1 pound skinless salmon fillet, finely chopped
4 green onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 egg white, slightly beaten
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 soft rolls, split, toasted, and buttered
4 butter lettuce leaves
Sweet potato chips
2 small sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced ⅛-inch thick
2 tablespoons canola oil for frying
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Red pepper mayonnaise
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
For salmon, in large bowl, combine salmon, onion, dill, Dijon, lemon zest and juice, egg white, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Form mixture into four 3/4-inch thick patties. Chill for 30 minutes.
For mayonnaise, combine ingredients in small bowl and mix well. Cover and chill.
For sweet potato chips, preheat air fryer to 350°F, lightly coat air-fryer basket with cooking spray. Place just enough of the sweet potatoes in the basket to form a single layer and cook until crispy, about 15 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with sea salt and set aside.
Preheat air fryer to 400°F. You don’t want to overcook your salmon burgers. We recommend that you serve this salmon medium in the middle, as overcooking the salmon will result in dry patties. Air fry for 10-12 minutes per side to get tender, flaky, perfectly cooked salmon patties.
To assemble, place lettuce on bottom roll, top with salmon burger, sweet potato chips and red pepper mayonnaise. Cover with top. Serves 4.
