Chipotle Salmon Burgers with Stone Fruit Salsa

by Gavan on July 9, 2010

If you’re on the US East coast you’re getting your ears scorched right about now as a massive heatwave continues to burn things up. So what do you eat when you’re trying to beat the heat?
I can’t seem to get enough of all summer fruit myself right now. Berries are amazing as are melons, mangoes, pineapple and all kinds of stone fruit. I actually got these apricots and nectarines from locally sourced Tenerelli Orchards for an event I catered last weekend. I had a few leftover so that’s where this little beauty came from. Served chilled as a snack or as I did make something delicious with them, either way you’re sorted.
The contrast of the smokey flavour of the burger against the sweet fruit relish works brilliantly.

RECIPE:
Serves 2

1 lb wild Pacific Salmon
2 tbsp chipotle peppers in abodo sauce – chopped
1 tbsp + 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 lime – zested
1/2 lime – juiced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp olive oil

Fruit Relish:
1 Nectarine (Diamond Bright) – small dice
2 Apricots (Golden Sweet) – small dice
1/2 ripe avocado – small dice
1 tbsp red onion – fine dice
squeeze lime juice
pinch salt

Gently mix relish ingredients together in a bowl and refrigerate until needed.

DIRECTIONS:
Two Options:
1. Pop everything into a food processor and pulse for 30 seconds to combine or
2. Finely dice the salmon, as I did and in a large mixing bowl combine everything together and mix.
Make into two 8oz burgers.

Preheat non-stick skillet on medium for 1 minute. Drizzle olive oil and sear burgers for 3-4 minutes each side until golden brown and firm to touch.
This is pretty straight forward and it cooks fast.

Enjoy!
