patties. Sear patties in a large skillet over medium heat with olive oil. Cook patties for 2-3 minutes per side until firm and browned.

For the burgers:

Assemble burgers: place lettuce on english muffin, topped with bacon and a salmon patty. Combine ketchup and chipotle in a small bowl and spread atop the salmon patty. Add sliced avocado and top of english muffin.

For the side:

We enjoyed our burgers with potato chips and a side salad. Sweet potato fries are highly recommended, too.
