Salmon Burgers with Dill Sauce

Directions

  1. Drain salmon thoroughly, squeezing out excess moisture. In bowl, flake salmon with fork. Add egg, onion, barbecue sauce, and bread crumbs. Blend thoroughly until mixture is almost smooth. Divide and form mixture into 4 patties.
  2. Preheat broiler, oven, or grill to medium high. Place patties on spray-coated broiling pan or well-oiled perforated grill rack. Set 4 to 5 inches from heat. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side. Add lettuce, tomato, and cheese if desired.

Dill Sauce: Cream last 3 ingredients together, refrigerate 1 hour or more. Spoon or squeeze mixture using pastry bag onto burgers. Serve on hearty hamburger buns or focaccia rolls.
