1 pound fresh, raw salmon (skinless or skin removed)
1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons bbq sauce
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
4 whole wheat buns
Add salmon to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until it’s somewhat ground.
Remove and add salmon to a bowl with remaining ingredients (except for buns!) and mix with a spoon until just combined. Form into 4 equally-sized burgers. Heat a skillet (or grill) over medium-high heat and cook burgers on each side until golden – about 3-4 minutes per side.
Serve with additional BBQ sauce, lettuce and red onion for topping.
