Ingredients

    2 Tbs reduced-sodium soy sauce
    1.5 teaspoons wasabi powder
    0.5 teaspoon honey
    1 pound salmon fillet, skinned
    2 scallions, finely chopped
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    2 Tbs minced peeled fresh ginger
    1 tsp toasted sesame oil

Directions

1. Whisk soy sauce, wasabi powder and honey in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.
2. With a large chef's knife, chop salmon using quick, even, straight-up-and-down motions (do not rock the knife through the fish or it will turn mushy). Continue chopping, rotating the knife, until you have a mass of roughly 1/4-inch pieces. Transfer to a large bowl. Add scallions, egg, ginger and oil; stir to combine. Form the mixture into 4 patties. The mixture will be moist and loose, but holds together nicely once the first side is cooked.
3. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the patties and cook for 4 minutes. Turn and continue to cook until firm and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Spoon the reserved wasabi glaze evenly over the burgers and cook for 15 seconds more. Serve immediately.

  • This calorie count can't be right. The recipe calls for a pound of salmon and says it makes 4 servings. There is no way 4 ounces of salmon has only 110 calories so you have to add about 80 calories per burger to this calorie count.

  • I found this on eatingwell.com and made it for a lunch get-together. Everyone loved it! The salmon was fresh tasting and not overpowered by the other ingredients. I served it with an asian broccoli slaw. Yum yum! I will definitely make it again. - 3/26/11
