Salmon Burgers With Cucumber-Jalapeño Salad

This summer, swap out your regular beef burgers for salmon patties.

At the height of grilling season, there’s nothing better than a burger. Delicate and full of flavor, these salmon burgers are destined to become the star of your summer cookouts. I top them with a drizzle of hot honey and a cucumber-jalapeño salad for extra zing.

| Preparation – Salmon Burgers | Preheat grill. Heat a small saucepan over medium heat; add olive oil. Once oil is shimmering, add onion and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook until translucent, approximately 5 minutes, and then transfer to a large heatproof bowl to cool. Add salmon, bread crumbs and egg to cooled onion mixture; using your hands, mix thoroughly. Divide mixture into five even patties; set on plates and place in refrigerator, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer chilled patties to grill and lightly season with salt and pepper; cook, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Remove from grill and set aside. Spread mayonnaise on both sides of the buns; place cut-side down on grill to toast, 1 to 2 minutes.

| Assembly | Layer each toasted bun with a salmon patty, a drizzle of hot honey and cucumber-jalapeño salad.
